Extra Special Boots is a hazy, orange colored ESB made with this year’s Pink Boots special blend of hops. Crafted by our Co-Founder Annette, along with help from some of our team, this easy drinking English-style ale is smooth up front with flavors of toasted brown bread and fruity caramel malt, finishing with a balanced, lingering hop bitterness.
A portion of the proceeds from this special hop blend benefits the Pink Boots Society scholarship program, which exists to assist, inspire, and encourage women in the fermented beverage industry to advance careers through education. The hops blend is made up of Idaho Gem™, HBC 630, Talus™, Triumph and Loral®. Idaho Gem is a variety developed by a women-run hop farm, Gooding Farms, in Parma, Idaho, making this year’s blend extra special!
Extra Special Boots is also the first beer to be canned in our new Brewer’s Whimsy series, which represents our special “one off”, experimental beers that are borne out of the passion and whimsy and super creative brains of our brew team. With this new label, we hope to be canning more of our small batch / experimental beers, which we know has been a request from many of you for years!
Extra special boots is available starting today – both in cans and on draft. Cheers!
