March marks Women’s History Month, a time to honor the tireless contributions of women who have shaped the city’s rich history, culture, and society. As we celebrate, let’s rally behind the women business owners and entrepreneurs of the Philadelphia area by participating in a variety of events and initiatives at locales such as Dock Street Brewing Company, Hyatt Centric Center City Philadelphia, Panorama Wine Bar, Red Owl Tavern, Square 1682, and Stratus Rooftop Lounge.

Each year on International Women’s Day, Dock Street Brewing Company, Philadelphia’s original craft brewery, woman-owned and family-run since 1985, releases Citrahood, a 7% ABV tangerine IPA, celebrating sisterhood and women of all sizes, shapes, backgrounds, beliefs, gender identity and expressions. Citrahood is hopped in the kettle exclusively with Citra hops. It’s then fermented with Dock Street’s house hazy strain and a few hundred pounds of tangerine purée and dry-hopped with Citra, New Zealand, Wakatu, Wilamette and Amarillo. The 16 ounce cans feature a label with gorgeous artwork reflecting the spirit of the diversity among women beer drinkers. 

Citrahood will be on draft at Dock Street’s Point Breeze brewery and at Dock Street Fishtown on Front Street beginning March 8. 4-packs and cans will be available for pick up at both locations while supplies last. 

Hours of operation for Dock Street South: Tuesday 11am – 9pm; Wednesday and Thursday 11am – 10pm; Friday 11am – 11pm; Saturday 10am-11pm; Sunday 10am – 9pm
