Boise’s popular Dagger Falls IPA goes pink

Sockeye_IPA-pink_CFC_6-packSockeye Brewing’s proudly hoppy Dagger Falls IPA might be bitter — but it’s also sweet.

In an effort to raise breast cancer awareness, six-packs of Sockeye Brewing’s Dagger Falls IPA will be available in pink cans during October.

Pretty cool, eh?

Stein Distributing, Sockeye and other local businesses will make monetary donations on 2,000 cases of the pink sixers sold, which will go to St. Luke’s Mountain States Tumor Institute and Saint Alphonsus Cancer Care Center.

I’ll write more about the pink Dagger Falls on Friday in a “Beer Notes” column; Sockeye will host a pink-can kick-off party Oct. 5. The column also will cover fall seasonals and fresh-hopped beers from some Boise-area breweries, plus a new gluten-free IPA from Widmer Brothers Brewing that does not suck.
