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!

Women Enjoying Beer: State of Women and Beer

So, a few months back I filled out this survey put together by the ladies over at Women Enjoying Beer.  Well they’re now in the home stretch of their Women + Beer Survey for 2012 campaign and they need your help to reach 100% US representation. The survey is an opportunity for all women, whether they consume beer or not, to speak up about their relationship with beer. They’ll be publishing various works based on their research, which will include information gathered from the 2012 Survey. (Watch for those to start being available in early 2013.)

A few states are still unrepresented: Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Delaware, Mississippi, North Dakota, Rhode Island, West Virginia, and Wyoming. We know for a fact there are women and beer in all these states as well – please ask those you know to help WEB reach 100%.  In fact, women globally are encouraged to contribute. Those that have include Canada and Australia. Last Submissions Due 12/15/12.

Consumers & professionals alike are encouraged to contribute. WEB reminds their readers that those who provide feedback are helping to elevate beer, promote equality for women, and shift culture forward.  Anyway, I thought maybe you’d like to see how I answered the survey questions… a chance to get better acquainted with The Craft Beer Girl, if you will.  At the end, I’ve also posted the link to the survey, in case you’re interested in filling it out yourself.

Cheers!
