NASHVILLE, Tenn.– Nashville-based craft brewery Tennessee Brew Works and Chicago-based Turner Häus Brewery have partnered to celebrate Women’s History Month and the craft brewing community with the release of their collaboration beer, Gazelle Hazy IPA. The Double India Pale Ale honors all of the legendary Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) female athletes both past and present.
Gazelle Hazy IPA is an 8-percent, ABV Double India Pale Ale that utilizes preeminent hops, including Waimea, Strata, Idaho 7, and Cashmere. The IPA is dominated by citrus and tropical fruit notes.
Like all Tennessee Brew Works beers, this label was created by a local artist, Tennessee State University Professor, Sam Dunson. This collaboration between Turner Häus Brewery of Chicago and Tennessee Brew Works pays homage to the legendary HBCU female athletes both past and present. The label depicts Erika Motley, also a track star, and symbolizes the impact HBCU women athletes have made on generations of athletes.
“It’s great to release a beer honoring women HBCU track athletes for women’s history month. Often women, and especially Black women, are not given the spotlight in the beer industry. It’s great to have such a fantastic beer to highlight women of color,” said Blair Turner-Aikens, co-founder Turner Haus Brewery.
The Gazelle Hazy IPA is dropping 11 a.m. this Friday, March 5, at Tennessee Brew Works’ Taproom, 809 Ewing Ave in Nashville, along with limited retailers throughout Tennessee the following week. It will also be released in Chicago at Sip and Savor Hyde Park on March 25.
