Anti-Trump beer created by female brewers

Six female brewers in Denver, Colorado, have created an anti-Trump beer ahead of Trump being sworn in as the 45th President of the United States.

Named ‘Makin Noise: A Pussy Riot Beer’ after the Russian protest group and punk band Pussy Riot, the first batch was brewed on 28 December, with further batches being made over the coming weeks.

On 20 January, the day of President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration, all the breweries involved will tap the beer. A portion of the profits will be donated to local charities.

The brewers are Kelissa Hieber from Goldspot Brewing, Bess Douherty from Wynkoop Brewing, Katie Cochrane of Great Divide Brewing Betsy Lay from Lady Justice Brewing Alyssa Hoberer of Dry Dock Brewing and Jess Anderson of 3 Freaks Brewing.

They decided to take on the project following the widely sexist, misogynistic and degrading comments Trump has made towards women throughout his political career and his recent presidential campaign.

The beer is an imperial saison, aged on strawberry purée intentionally because of the stereotype of women only enjoying fruity beer. Speaking to Westword, Douherty said: “It will look like a delicate beer, but it will knock you on your ass.

“Was this sparked by Trump’s election? Yes. But in the end, it’s about groups who will be at risk under this administration, groups that are already under attack.”

Hieber added: “We are standing up for each other, that’s what this is about. We need to.”
