    The WOTVS Brewers group was created to bring together those members working in the Beer sector. And by Beer, we mean Beer, Craft Beer, FMB’s, Cider, Hard Seltzer and other malt based products.  We know that working in Beer has different challenges and opportunities and so together we want to grow the presence of the Beer Community (suppliers, distributors and retailers) within the WOTVS.
    This is YOUR community to: share stories and insights, spot trends and understand the data, identify obstacles so together we can find solutions, and learn ways to be more effective - all in an effort to make us better and more effective. Now more than ever, there is power in bringing together women - and men who support women - in Beer!

We're all about connecting with each other, learning, and venting about real life. This is your community. Should you have any questions, feel free to reach out to the Group Leads.

    The camaraderie we have seen amongst our Women of the Vine & Spirits Foundation Scholarship recipients since 2017 has been remarkable! We wanted to create a space for Scholarship Recipients and donors to connect and collaborate. Please use this space to continue to share your stories, life experiences, successes and challenges. We want to hear from you when you've accomplished a goal you've set out to achieve and keep everyone updated on how receiving scholarships from the WOTVS Foundation is fueling your passions in this industry.
