Photos: Because It Happened!: Legacy Ale Works, Jax, Hosts Women's Brew Day, March 8


UPDATE, 3/31: THE PINK BOOTS BEER THAT WAS BREWED HERE WILL BE ON TAP AT LEGACY ALE WORKS ON FRIDAY, APRIL 5. PROCEEDS GO TO PINK BOOTS SOCIETY. UPDATE PHOTO BELOW.

March 10, 2019: Craft Beer has taken the annual International Women's Day to a new level with "International Women's Collaboration Brew Day." Across the country on March 8, numerous craft breweries hosted a brew day or released a beer brewed by women. The beer, known as the "Pink Boots Beer," featured a mixture of hops, itself collaborated upon by the Pink Boots Society and hop provider Yakima Chief Hops. The "Pink Boots Blend" included Loral®, Mosaic®, Simcoe®, Sabro™  and Glacier hops. What the brewers decided to do with that blend was up to the brewers! 

Locally, in Jacksonville, Florida, Legacy Ale Works co-owner Liz Jacobs reached out to area women craft beer lovers interested in attending the special brew day. Legacy Ale Works only opened about a month earlier, and Liz was already getting the word out about the Brew Day. She and co-owner husband/brewer Matt had previously brewed a pilot batch of their Pink Boots Beer, a Belgian IPA, and on the morning of March 8, an eager group of ladies assembled ready to begin brewing on the 3.5-barrel system.

The group included several female brewery owners from SJ Brewing (Yulee), Hyperion Brewing (Jacksonville), and brewery-in-planning Azalea City Brewing (Palatka). There was a job for everyone, from milling grain, mashing in, measuring hops, and removing spent grain. The day also featured a brunch catered by local beer-and-food pairing Chef Sarah Copeland of Craft Cuisine Jax. 

The Pink Boots Beer from the Collaboration Brew Day will be ready to pour in early April. This website obtained a sample from the pilot batch previously, and found it to be mostly fruity in flavor, with subtle Belgian yeast notes.

Take a look at the PHOTO ALBUM from this website for more from the Collaboration Brew Day. Even Matt was on hand to make sure that things were going as planned in the brewhouse, and he seemed to enjoy watching the ladies at work. It was a day of camaraderie all in the name of beer! Thanks to Legacy Ale Works for being wonderful hosts! The general consensus was that it was an awesome day! 

Separately, Main & Six Brewing (Jacksonville) had previously brewed a different version of the Pink Boots Beer, a New England Session IPA, which was released on Collaboration Brew Day. Several of the participants at Legacy Ale Works ended the brewing experience by visiting Main & Six in the spirit of the day and to sip a different version. This website had a chance to taste that one the next day. The Session IPA presented a vastly different profile, from the color and haziness to the accentuated fruitiness associated with the style. As Main & Six Brewer/Co-Owner Dennis Espinosa confirmed, there's something very cool about brewing and "seeing what can be done with the same ingredients." 

Very cool, indeed.

Thanks again to Legacy Ale Works for opening the brewery for the collaboration brew day -- no small task after having been open for such a short time. When the beer is tapped, be sure to stop by!

Cheers!
