Kim Leshinski of Hail to the Ale has organized one of the most interesting events of Chicago Craft Beer Week and it just so happens to feature influential women in Chicago’s growing craft beer scene. All are invited this Thursday (including guys!) to Riverview Tavern (1958 W Roscoe St) starting at 6:30 p.m.
The event celebrates women’s contributions to the ever growing world of craft beer, and will feature ladies and their beers from Two Brothers Brewing, Goose Island, Rock Bottom Chicago, Lagunitas, Greenbush Brewing, Metropolitan, 4 Paws Brewing, Temperance Beer Company, Flossmoor Station, and local craft beer store Bottles and Cans.
Beyond just drinking beers with some accomplished women in the craft beer scene, your beer purchases will benefit Chicago’s chapter of “Dress for Success,” a charity that promotes economic independence by providing professional clothing and resources to disadvantaged women.
A screening of the documentary, “The Love of Beer” is also scheduled. “The Love of Beer” focuses on the rise of women in the beer industry.
And, if all this isn’t enough, there will also be a special tapping of a collaborative beer, cheekily named “99 Problems.” The beer, a saison with ginger and chamomile, was brewed by Jennifer Piotter of Greenbush, Hayley Shine of Rock Bottom, Ashleigh Arnold, Maryhelen Harper, and Ashley Hunsader of Two Brothers, Tracy Hurst of Metropolitan, Claudia Jendron of Temperance Beer Company, and Jessica Murphy of Girls Like Beer Too.
Can’t wait to raise a glass with you there!
