I know that’s a played out pun, but I like Annie Lennox and I love Aretha Franklin, so I’m using it. It’s also the most apt way to headline the beer that Pink Boots Society–an organization with the mission of elevating women in the workforce (and beyond) brews on International Women’s Day. It makes me think back to a quote that Jodie Stoudt, head brewer at Stoudt’s Brewing (and the daughter in law of Carol Stoudt, who was perhaps the first woman to build and own a brewery in the craft era) said to me when I interviewed her in 2006. “Women taste better than men.” She was, of course, referring to women’s analytical skills. So raise a pint to the brewsters in your life, and the ones you wish were in your life because girlz got mad brewing skills.
