Queen of Craft 2017 Details Announced
March 1, 2017
Returning for the 4th annual installment, Wellington Brewery is excited to announce details for the 2017 Queen of Craft women's beer series. Every Friday in March, women beer experts will host a series of guided samplings and discussions exploring different topics and themes in the world of craft beer. Sessions will include "beerography," craft beer myth-busting, women & beer media, beer and cheese pairings, and a women's Beer Bash featuring collaboration beers with craft brewers from across Ontario. Events are scheduled at various locations throughout downtown Guelph.
"Queen of Craft is a means to bring together women in the community to learn, give back, and have a great time doing so," says event founder and organizer Karyn Boscariol.
Proceeds from Queen of Craft will go to support Guelph-Wellington Women-In-Crisis. To date, the event series has raised over $12,000 for the organization supporting their vital work in the region.
