CORNWALL, Ontario – Rurban Brewing has come out with their third annual International Women’s Day brew.
The new beer was unveiled at Rurban on International Women’s Day on Friday, March 8.

For the past three years, Rurban has invited women to come help them brew a special beer to celebrate International Women’s Day. Each year, part of the proceeds go to a local non-profit organization. This year, Counselling and Support Services of SD&G was selected as the beneficiary organization.

This year’s beer was christened Queens of Hop and is described as having hop aromas and flavours of grapefruit rind, mango, ripe melon, and malt flavours of fresh bread, with a sustained, grapefruit rind bitterness that echoes with mango and bread crust.

“We have a lot of fun and it is always for a good cause,” said Cherie Lalonde of Rurban’s International Women’s Day Brew Crew.

Last year, the fundraiser collected $1,200 for the Agapè Centre.
