Innovative Lives: How Women Shaped the Alcohol Industry

Women have been working in the American alcohol industry since before the founding of our country. From brewing early colonial beer to playing important roles in prohibition, they have helped shape this industry and continue to make an impact.

Join us this March as we raise a glass to their history and hear from present day practitioners. The evening will feature a panel discussion with:

– Emily Bruno and Julie Verratti, founders of Denizens Brewing Co.
– Carol Stoudt, first female brewmaster in US since prohibition and founder of Stoudts Brewing Co.
– Meredith Grelli, co-owner of Wigle Whiskey
– Leslie Przybylek, curator, Heinz History Center

After the panel, we’ll open up to an interactive reception with tastings and activities to further explore historical tastes, modern craft brews, and more.

Tickets are $40 and include a hearty plate of appetizers and drinks. Please note, this event is 21+ only.
