Pike Brewing Celebrates Women In Beer with the Release of Rose Ann West Coast Amber

In honor of Women’s History Month, Seattle’s Pike Brewing has released a beer to honor its late co-founder, Rose Ann Finkel. The new Rose Ann West Coast Amber is available on draft and in 16-ounce cans.

This new beer focuses on celebrating the invaluable contributions of women to the world of craft brewing, highlighting their creativity, expertise and passion within an industry historically dominated by men, but now sees many more women in the industry. The release will be highlighted when Pike Brewing hosts its Women In Beer on Thursday, March 21, 2024.

Pike’s Rose Ann West Coast Amber is crafted with notes of caramel and rye from the malt, as well as piney, tropical and citrus notes from the hops crafted by Pike’s Head Brewer, Leslie Shore. The West Coast Amber features a warm, copper glow with a medium body, slight dry finish and a hop aroma that balances the depth of the grain, clocking in at 5.5% ABV and 35 IBUs.

Grains for the beer were bred from WSU’s Barley Breeding Program, farmed and harvested on the Palouse, reinforcing Pike’s commitment to supporting WSU’s Beer Brewing Program through the Rose Ann Finkel Foundation. The release will be available in draft and cans at Pike locations as well as at select retail and bar locations across the Puget Sound throughout March.

“I am thrilled to see the recognition and celebration of women’s contributions to the craft beer world,” said Charles Finkel, co-founder of Pike Brewing. “Women in Beer is not only a delicious brew but also a symbol of our commitment to honoring diversity and fostering inclusivity in our industry. This release is especially touching for me as it honors the legacy of my late wife, Rose Ann, who was not only my partner in life but also a trailblazer in the craft beer community.”

On Thursday, March 21, Pike Brewing will host its annual Women In Beer event, presented by CougsFirst, at its flagship downtown Pike Pub location. Proceeds from the event as well as a portion of proceeds from beer sales throughout the month of March will once again benefit the Rose Ann Finkel Diversity in Brewing Scholarship as well as Pink Boots Society. The scholarship supports the upcoming Brewery Certificate Program at Washington State University’s Viticulture and Enology program, set to launch in 2024.

This year’s Women in Beer event is going to be an interactive tasting experience filled with food, drinks & other forward-thinking businesses that are leading the charge to accelerate diversity and equality throughout industries across the Northwest and beyond. Other featured beverage makers include Yonder Cider, Reuben’s Brews, Stoup Brewing, Chuckanut Brewery, BroVo Spirits, and Fast Penny Spirits.,
