0

Pink Boots Society is proud to announce the recipient for the Barth Haas Hops Academy scholarship Lillian Schulz.

Lillian Schulz recently became a brewer at Right Proper Brewing Company in Washington, D.C. She also was the 2020 Pink Boots Collaboration Brew Day® Coordinator for the Washington, D.C. Chapter and was featured on the Beer Me! Podcast where she and another D.C. member promoted the brew, the Chapter and shared their experiences as women in production. The collaboration event offered her the opportunity to elevate and engage with other women in brewing, encouraging her to now be a Co-Leader. Lillian believes learning from the experts at Barth Haas Hops Academy will help build upon her own experiences to become a more capable brewer, innovator, and problem-solver.

Barth Haas Hops Academy course is a two-day on-site course consisting of presentations by hop and brewing experts in September 2021 (dates TBD) at Haas Innovations center in Yakima, WA, USA. This course will cover topics including new trends in hop breeding, hop chemistry and brewing techniques. Guest speakers include top researchers and growers presenting on new hop varieties, products, usage, and analytical and sensory evaluation techniques to gauge hop and beer quality. In addition, the course includes tours of the Haas hop farm and production facility, where attendees will experience the hop fields and witness all components of hop production from whole hops to CO2 extract, as well as a guided tour of Haas Innovations Research Brewery.

In partnership with BBL, Inc. USA Delirium, Pink Boots Society is excited to announce the recipient for the 2022 Deliria Brew Day Experiential Scholarship, Becky Peppelman.

Becky Peppelman is currently the head brewer and consultant at Conflux Brewing Company in Missoula, MT. Along with helping to reset the brewery, she dedicates much of her time to training, educating, and working with staff on lesser-known beer styles and food pairings. Becky has hosted Pink Boots Collaboration Brew Days® in the past, but 2021 was the first team consisting of almost solely production workers, making the uplifting experience one she will remember for the rest of her life. Becky has been a Pink Boots member for six years and has been the Montana Chapter Finance Liaison for the last 2 years, where she frequently helps lead and organize Chapter events as well as promotes education and inspiration to her fellow members. Becky is looking forward to her next venture of opening a new brewery as head brewer in her hometown of Helena, MT., focusing on classic European beer styles. She believes the Deliria Brew Day Experiential Trip scholarship will not only give her the opportunity to brew a once-a-year beer with passionate females, but it will also broaden her understanding of traditional Belgian brewing and beer styles. 

BBL, Inc. USA Deliria Brew Day Experiential Scholarship is an onsite experience in January 2022 in Ghent, Belgium where the recipient will participate in Delirum’s annual Deliria Brew Day. This beer is made by women every year to celebrate International Women’s Day on March 8th. Local travel, hotel accommodations, beer, and meals are provided by Delirium as well as a travel stipend from PBS.

Susie thinks the Yakima Chief Hops and Brew School will allow her to educate and empower underrepresented groups by eliminating barriers by means of making the language and resources accessible. Check out her blog Susie on Tap where she shares what navigating the craft beer world is like through the eyes of a scientist.

Elizabeth “Betsi” Good is the Head Kombucha Brewer at Four Corners Brewing Company in Dallas, TX. As the head brewer, she is responsible for many aspects of the brewing process, including her most recent project of creating a kettle sour recipe for the 2021 Pink Boots Collaboration Brew Day® along with several other collaborations supporting the North Texas Chapter and other local breweries. She enjoys the opportunity to educate others about brewing and believes the Yakima Chief Hops and Brew School will expand her ability to help her do just that. Betsi was recently a guest on the Craft Beer Professionals’ Tuesday Talks focusing on supporting parents in the workplace.

Hops and Brew School® is an annual event offering craft brewers the opportunity to personally experience the thrill of the American hop harvest in Yakima and see exactly where your great beer begins. Led by industry experts, multi-generational hop growers, and our technical solutions specialists, this multi-day event includes technical seminars on product usage, recipe formulation, experimental varieties, brewing practices, and more.
