Boys Are From Märzen Podcast | Louisville Women in Beer Panel
Louisville Beer Week, held Oct. 22 through Oct. 29, celebrated all things Louisville beer. One event stood out from the rest, the Women in Beer panel. On Wednesday, Oct. 27, five women took the stage at Logan Street Market to discuss the challenges and triumphs of working in the beer industry.
Kindsey Bernhard was fortunate to be able to be one of those five women and the moderator of the Women in Beer panel. So, in Episode 57 of the “Boys Are From Märzen” podcast, Kindsey is joined by Lori Beck, Kaitlyn Colberg, Leah Dienes and Amelia Pillow.
