Effervescent Brut IPA was brewed to raise awareness and funds for the Pink Boots Society, a non-profit organization dedicated to educating and advocating for women in the brewing industry.
This year the Pink Boots Society forged a partnership with Yakima Chief Hops to make an exclusive Pink Boots Collaboration hop blend. Each year, Yakima Chief Hops staff and Pink Boots Society members gather around a table filled with hops and go to town. They rub, smell and swim laps in each hop, deciding on which one to use in the recipe for the blend.
The blend for this year consists of a well-rounded mix of Pacific Northwestern hop varieties, including Loral, Mosaic, Simcoe, Sabro and Glacier. These amazing hops combined create a high aroma hop blend that contributes notes of pine, passion fruit and citrus. A perfect compliment to our dry and refreshing brut IPA, Effervescent.
Yakima Chief Hops donates $3 from every pound sold to Pink Boots Society.
About Pink Boots Society
The Pink Boots Society was created to assist, inspire and encourage women in the beer industry – highlighting all of the amazing breweries and beers that are female owned, operated and inspired.
"We are the female movers and shakers in the beer industry. We get the beer brewed and fermented with the highest possible quality. We also own breweries, package the beer, design beers, serve beers, write about beer, and cover just about any aspect of beer, and we are all women. Most importantly, we teach each other what we know through our own seminar programs, and we help each other advance our beer careers by raising money for educational scholarships.”
