Q: Who are the Pink Boots Society?

A: We are the female movers and shakers in the beer industry. We get the beer brewed and fermented with the highest possible quality. We also own breweries, package the beer, design beers, serve beers, write about beer, and cover just about any aspect of beer, and we are all women. Most importantly, we teach each other what we know through our own seminar programs, and we help each other advance our beer careers by raising money for educational scholarships.

Q: How do I join Pink Boots Society?

A: PBS membership is open to women who are actively employed or retired from a career in the beer industry, who are in the process of opening a brewery, or are students currently enrolled in a beer industry focused program. Go to the Pink Boots Society Membership Application to start the process. There are two parts to joining, and once you have filled out both pages and submitted, your application will be reviewed by the Membership Committee who will decide whether to approve your application. If you have been approved, you will receive an email confirmation which will let you know you are a member and direct you to a link where you can pay your dues. Once your dues are paid, you will have full access to the PBS website.

Q: Who is eligible for PBS Scholarships?

A: PBS scholarships are open to Professional Members of Pink Boots Society who are current on dues.

Q: Can I post events?

A: No, but you can request an event be posted to the PBS calendar using our “Add an Event” form—as long as it’s focused on Pink Boots Society.

Q: How can I get more involved?

A: We’d love to have you volunteer! Fill out our “Become a Volunteer” form and we’ll get you started!
