Female Brewers of the Midwest Team Up for Women’s History Month

In honor of Women’s History Month, female brewery representatives from breweries spanning the Midwest are teaming up for a variety of events and specialty releases. The initiative will bring awareness of females in the male-dominated craft beer industry while also raising funds for Milwaukee-based Sojourner Family Peace Center.

Last year, the effort was led by five female industry representatives supporting 11 events, raising $2,119. This year’s goal is set at $4,000 and the breweries will match donations (up to $2,000). Through March 31, the second-annual special Women’s History Month initiative includes 23 special events hosted throughout Wisconsin.

“As more awareness is raised, the more participants we have leading this charge allowing us to continue to grow, expand and command attention in our industry,” says Julianna Pierandozzi, sales representative of 3 Sheeps Brewing Co. and co-founder of the Women’s History Month initiative , in a press release. “With the dual purpose initiative – awareness for females in the industry and fundraising for a worthy cause – we are encouraged by the support, growth and camaraderie.”
