Pink Suede Boots

Fruited Pale Ale
5.5% ABV

Inspired by “Blue Suede Shoes” Carl Perkins

“Pink Suede Boots” is released during International Women’s Month as a collaboration with the Pink Boots Society. This program exists to assist, inspire, and encourage women and/or non-binary individuals in the fermented/alcoholic beverage profession through education. Proceeds will go straight to the Pink Boots Society for further assistance in scholarships and community building for this organization. Our version uses a pale ale base with the Pink Boots hop blend from Yakima Chief Hops that gives big citrus punch flavors and aromas of fresh flowers. We also added sweet and tart cherry puree to give it a slight pink hue. A slightly bitter, sweet fruited pale ale that will have you singing “you can do anything, but lay off my pink suede boots.”

Food Pairings: Pot Roast • Irish Cheddar • Cherry Pie

“Blue Suede Shoes” Carl Perkins

Recorded at Memphis Recording Service, 1955

Written by Carl Perkins days before he recorded it, it is considered to be one of the first rockabilly records. The song was made famous by Elvis Presley when he recorded and released it in 1956, and Perkins would just be recognized as the songwriter. He was the first Sun Records performer with a country song selling a million copies to cross over to both R&B and pop charts, earning a gold record. The song was chosen by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as one of the “500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll;” was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1999; listed in Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Songs of All Time; in 2006, was included in the National Recording Registry in the Library of Congress; and is now considered as a rock and roll standard. Carl Perkins’ songs personified the rockabilly era, and influenced artists such as: Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Eric Clapton, the Beatles and even Paul McCartney has said “if there was no Carl Perkins, there would be no Beatles.”
