Queen of Craft 2016 Details Announced

January 27, 2016

The women of Wellington Brewery are excited to offer a variety of educational sessions to the craft beer lovers of Guelph and surrounding areas. For the third year running, Queen of Craft will happen every Friday in March at various downtown Guelph locations. The program is designed for women and brings some of craft beer's most influential speakers to our city to discuss various concepts in beer, brewing and the industry. With proceeds going directly to Guelph-Wellington Women-In-Crisis, this program helps support the wellness of our community.

"Queen of Craft aims to provide women a positive environment to explore all facets of the craft beer industry in hopes to encourage interested participants to get involved in the scene," explains Wellington Brewery Event Coordinator, Karyn Boscariol. She adds, "It brings women together to learn, bond and appreciate the contributions women have made to beer culture over the centuries."

Queen of Craft 2016 will include prominent speakers, open discussions, live cooking demonstrations and a guide to host your own pairing party. The individual sessions will focus on woman-positive beer blogs, an education on the workings of yeast in beer, a culinary show-down using beer as the main ingredient and an exploration of pairing beer with cheese and chocolate. Participants who attend all four sessions will have a chance to be a part of our Queens Brew Team 2016. This team of eager women will come up with a recipe and then brew this beer on Wellington's pilot batch system. Proceeds from bottle and keg sales will go to support Guelph-Wellington Women In Crisis.
