Women’s History Month is a yearly reminder that as human beings, our capacity to hope, to fight, to work together, to persevere, to PERSIST, to resist, and to prevail, even and especially in times of uncertainty and strife, is our species’ greatest asset.
The month-long celebration is a chance to acknowledge women’s contributions to history, culture and society and we’re doing that in our favorite way: with bier!
Every year (*not including 2021), 15 women from all over the world gather at Huyghe Brewery in Belgium. As a way to celebrate women in the industry in preparation for International Women’s Day, the group helps brew Deliria. Last year (Pre-pandemic), our very own Chief of Operations/Girl Boss/Beverage Director Extraordinaire, Ileana Rivera, was selected to take part in the special tradition. We are celebrating this month in our Grand Cafés by tapping into the exact Deliria kegs that Ileana helped brew.
Also this month, we are toasting to women through a special partnership with Pink Boots Society. This nationwide nonprofit organization assists, inspires, and encourages women professionals in the fermented/alcoholic beverage industry through education. For every Deliria sold at our Grand Cafés in March, we are donating $1 of proceeds to help fund scholarships for the Pink Boots Society.
Stop by your neighborhood Café Hollander or Café Benelux in the Third Ward any day in March to try Deliria! This Blonde Belgian Strong Ale with spicy, mild hop notes bursts fruity tones of apple and chardonnay grape.
