Southeast Missouri State University will host a “Women in Beer” keynote and panel discussion on Thursday, September 22, from 5-7 p.m. in Glenn Auditorium of Dempster Hall.
“Women in Beer” features four women who are involved in a variety of capacities in the beer industry, and the speakers will share their experiences in the world of craft beer.
“Women and women-identifying individuals have always been essential to the history and survival of beer,” said Southeast Professor Dr. Erin Rae Fluegge. “As such, this event seeks to highlight the continued importance of women in the field and inspire the next generation to explore the possibilities and passions of the craft beer industry.”
The keynote speaker is Julia Herz, executive director of the American Homebrewers Association.
- Natalie Johnson – Director of Brewing for Anheuser-Busch in St. Louis, MO.
- Danielle Snowden – Head Brewer at Earthbound Beer in St. Louis, MO.
- Marika Josephson – Owner and Brew Master of Scratch Brewery in Ava, IL.
Though featuring women-identifying individuals, this event is open to everyone. There is no cost to attend, but registration is required.
“Women in Beer” is hosted by Amanda Camp of the SEMO Craft Brewers Alliance and Dr. Erin Rae Fluegge from the Harrison College of Business & Computing and is sponsored by the Douglas C. Greene Center for Innovation & Entrepreneurship.
