The first ever NC Beer Festival showcasing Women in Beer!


Biere de Femme  beer festival will showcase Women throughout the Beer Industry with an emphasis on NC women beer professionals. All proceeds from the festival will be donated to the Pink Boots Society. Pink Boots Society is an organization created to assist, inspire and encourage women beer industry professionals to advance their careers through education. The money raised will directly go to providing scholarships for women to advance their beer careers.

The festival will showcase 30 breweries. Each brewery will be pouring at least 2 beers, one of which will be a beer created specifically for the festival, with women employees of the brewery. There will also be representatives from the numerous Brewing Degree Programs from Colleges across the state, a wall dedicated to the History of Women in Beer, a book release, sensory training for guests, and many more attractions showcasing the women who work so hard in the beer industry.

Guests will receive a commemorative glass from the event and will be able to sample beer from all of the participating breweries.

VIP guests will have an additional hour to sample, and will also receive a copy of the book being released “Brewing up Ambition”, a T-Shirt as well as access to the VIP tent. Many of the women featured in “Brewing up Ambition” will be participating in the festival, and will be on hand to autograph their pages in the book.

Local Food trucks will be on hand selling delicious meals!

All brewery spots have been filled but requests to be a vendor, sponsor, or volunteer can be sent to cparnin@siebelinstitute.com.

Cheers to Women in Beer!
