In honor of International Women’s Day on March 8th and the 150th anniversary of Wyoming women’s suffrage—nearly 51 years before the 19th amendment guaranteed the same entitlement to all American women—the women of Jackson Hole’s Roadhouse Brewing Co. and Snake River Brewing, in collaboration with the Wyoming chapter of Pink Boots Society, will join forces to craft a special Equality Brew: a hoppy Belgian witbier, brewed in reverence to and for continued action toward progress.
The collaboration is part of the national Pink Boots Brew Day, which last year garnered 260 participating breweries from 10 countries.
“The Pink Boots collaboration brew day was created to celebrate the female spirit in the craft brewing industry, and we partnered with regional female-owned and managed Gooding Farms to source the hops (Idaho Gem) for the beer and recognize women in our sister industry.”
– Jody Valenta, Roadhouse Brewing Co. President & COO
Brewing will take place at Snake River Brewing on International Women’s Day, Friday, March 8th. Tappings of the collaborative Equality Brew will happen in mid-April at the recently opened Roadhouse Pub & Eatery and at Snake River Brewing, with $1 per pint being donated back to local, female-empowerment non-profit organizations. One organization is Womentum, a non-profit that exists to energize, enrich and encourage the vision, voice and visibility of the women and girls of Wyoming by developing and funding programs that result in social justice.
“Snake River Brewing is once again excited to be part of the annual Pink Boots brew day. We’re very proud of our Wyoming roots and Wyoming’s history of strong women. It’s only natural that when we sought inspiration for the Equality Brew, we looked back to the suffragettes of Wyoming, and turned to collaborate with some of our fellow pioneering females in the brewing industry.”
– Ariel Korber, Marketing Director of Snake River Brewing
