THE BECHDEL BRETT, AMERICAN BRETT ALE, 6.2%
Brewed in collaboration with over twenty women for International Women’s Collaborative Brew Day on March 5th, The Bechdel Brett is an American Brett Ale using a 100% Brettanomyces Claussenii fermentation. Hopped with Calypso and Cascade hops, this beer has bright acidity with citrus flavours and aromatics. Orange pith, lemon, and light pineapple notes are found is this juicy beer.
“Bechdel Brett, named in honour of famed cartoonist Alison Bechdel, creator of Dykes to Watch Out For and Fun Home (adapted into the Tony-award-winning Broadway show). More apt to the beer, she is the namesake of the Bechdel Test, a standard usually applied to films which requires they contain at least two female characters who talk to each other about something besides a man.”
