Sawdust City Brewing Releases Brave Noise Pale Ale

GRAVENHURST, ON – Sawdust City Brewing has announced its participation in an international brewing collaboration that aims to “create a safe and discrimination-free beer industry, especially for women, BIPOC, and LGBTQIA+ individuals, through inclusive environments and transparent policies.”

Brave Noise Pale Ale (4.5% abv) has been spearheaded by Brienne Allan, a former employee of Notch Brewing who triggered a #MeToo-style reckoning last year when she opened up her Instragram account to stories of harassment and discrimination experienced by those in the craft beer industry.

Sawdust City describes its version of the beer as follows:

Brave Noise Pale Ale is a straightforward American pale ale. Pouring a hazy yellow, it has aromas of tropical fruit and coconut. With no hops in the boil, there is very little bitterness, while still providing plenty of aroma and flavour. Dry hopped with 2lbs per barrel of equal parts Mosaic & Sabro hops. The 4.5% abv makes for an easy, sessionable ale.

Brave Noise is being brewed by more than 200 breweries around the world, with each brewery including a QR code on the label that links to their Statement of Values or Code of Conduct, and donating the proceeds to an organization that supports the mission of the collaboration.

Brave Noise Pale Ale is available now at the Sawdust City retail store and online shop. Proceeds will be donated to, “the first and largest online and mobile searchable directory of domestic violence programs and shelters in the U.S. and Canada, and a leading source of helpful tools and information for people experiencing and working to end domestic violence.”
