New E.R.A. Pale Ale -- a beer made by female brewers and other women supporting the Ohio craft beer industry in honor of International Women's Collaboration Brew Day -- is hitting taps throughout Central Ohio this week.

The beer, which is 6 percent alcohol by volume and 45 IBUs, will be released at Phoenix Brewing Co. in Mansfield on Wednesday (April 4), at Lineage Brewing in Columbus on Thursday, Weasel Boy Brewing in Zanesville on Saturday and North High Brewing in Columbus on April 13.

A portion from every pint sold will be donated to the Pink Boots Society for scholarship funds. The Pink Boots Society is a nonprofit that promotes the advancement of women in the brewing industry. Each location also will accept donations of items like toothpaste, deodorant and shampoo for local domestic violence shelters.

"It’s gratifying to see more women involved in the craft beer industry and learning about their journey from another profession," Weasel Boy co-founder and assistant brewer Lori Wince said in a prepared statement. "When I first joined the Pink Boots Society in 2008, there were fewer women in the industry and not many of them were in Ohio. As Ohio’s craft beer offerings grew, so did the number of women I would run into at breweries and Ohio now has women serving in very important positions in the state’s brewing industry. It’s a wonderful time to be a brewer in Ohio."

Women from Weasel Boy, Lineage, Commonhouse Ales, North High, Multiple and Phoenix, along with representatives from the Ohio Craft Brewers Association, Drink Up Columbus, and Brewnettes and Brews, participated in brewing the beer.
