Think Pink for October
As many of you may know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This year in an effort to help raise awareness, DB senior brewer April Anderson designed a brew to help you Think Pink. April is all too familiar with the importance of supporting Breast Cancer Awareness – April’s sister was diagnosed with the disease at an early age. When creating the recipe, April had an eye toward making an invigorating beer, one to celebrate life. Pink-A-Boo Wheat is a Cran-Raspberry Ale who’s pink hue, the color associated with October-Breast Cancer Awareness Month, comes from brewing with cranberry and raspberry puree. The touch of fruity tartness makes this a refreshing and lively ale. And the name? In April’s words, “Pink-A-Boo, to help open people’s eyes to breast cancer.”
Pink-A-Boo Wheat is on tap now at Basecamp Brewpub & Meadows and is available in pints and growler fills.
