What we're about
The Brew Betties was founded in September 2013 to unite a group of women who enjoy craft beer. Four years later, we have grown to over 40 regular members!
Who We Are
We are a diverse group of women based in the Charlottesville area that are enthusiastic about craft beer and the community it draws. We have members that span from craft beer newbies to award winning homebrewers and craft beer industry professionals. Our only prerequisite is interest in the craft, and commitment to a respectful and fun environment.
What We Do
Our events include member-generated brewing events (both homebrewing and an annual collaboration with Three Notch’d Brewing), tastings/pairing dinners, brewery events and tours, bottle swaps, after work beers, and a breadth of other craft-beer related activities.
You can check out our Past Events to get a better idea of the types of programs our members have put together in the past.
We are adamant about RSVPS for most events and try to always communicate clearly what the RSVP expectation for an event is within the post. Boo to No Shows for any event!
Below is some language we commonly use in event posts and what it means:
OPEN: Event is open for guests to attend (friends, significant others, family members)
CLOSED: Event is for members only
DROP IN/ CASUAL: RSVP's are requested but not required to attend
RSVP Required: Special events, please make any cancellations at least 24 hours before the event
What We Are About
We are committed to furthering our knowledge of craft beer through fun and inclusive programming. We aim to cultivate industry relationships, support local/artisinal producers, and contribute to the craft community in a productive and sustainable manner.
