For International Women's Collaboration Brew Day 2014, female brewers and beer industry types around the world were called upon to join together in their respective countries to brew a beer and help raise awareness of women in the beer industry. The said beer was to be brewed on the same day, to the same recipe - a four per cent pale ale using Cascade hops - and released under the same name: Unite. Australia's participants in this celebration were the Women of Beer collective who assembled for their fourth brew and their first at Young Henrys in Newtown. Because things tend to get done a bit differently Down Under, our ladies opted not to strictly follow the pale ale recipe in favour of something a little different. And by 'a little', you can read as 'quite a lot' because what they've brewed is a Salted Caramel Ale. Based on a Brown Ale recipe, this one has had a load of crystal malts thrown in which give off burnt toffee flavours (more so as the beer warms up). Unusually for a brown ale, it's got it's both red and pink in it. The red is the hue you'll see when you hold it up to the light and the pink, while not exactly visible, can be tasted from the pink Murray River salt which was added to the brew. This, unsurprisingly, adds a bit of a salty taste - though it's very subtle and doesn't detract from a very drinkable beer. With just over 20 kegs produced, this is a strict one-off brew which you'll need to track down pretty quickly.
