To commemorate International Women’s Day and Women’s History Month, Maui Brewing Company’s female brewery staff will be raising their profile by participating in Pink Boots Collaboration Brew Day. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of their limited beer, FIERCE, will benefit the Pink Boots Society (“PBS”), whose mission is to assist, inspire and encourage women beer industry professionals to advance their careers through education.
Maui Brewing Company’s female corporate team consists of its Chief Operating Officer, Brewmaster, Brewer, Controller, Marketing Manager, Controls Engineer, Maui/Big Island Market Manager, Northern California Market Manager, and Administrative Assistant. The team will be brewing FIERCE Zwickelpils, a dry-hopped, unfiltered lager recipe developed by Brewer, Dana Fleming.
“Nothing makes me happier than a good German pils,” said Fleming. “Wait… what about an unfiltered, dry-hopped German pils?! Now we’re talking. This year’s Pink Boots hop blend has a floral, spicy and grassy aromatic profile, in line with traditional Pilsner hops, with new school hints of citrus, berry and tropical fruits. Hope you are as excited as we are! Cheers!”
FIERCE will include the 2019 Pink Boots Blend hops from Yakima Chief Hops (“YCH”) who develops and selects a new blend annually during Great American Beer Festival (“GABF”) in partnership with PBS to boost fundraising. YCH donates $3 from every pound of the hops sold to PBS for programming and education.
FIERCE Zwickelpils’ ABV is 5.2% with 40 IBU and will be available for a limited time in draught only exclusively at Maui Brewing Company’s Kihei location beginning the week of April 29th.
