39 Words Returns For Women’s Equality Day

Today is Women’s Equality Day! In celebration, each year on August 26th we are proud to unveil a brand new 39 Words recipe. This recipe is designed by and brewed in recognition of the women of VBC to recognize their contributions to our small business and the entire craft beer community.

Across Taproom, Sales, Production, and Operations, the women of VBC have an indelible impact on what we do & brew on a daily basis. The annual return of 39 Words is one small way to recognize the important roles that 𝐂𝐨𝐮𝐫𝐭𝐞𝐧𝐚𝐲, 𝐉𝐞𝐬𝐬, 𝐊𝐞𝐥𝐬𝐲, 𝐊𝐫𝐢𝐬𝐭𝐢𝐧, 𝐋𝐞𝐱𝐢, 𝐋𝐮𝐜𝐢, & 𝐌𝐨𝐫𝐠𝐚𝐧 play in the success of The Virginia Beer Co.

The name 39 Words represents the number of words in the 19th Amendment, starting the process of guaranteeing women’s right to vote. The 2023 recipe (the fifth iteration of 39 Words) is a 5.0% abv dry-hopped Amber Ale (giving off some subtle Wrenish Rye vibes), featuring Mosaic in the Whirlpool and a Luminosa dry-hop! This year’s theme: 𝗡𝗼 𝗟𝗶𝗺𝗶𝘁𝘀, 𝗡𝗼 𝗘𝘅𝗰𝗲𝗽𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻𝘀.

Join us on the occasion of Women’s Equality Day for the annual 39 Words release party (including live music from 4-7 pm and Old City BBQ all day) to celebrate equality, inclusivity, beers for all, and cheers with all. #BeerPeoplePurpose
