Fermenta: Michigan Women’s Craft Collective

A non-profit initiated by Michigan women, committed to diversity, camaraderie, networking, and education within the craft beverage industry.

Fermenta is unique in that it welcomes women involved in all alcoholic craft beverage industries to join. From the beginning, it was important for the group to be inclusive. This is an exciting endeavor because Michigan has an amazing craft beverage industry and a growing number of female participants. The sharing of knowledge and encouragement of communication will unite the state and further strengthen all of the industries.

The organization is filing for a 501 (c) (3) legal status and will direct funds to educational seminars and endeavors for its members. The membership structure is two-tiered, active professionals (women who earn an income from a craft beverage industry) and associate members (women interested in the industry but do not earn an income from the industry).
