Women in Industry: An amazing dinner and craft beer pairing by top Ottawa chefs—03.09.19

By Jordan Duff on March 8, 2019


This Saturday March 9th, Clover Food & Drink and Bicycle Craft Brewery are teaming up to present Women in Industry, an inspiring dinner and craft beer pairing that features a team of Ottawa’s most talented chefs.

Event co-founder and Bicycle co-owner, Laura Behzadi explains how the celebration has grown: “We’re very excited to be partnering with these amazing chefs from Ottawa again this year! This event has grown from a one-off dinner to a true celebration of the community and the hard working women in it.”

2018 participants from L to R: Katie Ardington, Tanya Lennstrom, Natali Harea, Holly Laham, Patricia Larkin, Kat Ferries, Anna March, West de Castro.

Now in its third year, the seven (!) course meal and beer pairing celebrates International Women’s Day by highlighting an incredible group of local talents:

This year the proceeds support the Elizabeth Fry Society of Ottawa, an organization that supports and advocates for local women who are criminalized or may become criminalized.

Every year, Bicycle brews a special beer to commemorate the event, “We will be releasing our annual feminist brew, Freedom Machine Cherry Pale Ale which we brew once a year in celebration of International Women’s Day,” says Behzadi.

“Brewed with piles of dark organic cherries and plenty of flavourful, fruity hops, this is a beer to celebrate with. Expect an amazing cherry colour and flavour, a big double dry hopped aroma and refreshing fruity finish. The perfect beer to raise a glass to you and the women in you life!”

Great food and beer supporting a great cause!

The Women in Industry fundraiser is at Clover Food & Drink (155 Bank St) at 6:30pm on Saturday March 9, 2019. The 7-course beer pairing dinner costs $125 per ticket, with proceeds being donated to the Elizabeth Fry Society of Ottawa. Call 613-680-8803 to make a reservation.
