Garage Brewing Co. (Temecula, California) has officially announced that it will release Hop ‘N Boots, a limited-edition Red India Pale Lager brewed in collaboration with and support of the Pink Boots Society and women in the brewing industry, on April 19.
Crafted at Garage Brewing Co. by “a group of several women involved in the craft beer industry” on Pink Boots Society’s 2019 Collaboration Brew Day and in conjunction with International Women’s Day, Hop ‘N Boots is a Red India Pale Lager brewed with “Yakima
Chief’s Pink Boots blend featuring Loral, Glacier, Mosaic, Simcoe and Sabro hops.” Coming in at 6% ABV, the “clean, straightforward and super drinkable” Hop ‘N Boots promises to supply its drinker with a sensory experience filled with “tropical fruit and dank notes.”
“Girls rock! How important is it to have women in the craft beer industry? Extremely important,” Laura Ulrich, Pink Boots Society’s president said via email. “We want diversity in our beer and we also want it in our business. We have great palates, amazing beer knowledge and we make some really great beer.”
“I love how we all come from different paths which means we all bring something different to the brewing process,” said Maurine Frey, Garage Brewing Co.’s microbiologist and project lead on Hop ‘N Boots. “Relationships and friendships are formed with people we might not have met.”
Hop ‘N Boots is a draft-only offering that will officially release in Garage Brewing Co.’s brewpub/taproom and at various bars and restaurants throughout Southern California beginning on Friday, April 19. To further support the Pink Boots Society’s mission, Garage Brewing Co. “will donate 50 percent of proceeds of on-premise sales of Hop ‘N Boots to Pink Boots Society. At Garage Brewing’s brewpub in Old Town Temecula, pints of this brew will be specially priced at $5 per pint with 50 percent of proceeds donated to Pink Boots Society.” Prost!
