Beer Maven: Beer Education Series for Women
6:00 PM
Kitty Warren Social Club
Fermentana is excited to kick off the second round of Beer Maven in 2019! As Montana’s first-ever female-only beer event series celebrating women and beer, Beer Maven offers women the opportunity to expand and develop their beer knowledge through a variety of exciting beer tastings, unique food pairings, and fun, educational discussions with guest industry speakers at local community establishments.

Our second annual series will be hosted at the newly-opened Kitty Warren in downtown Bozeman during the months of January, February, and March. 10% of proceeds from tickets sales from this event series will be donated back to HAVEN, a Bozeman-based nonprofit which offers support to women and families affected by domestic violence.

Event #1: Basics of Beer
Date: January 15th from 6-9pm
Featured Brewery: Draught Works Brewery
Tickets: $35/person
What to expect: In this two-hour workshop with Fermentana cofounder and Beer Cicerone, Loy Maierhauser, and special guest Katie Seaman from Draught Works in Missoula, we'll hit all the basics of beer - what's in it, how it's made, how to drink it, and how to navigate the overwhelming selection of beer that's available! We'll taste and explore six different beers of varying styles from Draught Works’ varied selection, and you'll walk away with the knowledge and confidence you need for the next time you're out and staring at the tap list.

Event #2: Malt & Beer
Date: February 19th from 6-9pm
Featured Brewery: Bozeman Brewing Company
Tickets: $35/person
What to expect: In this two-hour workshop, Loy and special guest Karl DeJonge from Gallatin Valley Malt will be diving into malt: what it is, why it’s important, how it’s made, and how it affects your beer. You’ll get to know why you might like dark beers more than light beers, why amber colored beers always have a hint of caramel sweetness to them, and much more! For this class, we’ve partnered with Bozeman Brewing Company, and we’ll taste and explore six different beers that help highlight varying malt attributes.

Event #3: Big Beer Pairing Dinner
Date: March 19th from 6-9pm
Tickets: $45/person
What to expect: For this final and less formal workshop, we’ll be pairing big beers - bold, strong beers - with expertly crafted pairings from the head chef at the Kitty Warren. Participants will learn about these bold, strong styles and will experience how food pairings can make a huge difference in tasting and enjoying your beer.

Individual tickets for each event in the series (limited to 35 people each) will be offered to beer drinkers at a price of $35 each for the first two events and $45 for the beer pairing dinner. Tickets include entrance to the event, beer samplers, and light snacks, or, in the case of the beer pairing dinner, small plated foods. A special Beer Maven Pass, which includes entrance to all three events, is also available for $100 each. Only 20 of these special three-event passes are available. Must be 21+ to attend.
