Fred’s Blackberry Pale Ale

International Women's Day 2022

We’ve brewed up something very exciting here in Bright.
In honour of International Women’s Day, we’re very proud to release a new beer that’s very special to all of us.
Named in honour of our pioneering founder, the late Fiona ‘Fred’ Reddaway, ‘Fred’s Blackberry Pale Ale’ was developed and created by Madi Cooper, Bright’s Trainee Brewer.
The beer was brewed by the women of Bright Brewery, including Fiona’s mother, Virginia, and three daughters, Tenley, Jaslyn, and Krista.
And with a beautiful, Bright-inspired design by Melbourne artist Lynn Bremner, Fred’s is an all-female production from start to finish.
And just to make it even more special, part-proceeds from every Fred’s sold will go directly to Pink Boots Society Australia to help support and empower women in brewing.
“Honouring Fiona’s legacy is a big part of life at Bright Brewery,” Madi said. “She was the beating heart of the brewery before she passed away, and keeping her legacy alive is important to all of us. Fiona was a champion for women and naming our first International Women’s Day beer after her seemed like the perfect idea.“

Fred’s is an easy drinking pale ale that pours a dusky purple colour thanks to the addition of blackberry puree.

It is available to purchase at Bright Brewery, online here, or at great craft beer retailers around Australia.
