Chick Beer. Yes, there is a beer called Chick Beer (http://chickbeer.com/) which is a light beer that is specifically marketed to, that's right, WOMEN!! The beer label depicts a little black dress and yes the color Pink is also on the label. Chick Beer is available at Belmont Beverage stores in Fort Wayne. The beer is advertised as having 97 calories and 3.5 grams of carbs. Here is a link to a story about Chick Beer that appeared in the local Fort Wayne newspaper today (http://www.journalgazette.net/article/20120201/FEAT/302019990). If by chance you are wondering if I HAVE tried this beer geared towards women, the answer is no. If by chance you are wondering if I am GOING to try this beer geared towards women, well I will leave you with this... my husband brought home 1 bottle of this beer 2 days ago and it has yet to be opened. Ladies, what do you think about a beer that has been marketed specifically for women? If you have had this beer, did you like/dislike it? Thoughts/ideas??
