Looking for a new beer to try?
Local chapters of the Pink Boots Society, a nonprofit that assists and encourages women beer professions to advance their careers through education, recently worked with local breweries to create special brews.
Each brewery came up with a different recipe using YCH Pink Boots Hop Blend. Below are the dates and places that the beers will be released.
Pink Boots Society will receive a portion of proceeds from sales, which it will apply to educational scholarships for its members.
So, go ahead, try something new to support women in the beer world.
This brewery in Woodbury, N.J., brewed a kettle sour called Nevertheless She Brewsisted.
It will be released at 5 p.m. in the tasting room on March 30, with proceeds being donated to Pink Boots Society.
