Ruth Bader Ginsburg Now Has Her Own Beer, Thanks to Sam Adams
Ruth Bader Ginsburg celebrated her 86th birthday last month, and now you can toast the Supreme Court justice with her very own beer. As USA Today reports, Sam Adams has created a beer in honor of the history-making judge and Women's History Month.
The Belgian Brut IPA was brewed on March 8, International Women's Day. It's an annual tradition for female brewers across the country to make special beers each March in celebration of Women's History Month. This year, Sam Adams cooked up When There Are Nine, a beer named after Ginsburg's famous quote about how many female justices she would like to see on the Supreme Court.
Only 20 kegs, or 2500 pints, were brewed of the limited-edition IPA. The beer was served at an event hosted by the Pink Boots Society, a nonprofit that supports women brewers, at the Samuel Adams Boston Brewery on March 29. Whatever beer wasn't poured there will be available at the brewery's Tap Room until it runs out.
While the When There Are Nine beer is only around for a short time, there are plenty of other ways to show your support for the justice once it's tapped out. RBG has inspired jewelry modeled after her iconic dissent collar and a coloring book based on her life.
