Erin Hines

Erin Hines is the founder of Bitter Girl Bitters, a female owned and operated brand of hand-crafted, small batch bitters from homegrown and locally sourced ingredients. Born and raised in California, Erin has been a bartender in the Bay Area for two decades; she created her company in 2013, stemming from a longtime hobby of creating bitters. Bitter Girl Bitters uses many ingredients from their own organic garden, where they grow hops, roses, lavender, prickly pears and more.

Erin looks to women across industries to uplift and collaborate with. “I am always looking for opportunities to incorporate female-made products into my projects and events,” says the Hall of Femme honoree. What she most loves about her work is that it connects her to other people. As for what gets her up in the morning? “My 4-year-old,” Erin says.
