Rochester Real Beer Week: The Women & Beer Symposium

Here in Rochester, it’s not officially Spring  until the lilacs bloom, and Summer kicks off with Rochester Real Beer Week! This year, I am SO happy to announce that I’ll be hosting my own event, The Women & Beer Symposium, at Cure, located in the Rochester Public Market!

Women & Beer Symposium - More info at: http://thecraftbeergirl.comThe event will be held on Monday, June 16, 2014, and will begin with the Womens Industry Beer Dinner at 6pm. The 4 course menu will feature the inspired cuisine Cure is known for, expertly paired with world-class craft beer from across the country. Women participating in all levels of the craft beer industry are encouraged to attend, including those working with breweries, distributors, bars & restaurants, and retail beer stores; as well as beer writers & bloggers. Tickets for the Industry Dinner are $65, and can be purchased online.

After dinner, 8pm – 10pm, Cure will open to the public for a free open house, featuring beer shots, floats and cocktails at the bar. So if you can’t make the dinner, here is your opportunity to come out to meet and mingle with leading female voices in the craft beer world. No tickets are required for the open house.

The goal of the night is to celebrate the increasing contributions women are making to support the craft beer industry, and to provide a space for thoughtful discussion, social connection, and networking. Although women are the focus, men are welcome to attend both the dinner and the open house. So please join me for this very special night, it’s sure to be a treat!

The Craft Beer Girl is getting Married!

Dogfish Head ProposalThe clever guy popped the question in a way sure to win the heart of this Craft Beer Girl, by hiding the ring at the bottom of a Dogfish Head “Heaven & Hell”. For those of you that are unfamiliar with the concoction, it’s a 50/50 blend of Dogfish Head’s 120 Minute IPA (15-20 ABV | 120 IBU) and World Wide Stout (15-20 ABV | 70 IBU). The blending of two colossal beers, both amazing in their own right, to create one harmonious, complex masterpiece not to be trifled with… it’s poetic.

Tasting beer and visiting breweries is something that JD and I enjoy together as a couple so you can be sure that the spirit of craft beer will be close at hand as we plan our nuptials. We both like the idea of getting married in the Fall so we’ll likely have about a year and a half before the big day. So far, this has allowed me to enjoy the moment without feeling the pressure of any planning just yet. Stay tuned to the blog along with my pinterest board for updates and wedding ideas!
