Grain, hops, yeast, water, and empowerment — those are the ingredients for this year’s SheBrew Festival, hosted Sunday, March 5 at The Redd on Salmon from 12-7 p.m.
The fundraising event is a celebration and opportunity to showcase the work of female-identified beer and cider makers. More than 40 professionals and 10 homebrewers from around the Pacific Northwest will be there sharing their craft beverages with guests and networking with colleagues.
💡 Things to know before you go:
- Attendees of all ages and genders are welcome; games and non-alcoholic beverages make it a great family outing.
- Pre-sale tickets are $30 — or $35 at the door — and include a commemorative SheBrew tasting glass and an annual Human Rights Campaign (HRC) membership. For $60, VIPs also get early entrance, a SheBrew shirt, and 10 raffle tickets.
- Proceeds go to HRC and its fight for equality, as well as Oregon Brew Crew’s mission to educate people about homebrewing and beer appreciation.
🎟️ At the event:
- Use your punch card to sample and vote for the “People’s Choice” homebrew; the winner will collaborate with Madeleine McCarthy, innovation brewmaster with 10 Barrel Brewing Co.
- Two women-owned food carts — Marty’s Sandwich Depot and Hearth & Soul Pizza — will serve delicious bites on site.
- You can also shop from local women vendors including Forge & Fire, Wick Craft Beer Candles, East Coast Vintage, and Sweet Joyness Bakery.
