Young Henrys are celebrating IWD with a limited edition brew created wholly by women

Champagne brunches are a dime a dozen around IWD, but if you’re the kind of woman who prefers barley and hops to bubbles, Aussie brewers Young Henrys have a a new creation to whet your whistle: a tropically-minded New England IPA dubbed Free the NEIPA.

It’s hazy, complex and cut through with citrusy bergamot – which explains that whiff of Earl Grey. Master brewers Carla Daunton and Michelle Hanrahan developed this new take on a classic pale ale as part of the Brewer’s B-side series and called on all the women employees at Young Henrys to have a direct hand in creating the beer - from the brewing, to the design, sales and marketing. 

Ten per cent of sales profits will be donated to Newtown-based women’s charity, Two Good Co. Young Henrys will be officially unveiling Free the NEIPA at a launch event at its Newtown brewery on Friday March 6, and the beer will be pouring there and at venues around the country afterwards, as well as being stocked at selected bottle shops.
