Brewing beer isn’t always about simply making something tasty (although that’s usually the main goal). It’s an art, and in making art, we’re often inspired by the people in our lives. Originally brewed fora beer festival whose proceeds support breast cancer research, this beer is named for a breast cancer survivor – ViolettaIris Dirkmaat, the mother-in-law of our Sr. Manager of Brewing & Innovation Steve Gonzalez. It’s pleasantly sweet (like her!) with an unexpected combination of orange and raspberry, and a lesser-known New Zealand hop variety called Moutere. Raise a glass of this rose-colored beer to the strength of survivors, and Violetta’s motto: Volharden.
