Samuel Adams Taps Into Female Consumers with Ruth Bader Ginsburg IPA
It's a Belgian Brut IPA, called When There Are Nine, a reference to Ginsburg's famous reply to the question about when there will be enough women on the Supreme Court.
The beer – brewed on International Women’s Day was served at the Samuel Adams Boston Brewery at an event hosted with the Pink Boots Society, a national organization that supports women working in the beer industry.
Samuel Adams brewed 20 kegs, the equivalent of about 2,500 beers. What wasn't consumed at the fundraiser will be served at the Tap Room while supplies last, according to the Boston Beer Co., which makes Samuel Adams.
Every year, women at breweries across the country team up to brew special beers in March, Women’s History Month.
"This year, we wanted to pay homage with this beer to the women who inspire us and blaze trails for other women, like R.B.G.," said Samuel Adams brewer Megan Parisi. "We share her passion and hope these collaborations will continue to celebrate women in brewing."
