Stronger and Together

Project Barley in Lomita has a dynamic duo of new beers that celebrate women in the brewing industry, Stronger Hazy IPA & Together Clear IPA. Both are amazing and super yummy!!

Portion of the proceeds goes back to the Pink Boots Society. So get a 4-pack of both.

Bootsy

Eagle Rock Brewery has unveiled their 2022 Pink Boots collaboration. Here is the beers mission statement, “We love collaborating with the ladies of Pink Boots and fiercely support their desire to assist, inspire, and educate women in the fermented/alcoholic beverage industry.”

And here is the beer description, “Bootsy is a West Coast IPA  that is bright and clean, with crispy tropical notes. Coming in at 6.3% ABV, this is the perfect beer to ring in the warmer weather!”

Blazing

Athletic Brewing has a beer named (I want to believe after my favorite team) Trailblazer! And, 100% of the profits will be donated to nonprofit organizations championing women in brewing. And, it uses the Pink Boots hop blend!

Pink in 2022

Hop supplier Yakima Chief Hops , have the details on their custom 5th annual Pink Boots Blend of hops. The blend changes each year, and sales help to fund the Pink Boots Society whose mission is to assist, inspire, and encourage women in the fermented and alcoholic beverage industry. International Women’s Day will be on March 8th, 2022. Expect some great beers later that month.

Here is the mix…

Making Moves

This is a collaboration heavy blog. I really like this aspect of tge craft beer world and brewers do to, so much that they collaborate with people tangentially connected as Deschutes Brewery has with Dovetail Workwear, “a women’s workwear company based in Portland whose mission is to encourage women to enter and succeed in non-traditional occupations. Inviting women from across industries to participate in every aspect of this project in celebration, Deschutes crafted Move Maker, a Cold India Pale Ale with all proceeds benefitting Pink Boots Society who “assist, inspire and encourage women fermented/alcoholic beverage industry professionals to advance their careers through education.”

Featured Reviews – La Brea Stout and Pandora Wakes from Eureka Brewing

Two from Eureka Brewing to dig into today starting with a hazy pale using the Pink Boots hop blend.

Pandora Wakes pours a bright yellow with a top heavy haze to it. Crisp taste with a little watery edge to it. I know that is contradictory but this beer comes across more session/light. Some bitterness up front with a cherry note. Not what I would consider hazy though.

La Brea Stout promises chocolate and coconut. I get some of the former and none of the latter. It pours a nice dark color but no head to it. There is a soft roasty character that I like.
