Seattle, WA : Pike Brewing Company is thrilled to present the fourth annual Women in Beer an official Seattle Beer Week event. This celebration features women involved in the Northwest craft beer industry along with local, women cheese makers, restaurateurs, cider makers, chocolatiers and more.

Women in Beer takes place on Monday, May 11, 2015 from 6:00 to 9:00 pm at Pike Brewing Company and benefits Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest. Women have long held influential roles in all aspects of beer making. They were the principal brewers for centuries and, were responsible for introducing hops to the malty brew. Today, with the Northwest craft beer renaissance, more and more women are taking the lead at local breweries as brewers, bottlers, sales people and owners. Women in Beer celebrates both women’s historic role in beer and highlights how women are shaping today’s craft beer resurgence.
