International Womxn’s Day Brew: Roller Dames IPA
March 9, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 6:00 pm
Earth Rider Brewery in Superior is hosting a unique educational experience on March 9 to commemorate International Women’s Day. Womxn beer professionals and beer enthusiasts are invited to participate in a special brew day.
Earth Rider Lead Brewer Allyson Rolph will lead the brew. Rolph says the intention is to provide an environment that is inclusive and inviting, where it’s safe for those not well represented in the brewing industry to ask questions.
“I am hoping by creating a welcoming environment we can bring more diversity into craft beer,” says Rolph. “I don’t expect everyone attending to become brewers, but I am hoping to foster interests, passions, hobbies and curiosities.”
The brew day is a collaborative effort that includes members of the Barley’s Angels Duluth-Superior women’s beer education group as well as members of the Harbor City Roller Derby team.
The Roller Dames IPA will eventually benefit the Twin Ports’ and Northern Minnesota’s original women’s flat track roller derby league. “I’m happy we are able to sponsor and support a diverse and empowering group like the Harbor City Roller Derby team with a portion of the sales of this beer,” says Rolph.
The beer will feature a special Yakima Chief Hops “Pink Boots Blend” (Loral, Glacier, Mosaic, Simcoe, Sabro). The purchase of these hops supports the Pink Boots Society Scholarship Fund, which provides female beer-industry professionals with educational opportunities to advance their careers.
The brew day will take place from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Participants can stop in during that time or stay for the whole day. Closed-toe shoes and long pants are required for safety.
