Nonprofit brews women's craft beer chapter
A nonprofit dedicated to women and craft beer is inviting women out in Grand Rapids.
Indianapolis-based Girls Pint Out recently announced Grand Rapids as its newest chapter.
The goal of the group is to build a community of women who love craft beer and are actively contributing to the greater craft beer community.
There is also a West Michigan Lakeshore chapter of the organization.
The group offers a forum for discussion through events, social media and blog posts.
Following a launch in 2010, Girls Pint Out now has more than 70 chapters in 35 states and Washington D.C.
There are several other women in craft beverage groups in West Michigan, including Fermenta, a nonprofit trade group for “diversity, camaraderie, networking and education within the craft beverage industry.”
There’s also the Pussy Cat Beer Guild, which meets monthly at HopCat to “discuss and drink quality beer.”
