International Women’s Day: Let’s Celebrate Women in Beer!

International Women’s Day: Let’s Celebrate Women in Beer!

          International Women’s Day is this Sunday! We would like to recognize the day and talk about some amazing events you can attend this Sunday to celebrate women in beer!

 

 

Pink Boots Society Collaboration Brew Day

 

            The Pink Boots Society (PBS) is an organization of women from various roles in the beer industry helping other women advance their careers in beer. The society has many chapters across the world with events, newsletters, and even scholarship programs. Each year the pink boots society creates an exclusive blend of hops, in partnership with Yakima Chief Hops, to be used in collaboration brew day events held on International Women’s Day. This year's blend consists of Azacca, El Dorado, Idaho Gem, and Loral which produce tropical, citrus, and pine notes. Here are some breweries that are hosting events and using the special blend of hops.

 

 

Callister Brewing

 Callister Brewing is a nano-brewery in East Vancouver producing craft beer and sodas. They are hosting a Women’s Brew Day event inviting women interested and involved in brewing at all levels to come and hang out. They will be brewing a Hazy IPA and celebrating women! It is a 19+ event and starts at 10am. Admission is free but you will have to RSVP for the event as space is limited. Check out callisterbrewing.com for more information.

 

Cannery Brewing

 The ladies at Cannery Brewing in Penticton will be releasing a milkshake IPA called Ceres on Sunday, named after the roman goddess of agriculture, grain crops, fertility, and motherly relationships. The beer will be available on tap and in cans in the tap room and select BC liquor stores. If you make it down to the tasting room on Sunday you can also enjoy live music. Tomy from the Carbons will be playing form 6pm to 8pm with no cover charge.

 

Trolley 5 Brewpub

 Your community brewpub on 17th Avenue in Calgary will be hosting a charity brunch event on Sunday. The event will run from 10am until 3pm; $2 from every brunch ordered will be donated to YW Calgary, which provides programs and services to women in need.

 

Kwantlen Polytechnic University and Trading Post Brewing

At their brewery location in Langley, Trading Post Brewing is hosting KPU for a collaboration brew day. KPU offers British Columbia's only brewing diploma and is the only Canadian brewing school recognized by the Master Brewers nonprofit organization and won the title of 2019 Brewery of the Year at the BC Beer Awards. Representatives from Four Winds Brewing Company, Fraser MIlls Fermentation Company, Camp Beer Company, Northpaw Brew Company, and Central City Brewers will be in attendance. This pool of talent should come up with something incredible. 

 

Many other breweries have been holding special brew days to celebrate the Pink Boots Society, utilizing the special blend of hops to create what we expect to be some wonderful beverages. Keep an eye out for beers from Stanley Park Brewing, Coast Mountain Brewing, Banff Ave Brewing Company, Balzac Craft Brewing Company, Citizen Brewing Company, Cold Garden Beverage Company, Last Best Brewing and Distilling, Mill Street Brewpub, Born Colorado Brewing, Banded Peak Brewing, Wild Rose Brewery, Prairie Dog Brewing, and The Establishment Brewing to name a few. So get out there and enjoy some beer in celebration of gender equality and women in beer!
