Every year in March, Women’s History Month is celebrated around the United States encouraging the study, observance and celebration of the vital role of women in American history and what better way to celebrate than Women Making History with Beer?!

This is hands-on participation in collaboration with the Arbor Brewing Company team for our Women’s History Month Specialty Beer Release in 2022.  Five lucky women will have the opportunity to make history by working side by side with the Arbor Brewing Company team in developing and executing a specialty small batch beer that will be sold in select retail accounts around the state of Michigan and in the Arbor Taprooms in the month of March in honor of Women’s History Month. Part of the proceeds from the sale of this beer will go to Fermenta, a women’s craft collective and non-profit trade group that was initiated by women, committed to education, networking, diversity, and empowerment within the fermented beverage and food industries.
