I try to put my spin on beer events and not just copy & paste a press release, but this is important and there is zero need for me to mansplain….
“The Pink Boots Society Los Angeles Chapter is partnering with over 20 breweries across the greater Los Angeles area for 2023 Collaboration Brew Days. Many are taking place on International Women’s Day this Wednesday, March 8 and throughout the month of March in celebration of Women’s History Month.
The international event, led by the Pink Boots Society, is a fundraising event that supports educational scholarships provided to women and non-binary individuals in the alcohol/fermented beverage industry. Each brewery hosts their own brew day on their chosen date and releases a beer to the public with a portion of proceeds donated to the Los Angeles Chapter.
This year, the Los Angeles chapter will also host CollaBrew Fest, its first official beer festival, on Saturday, April 15, 2023 to showcase many of these collaboration beers brewed by women and non-binary individuals in the industry. (I will pass on info about this when it becomes available)
There are currently more than 450 teams worldwide registered for Collaboration Brew Days. Participating breweries in the greater Los Angeles area include: 14 Cannons, Angel City Brewery, Angry Horse Brewery, Beachwood Brewing Long Beach, Burning Bridge Brewing, Common Corners Brewing, Eureka Brewing Company, Frogtown Brewery, Hermosa Brewing Co., Highland Park Brewery, Last Name Brewing, Lawless Brewing Co, Los Angeles Ale Works, Malibu Brewing Company, Native Son LA, Pedals & Pints Brewing Company, Tarantula Hill Brewing Co., Topa Topa Brewing Co., Trademark Brewing Co., and Upshift Brewing.
Most of the breweries will be utilizing a special blend of Loral®, Ekuanot®, and HBC 586 hops purchased from Yakima Chief Hops (sale proceeds are also donated to Pink Boots Society). Admiral Maltings out of Alameda, California also provided malt donations for a select number of brew days across the California region.”
So come April, either hit up their festival or find as many as you can individually.
