When will there be enough women on the court?’ And my answer is, ‘When there are nine,’” Ginsburg said in 2015.The brilliant answer has since inspired countless T-shirts, tote bags, pin badges, posters, and now, a beer.“We wanted to name it Brut Bader Ginsburg but our legal team, uh, dissented,” the brewery joked.Boston-based beer enthusiasts are invited to Sam Adams Tap Room on Friday, March 29 for an unveiling. Each $20 ticket includes your first pint of When There Are Nine, a serving of four dumplings from Mei Mei, and a contribution to charity.“We’ll be donating $5 from every ticket and $1 from every When There Are Nine sold to the Pink Boots Society, which fosters advancement and education for women in the beer industry,” the event page said.Oh, and there will be a plank contest. (Because nothing goes better with beer than exercise.)In honor of RBG’s infamous workout routine, the challenge will benefit the ACLU’s Women’s Rights Project, which Justice Ginsburg co-founded in 1972.More on Doodle Celebrates International Women’s DayFinally, Someone Made a Beer That Tastes Like Lucky CharmsA Brewery Is Making Beer From Rejected Corn Flakeslast_img read more
