Unite Pale Ale Tapping Wednesday, April 2nd

Unite Pale Ale Tap Handle DesignLadies and gentlemen, it’s time to tap Unite Pale Ale, the result of International Women’s Collaboration Brew Day!

You can feel good about each pint of Unite Pale Ale, since a portion of the proceeds will go to support the Pink Boots Society, a professional organization for women in the beer business, and to the Orange County Family Justice Center.   The Family Justice Center does amazing work for our community.  Read more on their website:  http://www.anaheimfamilyjusticecenter.org/

International Women’s Collaboration Brew Day was the brainstorm of Sophie de Ronde of Brentwood Brewing Company, Essex, UK.   She came up with the basic recipe for the beer, and encouraged breweries to donate the proceeds to both Pink Boots and to a local charity.

The beer we all brewed is called Unite Pale Ale, and it was formulated such that every brewer could to put her creative personality into her version.  Here’s the recipe:

Unite Pale Ale Collaboration Brew Recipe
4% pale session beer
EBC: 10
IBU: 25
ABV: 4%
Late hop: Cascade (US/UK/NZ/German)

Back on March 8th, Anaheim Brewer Barbara Gerovac was joined by Carolyn Bryant and Caitlyn Beas to brew a batch of Unite Pale Ale.  Carolyn and Caitlyn both bid on the chance to brew the beer, with the proceeds going to the Family Justice Center.

We turn our attention to the Mash Tun.

We looked at Sophie’s recipe and decided to make a Belgian-style pale ale, using coriander as the whirlpool “hop.”

The results are delicious.

Put on your pink boots and join us in the Beer Garden on Wednesday!

Doors open at 5 pm.
