Pink Boots Beer Release
Pink Boots & International Women’s Day
Pink Boots Collaboration Brew Day was born from the members’ desire to take part in International Women’s Day (IWD) March 8th by raising the profile of women’s roles in the beer industry. Chapters and members of Pink Boots Society get together along with supporting breweries and individuals, put on their pink boots and brew their chosen beer style. Pink Boots Society splits proceeds from sales of this collaboration brew with participating chapters. The revenue is applied to educational scholarships and programming for its members.
In 2018 the Pink Boots Society forged a partnership with Yakima Chief Hops (YCH) to make an exclusive Pink Boots Collaboration Brew Day hops blend available. Each year members create a new blend during the hops rub at their annual fall GABF meeting
The ladies at JWB have gotten their inspiration by JEM and The Holograms, an animated TV series released in the mid 80’s that was created to boost positive heroines for young teenage girls and have dubbed this session IPA, Showtime.
This year’s Pink Boots Blend consists of a well-rounded mix of Pacific Northwestern hop varieties, including Loral®, Mosaic®, Simcoe®, Sabro™, and Glacier. The combination creates a high aroma hop blend that contributes citrus, earthy and fruity aroma and flavor characteristics to beers.
Showtime NEIPA will be available in both draught and 16oz 4pks to go.
