Movers and Shakers: Women Making Waves in Spirits, Beer, and Wine
In her travels across the country, Hope Ewing discovers how women are paving the way and creating a more inclusive and sustainable world full of delicious drinks.
A veteran bartender, Ewing had grown impatient with the surprisingly outdated perceptions of women in the alcohol industry. Entrepreneurial and ambitious, often the first in their fields, the women she knew in the business were leaders, mentors, and trailblazers. In Movers & Shakers, Ewing seeks them out, to share their stories as well as valuable business advice and insight into a constantly evolving industry.
Praise for Movers and Shakers: Women Making Waves in Spirits, Beer, and Wine
"Women have been involved in making alcoholic beverages from the beginning, and Ewing showcases their many roles, including bartender, winemaker, marketer, and, CEO... Will have strong appeal to those interested in women’s work as well as the history and people in the beer, wine, spirit, and bar industries."

"These women are leading the way, machete-ing through the patriarchal jungle so that others can follow. As I read Hope’s book, I kept returning to that essential saying about the first step in any successful journey: You need to see it to be it. Thanks to Hope Ewing, more of us out there will see it."
—Natalka Burian, Owner of the bars ELSA and RAMONA
"It’s a collection of industry advice and tips, it’s a beverage history lesson, and it’s a proudly feminist look at the professional challenges women face. It also includes useful, inspiring personal anecdotes on how these women built their careers, overcame obstacles and continue to fight them—with ideas on how to grow a more inclusive industry, to boot. This isn’t just a cocktail book, it’s a call to action."
