Sororitas Hazy Pale Ale – Strange Fellows Brewing Review

The Sororitas Hazy Pale ale was released just prior to International Women’s Day- March 8th and was brewed in mid-February by Carly Hase, an Assistant brewer at Strange Fellows Brewing. Her beer style of choice was a simple but hazy and juicy pale ale, that would allow the aromatic blend of hops ( Atanum, Cashmere, Citra, Loral, and Sabro) to shine through. Due to its International Women’s Day timing, it also seemed right to release it as their second beer in the Helping Hands Project Series. Sororitas means “sisterhood”, and celebrates all champions of women’s rights to live free from violence, discrimination, and slavery; to be educated; to own property; to vote; to work and to earn an equal wage; to bodily integrity and autonomy; and to reproductive rights.

The Helping Hands Project Series is a series created by Strange Fellows and is inspired by their desire to support their own community by doing what they do best – brewing beer – and donating the profits. As of April of this year, $1818 has been raised and will go to the WISH Drop-In Centre Society in Vancouver!
The beer poured a rich golden colour, very hazy and opaque with a huge tropical,(think pineapple, coconut, and melon) punch to it. It has a very balanced taste with enough bitterness and sharpness to keep the sweetness that most hazy’s can have. This created a pleasant mouthfeel of crispness yet creaminess with just a hint of breadiness from the pilsner, wheat, and oats blend. 
It’s hard to find, but if you are one of the lucky ones, you will be rewarding yourself as well as supporting the women in the Vancouver east-end community.
