Beer Description

Anyone who knows us knows that we’re here for all, and today we’re proud to release a beer for all. Our team and our community are made up of a diverse group who come from different places, backgrounds, and experiences.

We do everything we can to celebrate the individual and to recognize that we’re all better together. As Pride is more than a month or a festival, we release Friends Of Dorothy throughout the year to celebrate beers for all and cheers for all, all year long.

Friends Of Dorothy is a beautifully bright 7.3% abv India Pale Ale. It’s dry-hopped with an eclectic mix of rotating hops to showcase flavors from around the world coming together as one. The original recipe was complemented by South African Southern Passion (our first time using those hops) and potent YCH Amarillo CryoHops. The current batch (released in July 2020) features tropical Azacca (our favorite hops to use, featured in Free Verse) and the prominent pineapple notes provided by BRU-1 hops (only our third time using this variety).

The additional stripes on the can label were added to our standard Pride imagery to highlight a greater inclusivity, with additional black & brown stripes at the top and blue, pink, and white stripes added to the bottom all representing members of our community.

We show pride in who we are. We have pride in what we brew. We take pride in all of you. And we’re proud to do our part to ensure that everyone can live like they’re Friends Of Dorothy with pride.
