Inspiration Begins in Your Boots!
Women In Beer
, , ,


Another great article on the roots of our boots!  Thanks for empowering women in the craft beer industry, Teri!  Education and communication are catapulting us through that glass ceiling.

“While Teri knew that women worked at breweries across the country, the women she met didn’t realize that other female brewers actually existed. As a result, they all asked Teri the same question: how many of us are out there? Teri had no idea so she started tracking the women brewers she met along her trip. Her initial list of 60 women became the inspiration behind the Pink Boots Society.  In 2007, Teri founded the Pink Boots Society, an international non-profit organization that empowers women beer professionals to advance their careers in the beer industry through education. The organization’s name was inspired by Teri’s pink boots she wore throughout her trip.  In 2008, she invited the women she met on her trip to participate in their first meeting at the Craft Brewers Conference in San Diego. They brainstormed and discussed the challenges they faced as women in the beer industry. As a result, they realized the industry needed a stronger female voice.”

“We never had a meeting with all estrogen in the room. We wanted to create an organization just for women. If we didn’t stand for something, then we didn’t stand for anything. It was important to differentiate ourselves in the industry.”

Twisted Pine & PBS Event!!

Twisted Pine

Hey Hey Ladies!  Nicol Winkler is our Pink Boots Society International and National Chapter Liaison, and is one woman behind January 17th’s Colorado collaboration between PBS and Twisted Pine Brewery.  The event will start tomorrow at 12pm with a special tapping of Alpha Queen, a double IPA brewed by the women of Twisted Pine.  Members of both collaboration partners will be on hand, you can purchase tickets for a food pairing, beer touring, art filled event, or you can show up for a fine craft beer and good company. 10% of proceeds for the entire day will be donated to the Pink Boots Society!  Cheers to Twisted Pine Brewery!

“I think the event is a fantastic opportunity for the Boulder and Denver beer-lover communities to get together and celebrate a 19-year Twisted Pine history that has been guided by strong, female leadership. Their leading ladies, AND men, will be with us on Saturday to talk to us about their story, and their beer. The ticketed tours will be running at 3:00pm, and 4:15pm featuring a 5-course flight and beer-infused food menu, a private brewery tour, and trivia component at the end. However, 10% of the tap room sales all day, will benefit Pink Boots Society / 501 (c)3, so we encourage people to just stop by for a beer as well.”  Nicol says.  She will be kicking off the tour.
