Penticton’s Cannery Brewing celebrates women with new brew

Cannery Brewing has been working on something special for the upcoming International Women’s Day on Mar. 8.

The brewery took advantage of a special hop blend provided by Yakima Chief Hops to create a limited release hazy IPA named Ceres, after the Roman goddess of agriculture and grain. Yakima Chief Hops offered the blend to be used as a collaboration for the Pink Boots Society Collaboration Brew Day.

“When the hops became available, we thought this would be a great thing for us to do this year. We’ve really expanded our team in the last couple of years, we have a lot of women working in the brewery now,” said Kim Lawton, marketing director with Cannery Brewing. “We thought this would be a really cool way to have all the women of Cannery Brewing be involved and be a part of this.”

Once the beer is launched, a portion of the proceeds will go to the Pink BootsSociety, which helps women achieve success in the beer industry.
