The Portsmouth Brewery Introduces Beer for Menopausal Women
The Portsmouth Brewery is introducing what they call an 'empowering gruit.' LIBEERATION, is the first craft beer specifically brewed for women experiencing menopausal symptoms.
'LIBEERATION,' is being released on draft on October 5, 2017 with a limited bottle release to follow.
Joanne Francis, who co-owns The Portsmouth Brewery and Smuttynose Brewing Company says her team has come up with ingredients believed to relieve symptoms like sleeplessness, hot flashes, and mood swings.
LIBEERATION is a gruit style ale that’s golden straw in color with fruity, spicy, earthy flavors. According to a write-up on their website: it contains a combination of ingredients herbalists use to help women dealing with hormone shifts that come with age, including: Motherwort, Lemon Balm, Chamomile, Stinging Nettle, Mugwort, Rose, Chickweed, and Damiana. A small dose of Saphir hops in the secondary fermentation adds a pleasant tangerine note to the finish and can help with sleep, according to Head Brewer Matt Gallagher.
