What is the Pink Boots Beer Style / Recipe for 2019?

This year’s suggested style is… FREESTYLE!

Anything you like – the only recipe suggestion this year is to use our new, custom “Pink Boots Blend” hops from Yakima Chief Hops!

For the 2nd year in a row — we’re teaming up with Yakima Chief Hops to amplify the fundraising power of this year’s collaboration! The Pink Boots Society and Yakima Chief Hops are thrilled to announce the collaboration of an exciting new hop blend to celebrate women in the brewing industry. Each year, a new blend will be chosen during the harvest season by members of the Pink Boots Society. During the 2019 Great American Beer Festival in Denver, Yakima Chief Hops staff and PBS members met to rub, smell and experience a selection of hop samples for the upcoming blend. This year’s blend includes Loral®, Glacier, Mosaic®, Sabro™ and Simcoe®. This exclusive hop blend will be available to commercial brewers. Pre-orders end December 3, 2018.

Pink Boots Blend will be released to commercial brewers prior to International Women’s Day on March 8th and members, participants, and brewers around the world are encouraged to create their own celebratory brews. The blend will be produced in traditional T90 hop pellets with limited availability, and $3 per pound will be donated to the Pink Boots Society Scholarship funds. If we sell through our hops blend, we can DOUBLE the impact Pink Boots Collaboration Brew Day has on our programming!

In addition, this year, Pink Boots is also partnering with White Labs to offer strain suggestions that will work for all your Pink Boots Brew days styles needs, whether you are using the Pink Boots Collaboration Day hops blend, or choosing your own variation. Aside from helping choose the right strain for your collaboration brew, White Labs will be donating a portion of proceeds for every Core Strain yeast sold to the Pink Boots Society. Need some suggestions? Here is what we have to offer:
