What it’s all about
For the first time ever in Atlantic Canada, Good Robot Brewing Company is hosting a beer festival highlighting beer made by women! Brewster Fest | Celebrating Women in Beer takes place at the Mayflower Curling Club in Halifax on April 27th, the beginning of Nova Scotia Craft Beer Week, and will showcase only beers brewed by women in Atlantic Canada.
To pull this unique festival off, Good Robot Brewing Company and FemmeBot, an internal brand which celebrates women in the beer industry, challenged breweries around Atlantic Canada to create beers with their women identified staff and brewers. Thus far, 15+ Atlantic breweries, many of which are owned by women, have collaborated with woman identified staff members and have signed up to participate. “There aren’t very many of us (brewsters) currently, and I think that’s wicked silly,” says Kelly Costello, brewer at Good Robot. “It feels good to highlight the hard work of women in this industry and provide a platform of invitation to other women.”
Join Good Robot and other breweries in challenging the Nova Scotian beer industry to be a safe and inviting place for everyone on April 27th. Two sessions – an afternoon and an evening – will be taking place at the Mayflower Curling Club (3000 Monaghan Drive in Halifax). Tickets are available now via TicketHalifax.com. Tickets include 8 x 5-ounce samples. All beer served is brewed by women. All genders and identities are welcome to participate in the event.
Two Sessions: Sat Apr 27 at 1–4pm and 7–10pm
