Drawing of a side view of a woman all pink she's looking up and her hair is in a bun and there are squiggly lines around a circular area around her and the words International Women's Day


With the World Economic Forum's 2017 Global Gender Gap Report findings telling us that gender parity is over 200 years away, there has never been a more important time to keep motivated and #PressforProgress. And with global activism for women's equality fuelled by movements like #MeToo, #TimesUp and more there is a strong global momentum striving for gender parity. There's a very strong and growing global movement of advocacy, activism and support. Now, more than ever, there's a strong call-to-action to press forward and to motivate and unite friends, colleagues and whole communities to think, act and be gender inclusive. International Women's Day is not country, group or organization specific. The day belongs to all groups collectively everywhere. So together, let's all be tenacious in accelerating gender parity. Collectively, let's all Press for Progress!

International Women's Day Fundraiser

215 N 4th Street.
To benefit and support the amazing non-profit YWCA Columbus, our taproom will be hosting a public fundraiser and tapping party for a very special beer: Ladies Who Brunch! Ladies Who Brunch beer  was conceptualized and brewed by a female-led team of WRB staff, premiering in bottles to celebrate International Women's Day! A portion of proceeds from draft and bottles sales will be donated to YWCA Columbus, who's aim is to eliminate racism and empower women in our community. Ladies Who Brunch is also a celebration of the women of craft beer. Raise a glass and cheers to all the bold women who brew, sell, serve, drink and share beer! This brew is a twist on our popular All the Breakfast infusion, adding darker malts to create an imperial-style breakfast ale. The same fun ingredients were used to create the infusion, including Ohio maple syrup, orange peel, cinnamon, coffee, cacao nibs, vanilla and toasted coconut! Bombers available first come first serve in the taproom beginning at 3pm.
