For the love of beer!

Founded on August 28th, 2013, the mission of the Ladies Craft Beer Society of Ireland is to foster a community of women who appreciate craft beer, highlight the role of women within the industry, and host educational events to disseminate knowledge about beer and brewing.

We host a variety of events ranging from beer dinners, tasting sessions, brewery tours, festival outings, beer education and brewing classes and much more! Our classes and tastings are suitable for a variety of interest and education levels- from experienced beer judge to someone trying their first pint.

Our core ethos is creating and fostering a community of women who are interested and appreciate craft beer at all levels. We are devoted to cultivating a friendly, safe, and welcoming environment and all our events are designed with this in mind.
