‘Big Boots to Fill’ Quantock Brewery celebrate International Woman’s Day with new beer release

On March 8th, Cheryl Ford and her Quantock Brewery brew crew will pull on their pink boots and join breweries around the world to mark International Women’s Day. Using the same blend of hops participating breweries led by women will take part in the Pink Boots Society Collaboration event.

The chosen beer styles may be different, but the purpose is the same – to celebrate the profile of women’s roles in the beer industry and raise money for the Pink Boots charity which assists, inspires and encourages women beer professionals through education.

Cheryl Ford, Managing Director and co-founder of Quantock Brewery comments, “Women have been involved in the production and sales of beer for thousands of years and there are so many women who are passionate and knowledgeable about the craft. I’m so proud to run an independent microbrewery and taking part in this year’s Pink Boots Society Collaboration event is a way to celebrate everything we’ve achieved so far. So, here’s to all the incredible women brewsters, owners, sommeliers, sales and marketeers, writers and retailers. Let’s raise a glass to the women shaking up this industry.”

Big Boots to Fill is a double dry hopped pale ale brewed with a special blend of Cashmere, Ahtanum®, Citra® and Loral®hops. Available in 440ml cans, 5.2% ABV it will be available to order on 22 March 2021 from Quantock Brewery website soon –
