Grab a Pink Boots Collaboration Brew at Two May Events
Austin’s chapter of Pink Boots Society, a non-profit organization designed to assist, inspire and encourage female beer professionals, had record participation during the annual Pink Boots Collaboration Brew Day, held each year in honor of International Women’s Day. Each beer was brewed using a special hop blend by Yakima Chief Hops featuring Loral, Glacier, Mosaic, Sabro, and Simcoe hops in varying beer styles.
Note: all the beers highlighted here are currently available at the brewery’s taprooms. The events listed below present a special opportunity to try more than one of the Pink Boots collaboration beers.
On Saturday May 4th, come out to Vista Brewing and enjoy Zwickled Pink on tap, along with samples from Hops and Grain, Middleton Brewing, The Brewtorium Brewery & Kitchen and Black Star Co-op Pub & Brewery. Donations will be accepted during the event benefitting our local Pink Boots chapter, which provides educational opportunities to our members.
Event details: Vista Brewing 12-2pm
Sunday May 12th come celebrate Mother’s Day at Easy Tiger at the LINC with Pink Boots Society. Chapter leader Laura Christie will be on site and Easy Tiger will have five Pink Boots Collaboration Brew Day beers on tap, along with a special beer from Real Ale Brewing Company. Real Ale released their PBS brew, Pieces of TX, in March and it’s already gone! So, they are planning to participate in the Mother’s Day event with a barrel-aged sour ale Cherry DeLux.
