Bière de Femme Comes To The Queen City

Join more than 35 breweries from across North Carolina at the Unknown Brewing Company, March 21, for the fourth installment of craft brewing’s most unique traveling festival.

Recently voted as one of the top 10 beer festivals in the country by the USA Today, Biére de Femme festival was created to raise scholarship funds for the Pink Boots Society (PBS), an international nonprofit organization of women in beer who seek to assist, inspire and encourage other female beer professionals through education and community, as well as to showcase the amazing talent of the women in the brewing industry. 

At Biére de Femme, female beer professionals from across the state will join forces with their breweries to showcase their talents and create unique, small-batch beers specifically for Biére de Femme. Several breweries will also elevate the beer festival experience by providing educational and sensory booths to illustrate the importance of craft beer education. 

Because women often lack the resources of their counterparts in such a male-dominated industry, all proceeds from Biére de Femme – more than $33,000 over the past three years – fund PBS educational scholarships for women in the beer industry. 

Those scholarships pay for things like off-flavor tasting courses, brewery startup seminars, BeerSavvy cicerone courses and immersion trips to Germany.

Today, PBS is an international nonprofit with roughly 2,000 members and hundreds of chapters throughout the world. The North Carolina chapter started in 2012 with around 40 members, and has since grown to five regional chapters and over 150 members.
