This afternoon brewers from Great Storm Brewery are getting together with a few members of Brewers Broads, a local women’s beer club, to brew a collaboration beer. The women’s beer club has been meeting monthly for educational events since they were first founded in March, but this will be the first time they are brewing together on a commercial system.
The opportunity came when Jeff of Great Storm Brewery offered to make a beer to sell at both Brewer’s Republic and Great Storm. Wanting to make something fitting for summer, they decided on a Wit and are looking at splitting the batch in half for two variations.
Brewers Broads’ mission is to make brewing and brewing education more accessible for women, and a big part of this is through hands on experience. After learning about malt, yeast, and water the Broads are very excited to put what they have learned to use. Many of the Brewers Broads are homebrewers, and having the chance to brew on another system is always welcomed. Any ladies in town are welcome to join the brewing process that starts at 11am and is likely to last a few hours. Look for tasty pints of this beer coming to a tap room near you in then next month.
Great Storm is located at: 204 Mt View Ln #3 Colorado Springs, CO 80907
