Bright raises a glass to IWD2023 with annual all-female brew
We’ve brewed up something very exciting here in Bright.
For the second year running, we are proud to introduce a beer brewed by the women of Bright Brewery in honour of International Women’s Day 2023.
This year’s beer – a Feijoa, Orange and Guava IPA – is a beery that’s very special to us.
We gathered all the women of Bright Brewery together at Fred’s Shed – our production brewery – to brew and package this beer which is, once again, named after our pioneering late founder, Fiona ‘Fred’ Reddaway. Fiona’s three daughters – all of whom work at Bright Brewery – were also involved in the brew.
Fred’s F.O.G. IPA is a fresh and fruity IPA with beautifully balanced orange, feijoa, and subtle guava flavours and aromas.
The beer was inspired by our Events Officer Lilly Bannister and the recipe created by our Assistant Brewer Madi Bruce. The striking can design was created once again by Melbourne artist Lynn Bremner.
Part-proceeds from Fred’s F.O.G. IPA will go to Pink Boots Society Australia to help support and empower women in brewing.
Proceeds from last year’s brew allowed us to establish the Fiona ‘Fred’ Reddaway Digital Marketing Scholarship which was awarded to one Pink Boots member to undertake study in Digital Marketing at RMIT in 2023.
“Honouring Fiona is a big part of life at Bright Brewery,” Bright’s Assistant Brewer Madi said. “She was the beating heart of the Brewery and keeping her legacy alive is important to all of us.”
Fred’s F.O.G. IPA was officially launched at Bright Brewery today at a special Fred’s Long Lunch for International Women’s Day 2023.
The beer is now available at the Brewery and all great craft beer stockists.
