Think Ales, stouts, pilsners and lagers are only for men? Think again! Beer is for women too!
Maureen Basenberg, the founder of Arizona Girls Pint Out , meets with a group monthly at different craft beer destinations throughout the Valley.
The goal? To get women together to learn about and enjoy the many different beers this world has to offer.
Basenberg said events by AZ Girls’ Pint Out are relaxed and informative.
If you’re not sure what types of beer you like or what flavors are right for you, she said these events are your perfect opportunity to ask questions.
The only female brewer in the state, Megan Osborne, will speak with the group about her perspective on brewing and there will be a tasting and tour.

Here are some great tips for learning about beer, from Basenberg:
1. Keep an open mind: Craft beer is available in a huge variety of styles and with lots of different flavors and ingredients. You can find everything from peaches and honey to chocolate and raspberry.
2. Be true to yourself: Just like food, everyone has a different palate. Ask around for some suggestions but realize not all styles are for all women.
3. Lean on your local brewery: Local breweries are happy to help you learn what you like by talking with you about their beers. Many offer tasters of their beer. It’s a low commitment way to learn more.
4. Gather up the gals: Instead of a wine party, pick out 4 or 5 interesting looking beer bottles to share with friends. Add some excellent cheese and chocolate and it’s guaranteed to be a great night.
