WHITE LABS DEBUTS PUREPITCH NEXT GENERATION INNOVATIONS IN HOMEBREW SIZE

Press Release:

New Homebrew Size Features Resealable Cap and Double the Cell Count for Foolproof Fermentation for Small-Scale and Homebrewers
Bringing the innovation of PurePitch Next Generation (PPNG) packaging to home and small-scale professional brewers, White Labs has reimagined its homebrew size yeast to feature a resealable cap, exceptional breathability, double the pitch rate and verifiable quality at a value brewers will love.
From the industry’s first pitchable liquid yeast to a complete revolution in the way it’s propagated and packaged, White Labs brings 27 years of exploration and innovation to its newest creation, PurePitch Next Generation (PPNG) Homebrew, delivering verifiable quality and consistency in easy-to-use packaging specifically for homebrewers.
“Homebrew is where White Labs began, and while we’ve continued to expand our range of products and packages over the last 27 years through our tireless spirit of innovation, we wanted to ensure we were keeping smaller brewers in mind when expanding our PurePitch Next Generation innovations to homebrewers,” says Chris White, founder and CEO of White Labs. “While this product is intended for homebrewers, we put the same rigorous quality standards into every batch, which results in professional quality yeast that can be used by professional and homebrewers alike.”

Hop Culture Announces Beers With(Out) Beards Festival in Portland, ME.


Support The Most Badass Women In the Beer Industry
BRICK SOUTH THOMPSON’S POINT / PORTLAND, MAINE
SATURDAY, APRIL 9TH 2022
In 2018, Grace Weitz conceptualized the first Beers With(out) Beards as part of her graduate school thesis capstone project at NYU. Over the past four years, this celebration of women in beer has grown to attract thousands of attendees and showcase over sixty women-led breweries. Additionally, the fest has featured over thirty-five events highlighting the achievements of women across all aspects of the alcoholic beverage industries. Grace started BW(O)B to create a space where everyone felt welcome to show up, taste amazing beers, and cultivate conversations around how to break through barriers. And now more than ever, we need Beers With(out) Beards.
The fifth annual Beers With(out) Beards takes pride in representing women and femme-identifying folks in the beer industry. And this year, we feel especially empowered by those who have also had the courage to speak up about the importance of equity and inclusion in craft beer. Together, everyone’s voice is stronger.
Join us on Saturday, April 9th, 2022 at Brick South in Portland, ME to celebrate the achievements of women in craft beer. All are welcome at the festival, and you’ll be able to enjoy beer from thirty-five-plus breweries that are either women-owned or owned by femme-identifying people, or that have women or femme-identifiying people in prominent leadership positions.
