On March 9, 2019, Waypost Brewing Co. and Girls Pint Out will join breweries around the globe and brew a batch of beer in recognition of International Women’s Collaboration Brew Day. Since its inception in 2013, IWCBD has been held to coincide with International Women’s Day, to encourage and support the women’s brewing community by bringing together women of all brewing backgrounds – commercial and homebrewers alike.
Girls Pint Out is a non-profit organization with chapters across the United States, with a focus on building a community of women who love craft beer. Waypost welcomes the Holland chapter of Girls Pint Out on March 9th to create a beer from grain to glass, with head brewer, Hannah Lee. “As a woman brewer, this event is especially close to my heart. It’s great to see more and more women find a space in the craft beer industry, particularly on the production side,” Lee comments.
The 2019 IWCBD theme is Unite Forage, with the focus on locally foraged ingredients. Waypost will partner with a local maple syrup producer to tap trees and collect fresh maple sap, to be used in place of brewing water. Finished syrup will be added to the beer as well, creating a truly unique maple brown ale. The beer will be served at a special release event at Waypost’s tasting room on March 30.
Waypost Brewing Co. is located in Fennville, Michigan. Waypost Brewing Co. specializes in farmhouse style beers and relies on their 58-acre tender fruit farm for ingredients and inspiration to thoughtfully create unique beers. Opened September of 2018, Waypost welcomes families and craft beer drinkers to their tasting room year round.
