bas_chiChicago Barley’s Angels fundraiser for Breast Cancer Research and Outreach

On Wednesday April 16, starting at 6p.m., Trellis in Lincoln Park will pour Tyranena Citra Session Pale Ale, a beer brewed in collaboration with the Pink Boots Society.Tyranena brewer Andrea McHenry will be on hand.  All proceeds from the beer will go to the Chicago chapter of a breast cancer research and outreach foundation. (Feel free to email with questions! I am happy to let you know who we are donating to, but they preferred to be left off of any marketing materials.)

The Citra Session Pale Ale was based on a recipe given to the women brewer members of the Pink Boots Society, for use on a mass brew day on International Women’s Day. The resulting beer is a bright, hoppy, and clean pale, which was dry hopped by amarillo and citra hops. Tyranana Brewer Andrea McHenry will be there, ready to tell you all about the process, and to raise a pint.

Chief Blackhawk Porter will also grace the taps tonight, and house cocktail queen, Miranda Breedlove will be behind the stick. The food at Trellis is also outstanding, featuring oysters, pizzas, and contemporary tweaks on American standards.

This event is open to the public, so please bring anyone who wants to drink great beer for a good cause. We hope to see you there!
