Taste my beer at Goose Island!

This Wednesday March 25th at 6:30pm, Goose Island Clybourn Brewery and Pub is hosting their monthly Beer Academy Series and in honor of National Women's month, they are featuring Women at the helm of craft.

I've been invited to the event to share some of my homebrews, talk about the beer styles, and my brew club CHAOS where I brew them.

Come out at sample two of my beers French Kiss, a Belgian Saison with lavender and lemon thyme (6% abv) and Raving Banshee a classic Russian Imperial Stout (11% abv). Goose Island will also be featuring other beers by women in the craft beer industry, so there will be many styles to sample... including a special release by Goose Island of their Bourbon Barrel Aged Quad!

Call 312.915.0071 to reserve your spot, space is limited but a block of seats are set aside for Nancy Brew and CHAOS members. Hope to see you there!

Cheers, Nancy

I want to know!

Do you know other women that brew (commercially or at home) or who own/partnership in a brewery? Where are they located? What are their names and their breweries?


  1. Sharing your beer at a brewery sounds both exciting and intimidating.

    There's a fantastic brewery here in Orange County called Barley Forge. A woman named Mary Ann Frericks is one of the co-founders. Everything from the beers to the food to the design of the space is just great. Definitely worth a look.

  2. Oh thank you for the recommendation. I'll be out in California next month, I'll have to try and locate her beer.

    Yes, agreed on sharing home-brews at a brewery, but that's whats so great about Chicago. The craft beer community really embraces the home-brewers, the beer nerds, and the novice. I've been able to share my beer with other commercial brewers and even serve my brews at festivals and other beer events.

    It can feel intimidating for sure, but sometimes the things that make you the most nervous, also have the best rewards!

    I'm looking forward to tonight. Cheers and thanks again for the tip on Barley Forge!
