Stanley Park Brewing Releases Raspberry Buckwheat Ale, in support of the Pink Boots Society

On International Women’s Day 2020, the women of Stanley Park Brewing came together to participate in the Pink Boots Collaboration Brew Day. The brew day also included many of the team’s friends and associates; the women who empower them and/or support their personal and professional development. The Pink Boots Society is a non-profit organization of the female movers and shakers in the beer industry. Their mission is to assist, inspire and encourage female beer industry professionals to advance their careers through education.

With the recipe development and brewing process led by Stanley Park Restaurant and Brewpub’s Assistant Brewer, Rachel Young, the all-female team made the Raspberry Buckwheat Ale. The beer itself is an American-style wheat ale with a twist. Switching out the wheat for buckwheat, leads to a nutty flavour which pairs perfectly with the huge addition of raspberries in the fermenter. Raspberry Buckwheat Ale comes in at 4% ABV, and 20 IBU.

Raspberry Buckwheat Ale is currently available online at the Stanley Park Brewstore and on-site at the Brewpub. A portion of the proceeds from the sales of this brew will be donated to Pink Boots Society. To learn more about the Pink Boots Society, please visit:

As beer-crafters, we’re explorers at heart. We are inspired by the wonder of Stanley Park, and honouring our curiosity and seeking out new adventures is what we’ve always been about. From windstorms to daytrips to incredible sunsets best viewed from the beach, every beer we craft is a tasty tribute to Stanley Park and the experiences had within. And just like the park, we craft each one to be an exciting break from the everyday, an experience to be explored and savoured. In 2019, we opened our new Restaurant and Brewpub nestled in the heart of the Park. Situated just steps away from some of the best recreational trails and viewpoints in the city, the revitalized heritage building boasts two large outdoor patios, cozy and bright indoor dining rooms, a casual west coast-inspired menu and a rotating selection innovative beers brewed on-site, under the leadership of brewmaster Thom Riley. Let your taste buds wander as you experience one of the most unique brewpub settings in Canada. Stanley Park Brewing products are also available for sale in retail stores and in many of your favourite pubs and restaurants across British Columbia and Alberta. For more information, please visit
