Brewers do not make a whole lot of money, I basically live pay check to pay check in small, over-priced apartment in the Bay Area.
I recently won a scholarship from the Pink Boots Society, an organization to provide educational scholarships to women in the beer industry.
(You can check them out here: https://www.pinkbootssociety.org/)
The scholarship is for Siebel Institute : Concise Course in Brewing Technology
While I am so grateful for getting this awesome opportunity, there is one small thing holding me back from this scholarship and course. I have to pay a deposit to hold my spot by the end of July. I felt a bit strange asking for money from friends and strangers on the internet, especially because it is a deposit and I do get the money back once I complete the course. I have decided that once I pass the class and get our money back, I pledge to donate $1,500 back to the Pink Boots Society. The remaining $500 will go to teaching my "pay it forward" educational beer class. Part of winning is once I am finished, I have to "pay it forward" and demonstrate what I have learned, and share my passion and knowledge of beer with others.
Once I donate to the Society I will give a list of all donors and their respective businesses!
Please help me reach my goal!
Your next pint will be on me!
