OC Pink Boots Society Pink Boots Brew, 2018

This past Friday, Unite, a Belgium Tripel Pink Boots Brew created by the OC Pink Boots Society Chapter was released at Anaheim Brewery.  Brewed in collaboration with several OC Pink Boots Society members, the beer was brewed to celebrate International Women's Day.  A portion of the proceeds from the beer will go to the Pink Boots Society as well as a local non-profit the Orange County Family Justice Center Foundation.  

For this year's Pink Boots Brew beer, members were able to select any style of beer, and were encouraged to use a new custom Pink Boots Blend of hops created specifically for the Pink Boots Society by YCH Hops.  I think it is so rad that a special blend of hops was created specifically for the Pink Boots Society.  A portion of the proceeds from the sales of the special Pink Boots Blend of hops will be donated to the scholarship funds of the Pink Boots Society.  

For those unfamiliar with the Pink Boots Society, it is an organization for women who are either currently employed in the beer industry or who have had at least 15 years of experience prior to returning as well as women who are in the process of opening a brewery, brew pub, taproom, or other beer establishment along with women who are enrolled in a beer education program.  The Pink Boots Society helps women by having a professional association that offers both a means for collaboration as well as education.  The Pink Boots Society offers scholarships to help women brewers further their knowledge and expertise in the beer industry.

For this year's Pink Boots Brew, women from around the United States and world at over 230 (!!) breweries collaborated to brew a beer on or around March 8th, International Women's Day.  It's so amazing to see women brewing beer together as well as enjoying the final product of their work for the Pink Boots Brew.
