Why Vermont's women brewers are organizing to support one another
Live call-in discussion: Women and nonbinary people who work at breweries, distilleries and bars are coming together to support one another. The Vermont chapter of the Pink Boots Society aims to give encouragement and training to people who work in the male-dominated fermentation and alcoholic beverage industries.
A few years ago, Vermonters started a similar group but struggled to get enough participants. This hour, we’ll hear from the new group's leaders on why it's important to have this type of community in Vermont now.
Our guests are:
- Julie Smith, co-leader of the Vermont chapter of the Pink Boots Society and lab manager at Lawson’s Finest Liquids
- Clara Walsh, co-leader of the Vermont chapter of the Pink Boots Society and bartender at Three Penny Taproom in Montpelier
Editor’s note: Lawson’s and Three Penny Taproom are VPR underwriters
Broadcast live at noon on Friday, May 26, 2022.
