In celebration of International Women’s Day on 8th March 2014 brewsters across the world will brew the same beer recipe in a unique international event.
Unite Pale Ale will be brewed to raise the profile of women in the brewing industry and for women who love to drink beer. The project was conceived by Sophie de Ronde. head brewer of Brentwood Brewing Company in Essex, who recruited members of Project Venus and Pink Boots Society to participate.
Dozens of brewsters in Britain, Australia, Canada, Ireland, Italy, Japan, New Zealand, and the USA (including Stone and Dogfish Head) are all taking part and inviting beer loving women intrigued by the idea of brewing to join them for a sociable brew day. Locations of the participating breweries are shown here: http://bit.ly/1ftjfKO
Several brewing suppliers are donating ingredients, including UK hop merchant Charles Faram and profits from beer sales will be donated to a charity of the brewster’s choice.
