IVANHOE PARK BREWING COMPANY
AMANDA MAILEY | HEAD BREWER & CHAPTER LEADER, PINK BOOTS SOCIETY FL
Amanda, better known as Mailey in the industry, got her start working at Red Cypress Brewery where she worked her way up from bartender to keg washer to Head Brewer.
I always had an interest in learning more about the brewing process and working in production. I eventually got the opportunity to start volunteering in the back as their keg washer. After a few months of cleaning kegs and scrubbing drains, I was finally hired in the brewery full time. From there I worked my way up to assistant brewer and then eventually head brewer.
I am currently the head brewer at Ivanhoe Park Brewing in Orlando. I get to work with a great team and brew all the pilsners I want. I joined the Pink Boots Society in May of 2017. I immediately knew I wanted to become more involved in the organization. I was the Florida Chapter co-leader from 2018-2020 and became the chapter leader in 2021. As the chapter leader, I hope I can continue to provide a safe space and support other women in the industry.
