8 Beer Events Brewing in Milwaukee This Week: Feb. 8-11

One of the big highlights this week is the creation of Like A Girl IPA at Third Space Brewing.

The women brewers at Third Space Brewing and the Pink Boots Society are teaming up to commemorate next month’s International Women’s Day by brewing a beer, of course. The annual brew day takes place on Wednesday at 9 a.m. when the group will craft Like A Girl IPA, a beer that benefits the Wisconsin Chapter of Pink Boots. The IPA will be released on tap and in cans during a party on March 8, which is International Women’s Day, at the Third Space taproom (1505 W. St. Paul Ave.).

Third Space has two women brewers on the payroll. Amy Rohrschneider, who will be providing a malt sensory analysis session at the event, has been brewing for Third Space for 3.5 years. Samantha Danen, Chapter Leader of Wisconsin Pink Boots, has been brewing for 2.5 years.

“The Pink Boots Society was created to empower women beer professionals and help advance their careers in the industry through education. And that’s exactly what this Like A Girl project is all about,” said Danen in a press release from Third Space Brewing. “We bring women together from all over the state to network with one another and to experience first-hand what it’s like to brew beer on a professional level. By doing so, my hope is that days like these are an inspiration for future generations of girls and women, and that doors that have previously felt impossible to get through will open more easily for those to come.”
