In honor International Women’s Day three women members of the brew team at Third Space Brewing are collaborating today with the the Pink Boots Society to brew a special beer.
Part of the proceeds from Like A Girl IPA nwill benefit the Pink Boots Wisconsin Chapter to help fund scholarships, educational opportunities and other services to women working in Wisconsin’s beer industry.
At 10 a.m. Monday, the team – Samantha Danen, Amy Rohrschneider and Shaya Leamon – will begin mashing in on the IPA. The Wisconsin chapter leader Steph Smith will also be on hand for the brew day.
Danen, Rohrschneider and Leamon created the Like A Girl IPA recipe, which showcases the citrus, tropical and herbal aromatics of the special 2021 Pink Boots Hop Blend created by Yakima Chief Hops.
Third Space expects to can Like A Girl IPA for a March 26 release.
For last year’s International Women’s Day, Pink Boots collaborated with Black Husky, Company Brewing, Gathering Place Brewing Company and Lakefront Brewery on a fundraising pale ale called "Yes, She Can!"
The Like A Girl project is part of Pink Boots Society’s annual Collaboration Brew Day. Breweries around the country are brewing special beers in honor of International Women’s Day.
