Cheers to the women who brew, drink, serve and sell craft beer!
Last year, the women of WRB worked together to create and brew Ladies Who Brunch (Imperial Breakfast Stout) to be released on International Women's Day. Our goal was to champion and empower women both within and outside of our brewery. We wanted Ladies Who Brunch to be a fundraising platform to benefit a local Columbus non-profit that supported women in need. This is how we founded our partnership with YWCA Columbus, who received a portion of draft and bottle sales!
Approaching 2019 and year 2 of our International Women's Day brew, we knew we wanted to elevate our efforts. We already planned to re-brew Ladies Who Brunch, but also wanted to get creative and do something new. We finally settled on brewing Protégée, a Table Saison infused with strawberries. We figured: 2 beers, double the proceeds we'd be able to donate to YWCA Columbus (who we are partnering with again)! 50% of draft sales from both beers will be donated, along with 10% of bottle sales.
The inaugural tapping party for both beers will be at 3pm on Friday, March 8th. Members of the YWCA will be here to celebrate and educate guests on what they're all about (they are the largest non-profit housing program for women in the city of Columbus, head to their website to learn more!
Both the Taproom and Hickory Room will be open to the public for the party. In addition to draft, we will also have limited bombers of Ladies Who Brunch available for sale. Stay tuned for more details as the event draws closer!

This beer is our tribute to the trailblazers. Cheers to our female mentors, to the transformers and revolutionaries who paved the way and made possible the opportunities we have today. Ladies Who Brunch 2018 was our trailblazer, the first experiment in celebrating and bringing our own craft beer spin to International Women’s Day. Protégée is following in its footsteps, looking to make the fundraising event on March 8th bigger and better.
