About Collaboration Brew Day
Pink Boots Collaboration Brew Day® was born from our members’ desire to take part in International Women’s Day (IWD) on March 8th by raising the profile of women’s roles in the beer industry. Chapters and members of Pink Boots Society get together along with supporting breweries and individuals, put on their pink boots, and brew their chosen beer style. Pink Boots Society splits proceeds from sales of this collaboration brew with participating chapters. The revenue is applied to educational scholarships and programming for its members.
About the Yakima Chief Hop Blend
Yakima Chief Hops donates $3 from every pound sold to Pink Boots Society for education and programming. YCH recently presented Pink Boots with a $124,296 check from proceeds from the sale of last year’s 4th annual hop blend. These funds are used to support our future scholarship efforts.
