On International Womens Day, March 8th, women across the world brewed together for the Pink Boots Society’s Big Brew Day, raising the profile of women in the industry and raising the profile of beer to women. The City Star Brewing and Spirit Hound Distillers ladies brewed Calamity Jane, gose inspired ale with pink Himalayan sea salt, coriander and tart cherries at City Star.
In further collaboration the ladies distilled 2 kegs of Calamity Jane at Spirit Hound, producing just under 1 gallon of Calamity Jane Spirit. The finished product weighs in at 90 proof, featuring a floral brandy nose that leads to a taste of roses on the palate. There is hint of malt and long lingering heat finish. Calamity Jane Spirit is a truly one-of-a-kind, delicate spirit and supply is extremely limited.
The fruits of their labor will be unveiled at the Calamity Jane Release Party at Lyons Fork on Thursday, September 1st 5-8pm. The final keg available of Calamity Jane Ale will be on tap. Due to the very limited supply of Calamity Jane Spirit it will only be available for sale at this event with purchase of a tasting ticket, and it is expected to completely sell out that night.
