Women have been working in the American alcohol industry since before the founding of our country. From brewing early colonial beer to playing important roles in prohibition, they have helped shape this industry and continue to make an impact.
Join us as we raise a glass to this history and hear from present day practitioners. The evening will feature a panel discussion with:
- Emily Bruno and Julie Verratti, founders of Denizen Brewery, Silver Spring, MD
- Carol Stoudt, first female brewmaster in US since prohibition and founder of Stoudt’s Brewery, Lancaster, PA
- Meredith Grelli, co-owner of Wigle Whiskey, Pittsburgh, PA
- Leslie Przybylek, Heinz History Center, Pittsburgh, PA
After the panel, we’ll open up to an interactive reception with tastings and activities to further explore historical tastes, modern craft brews, and more.
Tickets are $40 and include food and drink.
This event is a joint program by the museum's evenings program team and the musuem's Innovative Lives program by the Lemeleson Center for the Study of Invention and Innovation.
