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.

“What we more experienced brewers don’t remember are the women who aren’t there anymore – the women who dropped off. Maybe it’s because they didn’t get the support they needed.”

“And so, in 2007, the Pink Boots Society was born. Fahrendorf, the self-proclaimed ‘mother to the Pink Boots,’ and a small group of volunteers write articles, organize and advertise scholarships for female brewers, hold meetings, host educational seminars and train women to become judges in national brewing competitions. She sees the future of PBS including a full-time grant writer and executive director. ‘We need somebody to take it to the next level,’ Fahrendorf said.”

Fast-Growing Craft Brewers Slow to Adopt Workplace Safety

“The number of injuries reported to OSHA does not reflect the number of injured employees.”  

“…because brewers often do not know that many states require them to report serious injuries.

In one of those cases, Teri Fahrendorf was working her first job as a rookie brewmaster at a now-closed San Francisco brewery in 1989 when she used a kettle that was too small to cook wort, a pre-beer solution.

The boiling wort spilled out of the kettle and into Fahrendorf’s knee-high rubber boots. Doctors took strips of skin from her head to graft onto her foot, she said.

Now Fahrendorf promotes safety standards in the industry as founder and president of the Pink Boots Society, a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping women succeed in brewing.  Fahrendorf said the brewery did not report the incident, and it does not appear in OSHA data.”
