Unite Expression IWCBD 2016 || 750ml || $15 ea.
Barrel Aged American Wild Ale w/ Hibiscus Petals & Sea Salt
5.7% ABV || 11.5 g/L TA

International Women's Day, March 8th, is also the International Women's Collaboration Brew Day for female brewers, both professional and home. Each year introduces a different brew to encourage collaboration and unity across the globe. The brew for 2016 titled "Unite Expression" was developed to educate, encourage enrichment and to allow all participants to express their individual brewing styles and skill sets.

Our IWCBD Unite Expression wild ale was inspired by the Hawaiian value "Laulima" (many hands working together) incorporating the Hawaiian hibiscus flower petals along with native La Jolla sea salt. Aged in wine barrels for 10 months, it is reminiscent of a Gose style ale with just a hint of salinity and floral essence alongside hints of Brett character & light oak.

The first release in our new cork/cage format, these bottles will be available online and in the tasting room starting this Saturday at 12pm PST. Orders placed online will be available for pickup (proxies allowed) same-day and up to 30 days. Proxies are allowed and must be listed in NOTES section of online shopping cart.

Help us raise awareness for IWCBD and their continued efforts to bring women of beer together! Cheers!
