All-Female Brew is Tapped for Craft Beer Week
KREX News Room
GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. - After several weeks of collaboration, an all-female brew team tapped their first batch Monday.
Just in time for the eighth annual American Craft Beer Week, a simultaneous tapping at nine different Colorado locations occurred for the team's Cherry Blossom Saison.
Officials say this is only the second all-female collaboration brew in the state. It's also the first one on the Western Slope.
"The industry has grown by leaps and bounds. More and more women are getting into brewing and it's really exciting because it's such a male-dominated industry," said Emma Faulkner, a brewer with Kannah Creek.
The new beer is available at both Kannah Creek locations and proceeds will go to the Pink Boots Society, a group dedicated to helping female brewers advance in the industry.
