Drakes Pink Boots Saison


Brewed by Drakes Brewing Company
San Leandro, California USA
Style: Saison | Ratings: 7 | Alcohol: 6%
The Pink Boots Saison is our rendition of a classic Belgian Farmhouse Ale with a California edge. Made with California grown 2-row barley and malted white wheat and hopped with traditional European hops and a hint of Citra hops from the Yakima Valley, Wash. for a modern American touch. The beer is then fermented with a Belgian Saison yeast strain that imparts the classic aromas of banana, spice. Light, crisp and juicy this beer is everything you expect from a great Saison with a mild hoppy edge and pleasantly dry finish. All the proceeds from the sales of this beer will go toward the Pink Boots Society Scholarship Fund. The Pink Boots Society is a non-profit organization created to inspire, encourage and empower women to advance their careers in the Beer Industry through networking and education.
