Local women are killing it behind the bar, between the brewery tanks, and as the owners of our favorite watering holes.  In a male-dominated industry, these women add to the conversation with their experience and passion for what they do and how they do it. 

Local Fort Wayne Artist, Kara Doak, will open the floor for conversation with women that are in the industry either as brewers, bar owners, bartenders, and management to our staple establishments in town and a few guests from our region. These women will describe and answer questions about what it takes and how they have helped changed the landscape in their space and systematically in our community, highlighting the struggles and successes of women working in a male-dominated industry. Audience questions will be incorporated in her Vol. 2 of “Gurls Who Drink Beer” zine. 

Those who attend the event will get a copy of the first volume of the zine and a chance to preorder the second volume.

Audience is encouraged to stay after to mingle with our panel guests.  The bar will be open, but the kitchen will be closed for this private event.
