Ever heard of “Tucson Girls’ Pint Out”? It’s a local all-female organization that, according to its website, “promotes solidarity between beer drinkers of the fairer sex.” Through monthly events like field trips, drives and meet-ups—quite often, obviously, at bars and pubs—this group aims not only to unite women who already love beer, but to initiate future female brew connoisseurs.
“Boys” are allowed at Girls’ Pint Out events… but only “on chains and when dining al fresco.”
This group’s mission? “To increase women’s knowledge of beer through collaboration with fellow females, and introduce the uninitiated to superior suds.” Actually, GPO wants to “reclaim our supremacy” over the beer lifestyle, pointing out that females were the first brewers in ancient Sumeria. (We didn’t know that!)
So is GPO a bunch of radical feminists or just some cool chicks who love beer? If you don’t know yet, you decide when you come to their three-year anniversary party
, where members (and initiates) will be getting together for one of the most ladylike types of gatherings—a brunch—and making it boozy.
This Sunday from 10 a.m. to noon—if you’re a girl, that is—come to Tap + Bottle and get girly over delicious eats from the Chef's Kitchen omelet bar, with beer on tap, naturally: A special-collaboration mole stout by GPO and Ten Fifty-Five Brewing Company will be flowing, as will taps from Historic Brewing Company and New Belgium Brewing.
Bring bras to donate to Sister Jose Women’s Center—because girls are generous like that.
Tap + Bottle is at 403 N. Sixth Ave., St. 135. Visit thetapandbottle.com for details and to check out the calendar.
Tap + Bottle is having a ladies’ night!? Nope, wait—it’s more like a “ladies’ late morning.”
