The Pink Boots Society was created to assist, inspire, and encourage women beer industry professionals to advance their careers through education. The organization worked together to create a beer. The group wanted to get together to take part in International Women’s Day to raise the profile of women’s roles in the beer industry.
The beer is called These Boots are Made for Hopping IPA. It is 6 % ABV and 30 IBU. On average a normal IPA has a bitterness rating between 40 and 60. So this beer is not too hoppy at all. It is very light.
The beer is brewed and packaged by Bombshell which is North Carolina’s first female-owned brewery. We were able to get a four-pack at Bond Brothers Beer Company in downtown Cary.
