Picaroons is celebrating International Women’s Day by presenting a “Ladies Love Beer Too” event March 8th at the Crown Plaza Lord Beaverbrook from 6pm to 10pm. Tickets are $30 / person and available at the Picaroons Brewtique with all proceeds going to the Fredericton Arts & Learning Centre.
Mirella Amato, Canada’s first female, and seventh overall Cicerone (beer sommerlier) will lead the beer tasting and discussion on food pairings and history of women and beer. She is one of only ten National Level Beer Judge Certification Program judges in the country and has sat on the jury for multiple national and international beer events. She is also a regular contributor to my favourite magazine.
As per her website, the goal of her sessions is
“not to make beer recommendations based on my taste, but rather to share the tools necessary for each participant to zero in on their own personal favourites. I aim to get people excited about beer and point them in the right direction so that they can confidently continue exploring on their own. I also like to provide the context for each beer, including historical tidbits as well as anecdotes on brands, breweries and styles.”
