BREVARD, N.C. — In honor of International Women’s Day, CANarchy Craft Brewery Collective members are celebrating women who drink beer, brew beer and contribute their talents to the craft beer industry. Here are our upcoming events and features:
Perrin Brewing Company will brew a beer today in collaboration with Fermenta, a non-profit initiated by Michigan women that is committed to diversity, camaraderie, networking and education within the craft beverage industry. The beer is a loose tea-inspired brew with hints of ginger, lavender and honey. Crafted with a Belgian yeast strain and experimental hops, the result is a light, flavorful Witbier for a springtime release. Dubbed “Renaissance Woman,” the brew will be released on draft and in 6-packs of 12oz cans in the Perrin Pub on April 11.
Oskar Blues Brewery’s Brevard, North Carolina, location will host an International Women’s Day Celebration today in the Tasty Weasel Taproom, complete with the release of Gose Before Bros, a dry-hopped Gose brewed with coriander and sea salt smoked on Chardonnay barrels, which was brewed by an all-female Oskar Blues team in collaboration with the Pink Books Society. Gose Before Bros will also be available at the 2019 Biere de Femme Festival. You can also read interviews with Oskar Blues’ production women in Brevard, North Carolina, Austin, Texas, and Longmont, Colorado.
On March 13, Cigar City Brewing Company will participate in the FemAle Festival, taking place at Pegasus Park in Hallandale Beach, Florida. The FemAle Festival is a celebration of beer open to all beer lovers, that highlights female beer experts and brewsters. Cigar City Brewing representatives will be there presenting CCB’s award-winning beers.
Please raise a can with us today in recognition of the hard-working women of the craft beer industry.
