Crawford hosted the Women’s Collaboration Brew Day, on March 8, when participants joined forces from: Bent River Brewing, Radicle Effects Brewerks, Great River Brewery, Front Street Brewery, Five Cities Brewing, Green Tree Brewery, Gezellig Brewing Company, Mississippi River Distillery, Walsh Apiary, Brewed TV, and CBW. The Collaboration Brew Day was born from a desire to take part in International Women’s Day (IWD) March 8th by raising the profile of women’s roles in the beer industry. The event is promoted by the IWCBD and Pink Boots Society organizations.
Karen Schaar, of CBW has organized the event through the Powder Kegger’s. The Powder Kegger’s are a group of women who are interested in brewing beer. “The mission is to help other women discover this rewarding hobby, and to share our knowledge and support. We are a Brigade of Female Fermenters! So, I am super excited to do this together with other professional women in the local brewing community,” Schaar said.
International Women's Collaboration Brew Day: The event is all in conjunction with the International Collaboration Brew Day for Women. The event embraces all women who brew, whether it be on a commercial basis or for their home brewing hobby. The aim of the day is for women who are passionate about beer to get together and brew. Through the course of collaboration people learn, network and develop their own personal skills. Brewers help each other out, advise where necessary and when asked, this is a natural part of the brewing community and aids good beer to be produced. IWCBD was set up to help develop this ethos among brewers.
