Denver Brewers Create Anti-Trump, ‘Pussy Riot’ Beer for Inauguration Day

President-elect Donald Trump’s controversial and sexist remarks, such as his vulgar comments about women from 2005, have awakened a feminist revolution in the United States.

Six female brewers in Colorado have joined forces at Goldspot Brewing to create “Makin Noise: A Pussy Riot Beer,” a bright red imperial saison aged on strawberry purée, to protest the Trump presidency on Inauguration Day, Jan. 20, Westword reported.

The flavor was chosen by co-creators of the brewing event — Kelissa Hieber, head brewer at Goldspot Brewing, and Bess Dougherty, fellow Denver brewer — because of the stereotypical association between women and fruity beers.

“It will look like a delicate beer, but it will knock you on your ass,” Dougherty told Westword.

Hieber and Dougherty were joined by fellow female brewers Katie Cochrane of Great Divide Brewing; Betsy Lay of Lady Justice Brewing; Alyssa Hoberer of Dry Dock Brewing; and Jess Anderson of 3 Freaks Brewing.

The beer, which will also be brewed at Lady Justice, 3 Freaks, and Black Sky, will be available on tap at the four breweries on Inauguration Day. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to local charities.

The purpose of this beer, according to a post from a private Facebook group, is to “combat the hate and oppression while also lending support and solidarity to the fight for equality.”

“We are standing up for each other,” Hieber told Westword. “That’s what this is about. We need to.”
