The Love of Beer at Sarasota Brewing Company

sarasotabrewingSarasota SmartyPints, Florida

An email reminder about our meeting for February: Burgers, Brewing and “The Love of Beer!

SmartyPints, our February Movie Night Tradition continues! This year, we have selected to watch the 2011 documentary “The Love of Beer“. In the words of Producer Alison Grayson – “When someone thinks of a brewer, they probably don’t picture a petite woman with red pigtails. But with Tonya Cornett’s amazing beers and growing collection of medals, things may change. From farm to consumption, women are fighting their way to become some of the most influential people in the craft beer world. Based in the Pacific NW, “The Love of Beer” follows these inspirational women as they struggle to end stereotypes, handle their rising fame, and raise families in a 21 and over lifestyle. They’re not doing it for feminism or equality—they’re doing it for the love of beer.”

About Barley’s Angels Colorado chapter:

The chapter hosts two meetings each month, one in Denver and one in Boulder. The Denver meetings typically take place the fourth Monday of each month, and the Boulder meetings typically take place the fourth Wednesday of each month. Meetings are designed to be roaming meetings, going to a different location each time, so that members can experience a wide variety of craft beers — and taprooms — that are available to brew fans in Colorado.

Each meeting includes a set of 3 – 4 beer tasters (4 or 5 oz. each) paired with a food taster to match. There will also be a presenter and a discussion at each meeting. Over time, if there’s interest, other activities such as beer dinners, brewery tours or outdoor activities like bike rides paired with brewery stops, will be developed.
