It’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month — in other words, the perfect time for Adelbert’s Brewery to release its limited Whimsical Hibiscus Saison again, this time in bottles.
The bombers are in local stores now; plus, make sure to visit the brewery tomorrow for a special event centered around the brew that will raise money for the Breast Cancer Resource Center of Texas. From 1 to 7 p.m., Adelbert’s will be selling pours of the Hibiscus Saison as well as a commemorative glass (which you can see in the picture at right). Five percent of all the saison sales tomorrow, as well as $3 of every $16 glass sale, will go toward the local breast cancer charity.
With these combined sales, Adelbert’s hopes to make a generous donation to the cause.
Previously on tap back in July as the first beer of the Austin brewery’s Whimsical rotating series, the Hibiscus Saison is a pretty pink-hued beer that was brewed with hibiscus flowers and dry-hopped with Citra hops, imparting it with notes of tropical fruit, citrus and a hint of tartness.
Adelbert’s Sarah Zomper Haney, who had a big hand in brewing the bright pink saison, felt inspired to donate to the breast cancer support organization after noticing the color of the beer. Helping out this cause is especially important to her, she said on the original event’s Facebook page, because her mom is a breast cancer survivor. “I’m so happy to be able to use this beer to give back to such an important cause,” she said.
The bombers of Adelbert’s Whimsical Hibiscus Saison now in stores are sure to go fast, and they’re the only batch of the beer that will be made until mid-2016. You’ve been warned.
Adelbert’s Whimsical Hibiscus Saison Fundraiser, 1 to 7 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 10. Free. 2314 Rutland Dr. Ste. 100. http://www.facebook.com/adelbertsbeer.
