#PinkBootsCollaboration – PorchDrinking.com
Female beer professionals from all over the Austin, TX area came together in February and March to participate in the annual Pink Boots Collaboration Brew Day. Held every year in honor of International Women’s Day, Pink Boots members from around the world team up to brew a beer of their choice using the unique YCH Hops Pink Boots blend; a portion of the proceeds benefit the Pink Boots Society scholarship funds.
Certainly, Pink Boots Society events present a bonding opportunity for women of the industry, while simultaneously fostering awareness of their contributions. Nevertheless, from the presence of Omega Yeast Labs to the many brewers and industry women present, the event made it abundantly clear that crafting excellent beer served as priority #1. And, in doing so, demonstrated how possession of a Y-chromosome has nothing to do with becoming a skilled, imaginative beer professional.
Each year women from all over the world participate in Pink Boots Society’s annual Pink Boots Collaboration Brew Day in celebration of International Women’s Day. I sat down with President Laura Ulrich to learn more about this year’s event.
