Women from the Buffalo chapter of The Pink Boots Society from Woodcock Brothers Brewing Company, New York Beer Project, Rusty Nickel Brewing, Pressure Drop, Community Beer Works, 42 North Brewing, Gene McCarthy’s/Old First Ward, Clarksburg Cider, BTR Brews, Live Edge Brewing Company, and Tap That Tap Room all came together along with Woodcock Brothers brewers, on International Women’s Day, to brew a Session IPA.
The Pink Boots Society is a non-profit organization with international membership which supports women working in the brewing profession, especially in creating craft beer. It was created to assist, inspire, and encourage women and non-binary individuals in the fermented/alcoholic beverage industry through education.
The session IPA is Pink Boots Buf Roots. It was brewed with the 2023 Pink Boots Society hop blend from Yakima Chief Hops. This brew is an easy drinking citrusy and tropical IPA with big notes of tangerines and clementines.
This 2023 Collaboration Brew will be released on Saturday, April 22 at 2pm at Woodcock Brothers Brewing Company’s location at The Wurlitzer Building in North Tonawanda. The beer will be available on draft at Woodcock Brothers and in 16oz. 4-pack cans to-go. You will also start seeing it popping up locally in some of your favorite taprooms and beer stores.
