The Pink Boots Society, an organization formed to inspire and encourage professionals in the fermented and alcoholic beverage industries to advance their careers through education, recently featured Ashley McFarland, AMBA vice president and technical director, in their March newsletter. McFarland became a Pink Boots member back in October when she started with AMBA and is excited to become more engaged with the society.
McFarland noted, “I hope to contribute to this network of professionals my knowledge of barley to inspire members to become more curious about the raw grain that is at the heart of many of their products.” The newsletter shares the rather unconventional path that led Ashley from her family’s dairy farm in northeast Iowa to her role now with AMBA while living near Lake Superior in Duluth, MN. McFarland hopes to become more actively engaged with the Wisconsin chapter and push barley related content to the entire society.
