Pink Beer

I read a very interesting article yesterday from Beer Universe on beer and women and how beer is specifically perceived as a man’s thing. Yet, since 2008, the Pink Boots Society, an organization for women in the beer industry, has grown from 24 members to 600+ members. A group of female food technologists in South Africa have developed a pink beer for women called Pink Fantasy.

Now you may know I recently spoke rather fondly¬† of a Granville Brewing beer called False Creek Raspberry Ale. This beer is pink in colour and I can assure you I do not feel less of a man by telling you I absolutely enjoyed it. I don’t believe it’s available right now as it was a seasonal specialty. It had marketing slogans such as, “Do you have the berries to drink pink beer?”
