ATLANTA, Georgia — In honor of International Women’s Day on March 8, the women of Monday Night Brewing brewed a special beer. Lady Marmalade is a grisette-style hazy wheat beer with some Belgian yeast characteristics, balanced by a big orange marmalade aroma and flavor with a slightly bitter finish. Led by brewer Sarah Green, all of the women from Monday Night Brewing had a hand in making it.
“This is the second year the female employees of Monday Night Brewing came together to brew a beer,” said taproom director Carlen Funk. “Craft beer is an industry typically dominated by men, so it’s important for us to come together and support each other.”
A grisette (or “little grey”) was originally brewed to quench the thirst of Belgian miners. Its low alcohol content, light body and dry finish is meant to be refreshing, and that’s what Lady Marmalade does. It’s a perfect compliment to the warm spring days that are coming soon.
Lady Marmalade makes its debut at Monday Night Brewing’s West Midtown location Wednesday, March 8 from 4 until 9 pm. El Guapo will be on hand with a special taco pairing. Plus, Lean In Atlanta will have resources available for those who want to improve their resume, including a LinkedIn expert.
