Devil’s Den owner teaming up to create pink beer for cancer awareness

Now here’s a charitable cause we can all drink to.

Erin Wallace, the owner of Devil’s Den, has partnered with Bucks County microbrewery Free Will to create a special beer in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

The Saison de Rose is a typical Belgian Saison Ale at heart — allow us to be beer snobs for a moment: Saisons are pale ales that are highly carbonated and heavy on fruity or spicy flavors — but is tinted pink, thanks to a heaping helping of hibiscus flowers. The Den’s reps tell us that the beer is bursting with flavor, thanks to the addition of ruby-red grapefruit, fresh ginger and pink peppercorns. (We sense a color theme…)

Devil’s Den is throwing a release party weekend for Saison de Rose from Oct. 4-6, and bottle shops throughout the city will stock the limited-run beer in 750ml bottles. The sale of every keg and bottle of the brew sold at these shops will benefit Penn Medicine’s Rena Rowan Breast Center and its research.

In addition to the Den, Saison de Rose can be found at the Old Eagle Tavern in Manayunk and Barren Hill Tavern in Lafayette Hill, and will also be featured at the Midtown Village Fall Festival, on Oct. 6.
