PENTICTON, BC – Tin Whistle Brewing has announced the release of a new beer “brewed by women, in support of women!”
Pink Boots Hazy Pale Ale (5.4% abv) is a “juicy, smooth, tropical hazy pale ale” with the following back-story:
Did you know there are no women brewers in Penticton, B.C. – Canada’s unofficial beer capital? What are we going to do about it? Inspire the next generation! We invited 3 local high-school science students to join brew day.
“If we want to bring more women into beer we need to expose them to this incredible industry,” says Tin Whistle’s co-owner Alexis Esseltine. “When I grew up in rural Ontario I was a high school science nerd, but all I knew of science careers were the traditional nurse and doctor roles. Here we are in an industry full of science from yeast biology through to alcohol chemistry, and we need young women to know there is an incredible career for them here.”
Pink Boots Hazy Pale Ale will be officially launching tomorrow (March 15th), and will be available at the Tin Whistle retail store and select beer retailers in the Okanagan region. Partial proceeds will go to support the Pink Boots Society Canada.
