Second Self Beer Company and New Realm Collaborate on Beer Sufferin’ Til Suffrage
Second Self Beer Company, the craft brewery based in Atlanta, Georgia, will release a collaboration beer with New Realm Brewing this month: Sufferin’ Til Suffrage, a New England double IPA. The beer will be available to purchase and on draft and in cans at Second Self’s Westside taproom and on draft at New Realm’s Poncey-Highland brewery.
Sufferin’ Til Suffrage was created and brewed in support of the Pink Boots Society, an organization dedicated to assisting, inspiring, and encouraging women beer industry professionals to advance their careers through education. Female brewers Zuri Coleman from Second Self and Christine Stevens from New Realm Brewing created the beer, and a portion of proceeds from its sales at both breweries will be donated to benefit the organization’s work.
Sufferin’ Til Suffrage is a New England double IPA, brewed exclusively with the Pink Boots Society’s signature blend of hops. Those hops were reinforced with Second Self’s house Norwegian IPA yeast, creating a stone fruit, tropical, and slightly dank aroma. The beer has a juicy and hazy appearance with a light and soft body, indicative of the New England style of IPAs.
“One of our guiding principles is to support diversity in our community, especially where it concerns the brewing industry,” says Jason Santamaria, co-founder of Second Self. “This collaboration with New Realm Brewing gives us the opportunity to not only work with one of our local friends, but to help the work of the Pink Boots Society, as well.”
