Libeeration Beer Outta’ Portsmouth Is Brewed For Ladies Dealing With Menopause!
According to WMTW, The Portsmouth Brewery is giving "hot", menopausal women liberation from their uncomfortable symptoms with their Libeeration craft beer. I can't wait to try it! An idea this epic could only have been the brainchild of a woman, her name is Joanne Francis. Joanne is the co-owner of The Portsmouth Brewery and Smuttynose Brewing Company. Joanne first floated the idea of a brew for women going through menopause six years ago, it didn't go over well. Fast forward to October, 2017 and along with her head brewer, Matt Gallagher, they offered up a magical elixir to female craft brew fans who were all asking for someone to, "Please open a window, oh my God it's hot in here!" Libeeration was such a hit that it will be re-released on December 1st. ALL of my girlfriends will be getting a case! Joanne did her research and hired a team of herbalists and health practitioners to develop a tasty beer that would help ease the worst symptoms of "The Change"; sleeplessness, hot flashes and those killer mood swings. What did they come up with?
The ingredients sound like they belong in a cauldron, which only makes me like it more!
- Lemon Balm
- Stinging Nettle
There are no medicinal claims being made, but I'll drink a beer for any reason. If it cools me off from a hot flash, all the better! Thank you Joanne, I look forward to quaffing a couple down with my friends on December 1st!
