Girls Pint Out begins Rockford chapter Sept. 17

Staff Report

Girls Pint Out is starting a new chapter in Rockford. Started in Indianapolis in 2010, Girls Pint Out has grown into a national organization of ladies who enjoy good beer.

The inaugural meeting of the Rockford Chapter will be from 6:30 to 8 p.m., Wednesday, Sept. 17, at Prairie Street Brewhouse, 200 Prairie St., Rockford. Women are invited to attend to learn about Girls Pint Out, brainstorm ideas for the Rockford Chapter, and mingle with like-minded women. The Rockford Chapter will be the first in Illinois.

As the tagline states, “We’re gals into grolsch. Ladies into lagers. Angels of ale.” Girls Pint Out promotes solidarity between beer drinkers of the fairer sex through social, charitable and educational events. Events are at breweries, bars and any other place in between where beer is or can be served. Events are as diverse as the chapters that plan them and the ladies who attend them.

There is no membership process and sometimes events are co-ed. There is no secret code to get in the door. It doesn’t matter if you have just ventured into the world of IPAs and stouts, or consider yourself an old craft beer drinking pro. Unless the event information states otherwise, to join Girls Pint Out you merely show up for a pint.
