4th Annual FemALE Brew Fest Announces Dates for 2021

Fem Collective presents the 4th Annual FemAle Brew Fest on September 18 at the 96-room Kimpton Goodland - Fort Lauderdale Beach from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm. In 2021, the pioneering festival celebrating women in brewing will be taking over a hotel for the first time, providing festival-goers with the opportunity to have a Beercation with an all-inclusive package that includes accommodations and two tickets to the festival (just outside their doors).

The Brew Fest will once again be pet-friendly and donate a portion of proceeds to Abandoned Pet Rescue (APR). In addition, the Kimpton Goodland is pet-friendly and has no restriction on types or size, which means pet owners can bring their fur babies with them to join in on the fun.

To date, the festival has 9 confirmed breweries, with new additions added continuously. As the festival organizer's network continues to grow across the craft beer industry with a position on the national board of the Pink Boots Society, past leadership of the Pink Boots Society (Florida Chapter), Girls Pint Out (Broward Chapter), and the creation of Greater Fort Lauderdale Beer Week. This female-centric beer festival continues to not only highlight the amazing women in brewing but create memorable experiences that last a lifetime for both brewers and attendees alike.
