The ladies from the Northwest Pink Boots Society have recently brewed a new beer that will be sold as a fundraiser for the local chapter. About 10 members got together on September 7th in McMinnville at Heater Allen Brewery and brewed a German style Sticke Alt beer called Heater Allen PBS Sticke Alt.
Heater-Allen PBS Sticke Alt is a German style strong alt that is traditionally made in the fall and the winter, usually released the third Tuesdays of October and January. It is normally darker, stronger and roastier than typical alt.
The Beer will be primarily available in Portland, with one keg in Eugene, one keg in Amity, and one keg in McMinnville. Most of the kegs are going out this week. Currently The Farm Cafe in Portland, The Bier Stein in Eugene, Heater Allen in McMinnville, and The Blue Goat in Amity have kegs. This week Belmont Station and Tin Bucket in Portland, and New Seasons Progress Ridge in Beaverton are all scheduled to receive kegs.
One 6th barrel is being saved for the Pink Boots Society Fundraiser Party that we are planning for December. Date and Location TBA, and there will be fun, raffle tickets and a silent auction, besides great donated beer like this Sticke Alt.
If you desire to get your hands on the bottles of this PBS Sticke Alt, they are only available at Heater Allen Brewery in McMinnville.
The Pink Boots Society is a non-profit group of women beer professionals that raises money for scholarships to go towards women looking to further their beer education. The money raised from the sale of this beer will be donated to the PBS for their scholarship fund. Money raised for Pink Boots Society should be about $1,500.
This beer was brewed on September 7th by a gaggle of PBS members. Malt was donated by Country Malt Group. Hops, yeast and labor were donated by Heater Allen Brewery.
