The Brew Crew – March 8, 2018. Barkerville Brewing Co. Quesnel, BC.
Pink Boots Brew Day
In Celebration of International Women’s Day
In early January, Barkerville Brewing of Quesnel, BC, sent an open invitation for all female-identified folks to join us at the brewery for a collaboration brew day in support of International Women’s Day and to help raise the profile of women’s roles in the beer industry.
The day was a huge success, filled with hands on experience, knowledge sharing, and plenty of laughs! In the end, we brewed a delicious batch of Hibiscus Pale Ale that we named Hurdy Gurdy, after the tough but entertaining dance troupe of historic Barkerville.
Part proceeds from the sale of each bottle of Hurdy Gurdy Hibiscus Pale Ale will go to support educational scholarships through The Pink Boots Society.
Did you know that Barkerville Brewing is led by women? Over 80% of its employees are female, including the General Manager and Head Brewer.
THE END RESULT
HURDY GURDY HIBISCUS PALE ALE
4.6% 33 IBU
Light and slightly tart, this rose-coloured pale ale is bursting with juicy grapefruit, balanced with a subtle hint of strawberry on the finish. Low in alcohol – yet high in delight – this is the perfect summer patio beverage.
+127148 – 650 mL – $7.39 LDB Retail
