Standing Stone Brewing Co (101 Oak St, Ashland) will host the regional kickoff gathering of "Women Enjoying Beer" on Thursday, February 11 from 7-9 pm. This event is for women only, and focuses on helping females learn more about the many different aspects of beer, while have fun doing. "Women Enjoying Beer" will be held on a regular basis, providing participants with a chance to try new beers and deepen their knowledge and appreciation in a relaxed, social setting.
This unique concept is the brainchild of Ginger Johnson, a beer enthusiast, industry specialist and consultant who organizes events and helps breweries develop and serve their female consumer base on a national level.
Johnson will lead a tasting of 4 beers, facilitate a discussion about qualities and flavors, describe the beer making process and the factors that contribute to a beer's overall taste experience, and answer questions. The gathering is designed to be an informal, fun opportunity to meet other women interested in exploring the world of beer. The event costs $10 per person.
Interested attendees can call Ginger at 515-450-7757 to sign up, or get more information.
