Your favorite IPA might be Irreplaceable, but that doesn’t mean you can’t try something new in terms of your bubbly beer. Especially if it’s named for the Queen Bey—Beyoncé—herself.

The Queen’s brew (no, it’s not Lemonade) has been made a reality by Lineup Brewing, a Brooklyn-based brewery owned and operated by women. The beer is fittingly called “Bïeryoncé,” and is a German-style Pilsner, featuring a “crisp grain build” and German hops. Bïeryoncé is the company’s first canned beer and was originally released back in 2016.

Katarina Martinez, the owner and head brewer at Lineup Brewing, is not your stereotypical bearded brewmaster dude. While girls may run the world, they do not yet run the brewing industry; as of March, Martinez was the only woman who owned and operated her own business outright. She hopes that she can share her knowledge with “anybody—male or female” who wants to learn a thing or two about brewing.

As for Bïeryoncé, Katarina told Bon Appétit that the beer was originally brewed for a party that took place at the same time as a Beyoncé concert which she was unable to attend.

“I decided to name it in her honor,” she said. “I’m also a Hispanic, woman-owned and operated business, so I really look up to her and the strength and empowerment she promotes with women.”

You can find Bïeryoncé and other beers from Lineup Brewing using the tool on the brewery’s website.
