Five Crafting A Strategy National Scholarship Recipients Announced
Scholarship Recipients
0

The Pink Boots Society is excited to announce the five Crafting A Strategy national recipients: Shalanda Jackson, Melisa Lizarraga, Liliana Madrid, Josefina Rosario, and Callie Tuschen.

Shalanda Jackson joined the Philadelphia Chapter last summer and immediately started attending as many Pink Boots meetings and activities as possible. She participated in the Yakima Chief Hops Blend 2021 Zoom call, where the hops were selected for the 2021 Pink Boots Collaboration Brew Day®. She has now taken on an additional volunteering role within Pink Boots as a member of the Membership Task Force. Shalanda believes that the Crafting A Strategy membership is a great learning opportunity because it is a global online learning platform that will allow her to have more insight into the brewing industry. One of her professional goals is to take her career overseas, and this membership will help make that goal a reality. She is also looking forward to attending the USciences Brewing Science Certification program in the fall of 2021 to further her brewing education.

Melisa Lizarraga began her craft brewing journey in 2015 at Thirsty Monk Brewery, where she achieved her Cicerone Level 1: Certified Beer Server Certificate. Shortly after, she moved to Colorado and joined Cerberus Brewing Company when they first opened their doors. She was responsible for coordinating with the assistant brewer to create an educational program for staff. In the spring of 2020, she moved to Montana, where she is currently an assistant manager at Cranky Sam Public House. Melisa has brought her previous knowledge and experience to help educate staff by providing resources and even created a Beer 101 guide. She recently started to write for a state-wide beer magazine, Montana Craft Beer Connection, where she will coordinate with the editor to create a quarterly piece featuring women and other minorities in the brewing industry. Melisa feels like the Crafting A Strategy membership is not only an investment in herself but also an investment in her community and that the tools she will gain from this opportunity will help her be a better educator.

Liliana Madrid is a first-generation Mexican-American born and raised in California until she moved to Midwest about three years ago. At that time, her new home had only one brewery, and the nearest Pink Boots Chapter was over 100 miles away. Despite the 4+ hour drive, her first interaction with the Chapter was during their Pink Boots Collaboration Brew Day®, and she couldn’t wait to share what she had learned as well as their creation with her new brewery when she returned. She is currently a Beertender at Jackson Street Brewery, which is now 1 of 3 (and counting!) breweries in Sioux City, IA. She believes that the Crafting A Strategy membership will help her grow alongside these up-and-coming breweries and help bridge the gaps between gender inequalities and minority representation, not only locally but also within the entire beer industry. She looks forward to working more closely with other women in the brewing field and gaining more knowledge to bring communities together.

Josefina Rosario-Simone grew up in the Dominican Republic, where she learned many life lessons through an islander’s lens. At a young age, she was told that she had physical barriers and was told that any expressive profession would not be worthwhile. Still, the island life taught her to have a positive “can-do attitude” and strive for a way for her to express herself. She studied as an architect to find an “approved” profession where she could express herself through art, but she was left craving more. In 2009, she moved to Spain and learned what life was like off the island. She now has had more opportunities to connect with different regions and to experience different cultures’ perspectives, and she was now able to travel around Europe, particularly in Belgium, where her exchange-student sister lived. Josefina moved to the U.S. and took her first homebrewing class in 2017. With the ability to design her own recipes, she has found new ways to express herself through beer. She truly believes that beer is an art form, an expression, and should not be limited to culture, race, or gender. Josefina aspires to inspire more females in the brewing industry, particularly within Pink Boots and the Latina Community worldwide. She is currently a beertender at Four City Brewery in New Jersey.

Callie Tuschen is co-owner of Buffalo Ridge Brewing Project, a 5-barrel brewery located in Hartford, South Dakota. After being open for only a year, Buffalo Ridge Brewing Project was recognized for its charitable giving and was named Hartford’s Chamber of Commerce: 2020 Business of the Year! They are very community orientated and are both pet and family-friendly. Callie has been called “a mover and a shaker” by local community members, which she believes is due to her passion for putting people first, and stepped into a “community leader” role without even realizing it. The Crafting A Strategy membership stood out to her as an incredible resource to help guide her through the new adventure of owning a brewery. Callie believes that she will gain the confidence and knowledge to help put Buffalo Ridge Brewery on the map for leadership, innovation, and community-focused growth. She also a pioneer by helping start the Pink Boots South Dakota Chapter.

Crafting A Strategy (CAS) is a global online learning platform available to scholarship recipients for one year. Used in universities and breweries worldwide, CAS has over 150 digital content pieces specific to the business needs of brewing entrepreneurs. These include podcasts, webinars, case studies, white papers, instructional videos, blogs, and a professional forum. Scholarship recipients will also receive a weekly CAS newsletter with industry analysis, advice, and links to new content and forums.

Yuengling Women in Brewing Scholarship Recipients Announced
Scholarship Recipients, Women In Beer

The Pink Boots Society and D.G. Yuengling & Son, Inc. are excited to introduce the 2020 recipients of the Yuengling Women in Brewing Scholarships! Both scholarship recipients will receive up to $12,500 to further their education through one of these four programs: the University of the Sciences Brewing Science Certificate, the Cincinnati State A.A.S. in Brewing Science (with optional Sales & Marketing certificate), the Siebel Institute Concise Course in Brewing Technology, and eCornell University’s Women in Leadership Certificate. Each of these programs work to build on technical and leadership skills, as well as brewing education.

Lauren Stone, of Left Hand Brewing Company in Colorado, has been in the brewing industry for four years. She began as an intern on a ten-barrel system developing comprehensive knowledge of the brewhouse and cellar. After her internship, she moved to a thirty-barrel brewhouse with a three-barrel pilot system. During Lauren’s two-and-a-half year period at this brewhouse, she worked her way from assistant brewer to head brewer. While she was in this role, a number of her recipes took home state awards! When Lauren moved to Left Hand Brewing Company, she was one of the quickest team members to make it through the company’s brewer certification program. 

As someone who has been in a leadership role already, Lauren is looking forward to the Women in Leadership certificate to build on the skills she has already begun to develop, and she’s looking forward to exploring alternative ways to approach problems she has faced in the past. Lauren spoke about her passion for the Pink Boots Society and this course saying, “I think it’s extremely important to have women in leadership positions as role models to encourage other women to be a part of the beer world. I am passionate about sharing my knowledge and experiences with others, especially if it means it will have a positive impact on other women.” Lauren’s passion and goals for women and the brewing industry as a whole, are just a small portion of why she was selected for this fantastic opportunity.  

The other recipient of the Yuengling Women in Brewing Scholarship is Caroline Wallace of the Texas Brewers Guild. Caroline has been with the guild for the past five years, making moves working up front and behind the scenes. She wears many hats, as the deputy director of a statewide organization, including social media, working conferences and festivals; all the way to legislation outreach. Caroline has worked on implementing an annual statewide beer festival, and changing state beer law for the good of the breweries! She has had the honor of representing craft beer at a state and federal level. But before she began the fight for breweries everywhere, Caroline was the co-author on two history-based beer books and an avid byline for a women-run beer blog.

Caroline is also planning to take the Women in Leadership course through eCornell University. As a previous chapter leader, Caroline knows the value of the Pink Boots “pay-it-forward” requirement and is excited to be a part of sharing the knowledge with other women in the brewing industry. Caroline discussed this in her application by saying, “I believe this scholarship, in particular, comes with an invaluable opportunity and heightened responsibility to assist, inspire, and educate fellow members.” Caroline’s due diligence when looking into this course was just a fraction of why she was considered for this scholarship.  

In addition to taking courses that make up the Women in Leadership certificate, each of the ladies will each receive a pair of pink steel-toe rubber boots when they fulfill the “Pay It Forward” requirement associated with their scholarships.

The Pink Boots Society is excited to announce Andrea Sheehey and Maria Del Puig Vencente as the latest National recipients of the Crafting a Strategy Scholarship. In addition, the Philadelphia chapter also offered this scholarship to a member and awarded it to Alyssa Shoemaker.     

Andrea Sheehey of Mighty Squirrel Brewing Company was recommended for the Crafting a Strategy Scholarship due to her ability to absorb information and make it useful to herself and others. As a certified beer server and beertender around Massachusetts, Andrea has developed a skill of being able to read people and share her beer knowledge. She was a fitting choice for this scholarship as someone who enjoys learning and sharing information. Andrea looks forward to using her access into Crafting a Strategy to be able to take her career to a new level. In addition to the education she will have access to, the forums included will allow her to build an array of connections.

 

Maria Del Puig Vencente is the owner of Cerveses Lluna in Alcoli, Spain. Maria fell for craft beerduring her chemical engineering studies. While she was interning she cycled through the departments in an industrialized brewery. Crafting a strategy would help Maria be able to access information which would not only help in her pursuit to open a tap room portion of her brewery. But, has the potential to help with the non-profit legalization work she is doing in Spain. Maria is an active member in the craft brewers association. She also sits on the Pink Boots Spain Chapter’s board as the  financial secretary and manager.

Alyssa Shoemaker studied at the American Brewers Guild and is already a woman in a leadership position as Pharmacy Manager. Her goal is to open her own brewery in York, PA. Crafting a Strategy will help Alyssa reach her goals because it is easily accessible and has a wealth of information. As a novice in the industry, and in a geographic location that is not particularly conducive to frequent industry networking events, and other shared resources accessing and utilizing the content from Crafting a Strategy will be a vital stepping stone for Alyssa as she works towards opening her own microbrewery.

This opportunity will propel Alyssa to be a more successful business owner and better brewer, so down the line when she is running a successful business with an amazing product, encouraging her team to exceed their goals, she will also advocate for her community and also inspire and assist other women in the industry. 

Crafting a Strategy is a global online learning platform. There are over 150 digital content pieces including podcasts, webinars and case studies geared toward the business needs of brewing entrepreneurs. These scholarship recipients will have access to the content for a year of learning. As with all Pink Boots Sociarships, these ladies will do a pay it forward, sharing the information from the course.

The Pink Boots Society is excited to announce Rebecca Carpenter of Turtle Swamp Brewing as the latest recipient of the Road to Cicerone® Course Scholarship.  Rebecca was selected by the Pink Boots scholarship committee, composed of women in different parts of the industry. Rebecca has already passed the Cicerone level 1: certified Beer Server, This showed the committee her drive and ability to self motivate, which are important traits when working with online courses. 

Rebecca has been with Turtle swamp for about a year and a half, in this time she was promoted from beertender to tap room manager. With the promotion Rebecca went from being the person given the descriptions; to being the person who helps write them with the brewers. She had the self awareness to be able to reflect on herself that this was an area of her position she strives to be better at, and this course will do just that. 

In Rebecca’s position she helps portray the vision of the brewers to the beer lovers who enter the taproom. This means she often works with the brewers on tastings, collecting knowledge about their releases for the taproom staff and patrons alike.  This year she even worked with them on a pink boots collaboration day brew! 

The Road to Cicerone® course  is a collection of beer styles and processes, which will help the reader prepare for the Certified Cicerone® exam. The course is a mixture of books and quizzes. The course books will teach and lend insight into reasons and processes. For example, the brewing process of the course book will help Rebecca to better understand the brewing process and how the brewers came to their decisions. The keeping and serving beer course will help with the front of house, ensuring nothing is being improperly handled between the brewery and the taproom.
