Hops and hopes: Female brewers toast Women’s Day

Elizabeth Bove, of Woodstock, Conn., pours grain into a mash mixture while helping brew a batch of beer on Sunday at Black Pond Brews brewery, in Danielson, Conn. The brewery hosted homebrewers and beer enthusiasts for a Pink Boots Society event in honor of International Women’s Day, which falls on March 8. Thousands of women in the beer business and homebrewers in a number of countries are brewing together around that day as a way to raise the profile of women in a male-dominated industry.
