3 Sheeps Brews Specialty Women’s Month Beer Crafted By Female Cellar Team Member Kate Thomma

Women’s Beer and Spirits Collective – a unique Women’s Month collaboration of female representatives – continues to grow and brew interest. The midwest collaboration of females in the brewery industry is expanding to include more breweries and, new this year, three spirits companies are on board to support. Spanning the Midwest, with the concentration of support in the Milwaukee-area, this collaboration’s mission is to raise awareness of females in the male-dominated craft beer and spirits industry while raising funds for select nonprofit organizations.

“We are so excited for year three of our women’s month events. We have new faces, new companies, and new partners to execute our goal of bringing women in the industry together and raising money for Sojourner Family Peace Center,” said Julianna Pierandozzi, Sales Representative of 3 Sheeps Brewing Co. and Women’s Month initiative co-founder. “We will have almost 40 unique events throughout the month for people to participate in and support our cause.”

With the goal of raising $10,000, the initiative is an ongoing supporter of Milwaukee-based Sojourner Family Peace Center (familypeacecenter.org), the largest nonprofit provider of domestic violence prevention and intervention services in Wisconsin. This year the female-led crew will also donate a portion of the funds raised to: 

  • Pink Boots Society – aims to assist, inspire and encourage women and non-binary individuals in the fermented/alcoholic beverage industry to advance their careers through education.
  • Safe Harbor Sheboygan – provides services to reach out to those affected by sexual assault and domestic abuse; provide support to those in crisis; and to educate individuals, families and the community, with the tools needed to empower them to live lives free of domestic abuse and sexual assault.

Fundraising opportunities include:

  • Attend and support at an onsite events (see schedule below)
  • Several grocery and liquor stores will display participating breweries’ products with a special Women’s Month Display with QR Code for online donations. 
  • Point-of-purchase donation displays at various bars and restaurants
  • Donations can also be made online at www.familypeacecenter.org/donate.

The support continues to grow from the region’s breweries. The number of breweries has grown from the inaugural five breweries in 2022 to 14 breweries in 2024. New this year, the spirits industry is joining the coalition.
