Ontario Craft Brewers Launch Scholarship for Women

Bringing more ladies to the beer scene

Beauty, brains, and brew.

The Ontario Craft Brewers have noticed a lack in female brewers across the province. In an effort to support women in the brewing industry, the OCB has announced an exclusive scholarship for women.

The scholarships will enable as many as six women to complete Level 1 courses in the Cicerone Certification Program, an internationally recognized brewing-focused program.

The brewing industry is typically a male-dominated profession. As part of International Women’s Day, the OCB profiled a number of Ontario women in prominent positions in the industry. Check it out here.

If you’re looking to round up gang of brew-loving ladies check out The Society of Beer Drinking Ladies to get acquainted with Toronto’s female brew community.
