3-women-logoI love a good super group. Blind Faith, Traveling Wilburys, New Pornographers… the list goes on. Great musicians getting together to create something awesome.

We have three different groups of women in St. Louis that are all trying to promote women in craft beer. They’ve joined forces to create three events providing not only camaraderie for women, but delicious beer and education as well. Here’s a look at the events:

The OG, Femme Ferment, and Girls Pint Out will kick off their “Biére de Girls” series with an interactive homebrew-style event at O’Fallon Brewery on March 15. This ticketed event will offer women a chance to watch and engage in brewing one of four unique beer styles, from milling to mashing to grain out.

The second event in the series will be a lesson on tasting, beer styles, and food and beer pairings, held at 33 Wine Shop in Lafayette Square on April 6. Beers indicative of the styles brewed at the first event will be featured this evening.

The series wraps up with a happy hour and keep-the-glass tasting event at Heavy Riff Brewing Co. in Dogtown on April 27, where the four homebrews will be featured, along with a line up of other local and national craft beer favorites.

The brew day and educational pairing and tasting event are open to women only, and no prior brewing experience is required. The keep-the-glass night is open to all.

Tickets for individual events or the full series are available through Brown Paper Tickets, linked at each group’s website.

#3tff_dec2014‘Tis the season. The season of getting together with family and friends. The season of getting and most importantly, the season of giving. To celebrate all of these things Femme Ferment has teamed up with Girls Pint Out to put on a special happy hour tomorrow, December 16th from 5PM-8PM at the Schlafly Tap Room.

Not only is this a great time to get together and see some friends for some holiday cheer, but also FF and GPO are using this as an opportunity to help a good cause. This time of year is a great reminder to help those who are less fortunate than some of us.

The happy hour is looking for donations of “winter necessities” including coats, scarves, mittens, hats, women’s deodorant and men’s underwear in larger sizes. All of these items will be benefiting the St. Patrick Center.

Head out tomorrow night, have a couple of beers and help some people out.
