This beer supports women in the brewing industry by providing a scholarship at Olds College of Agriculture & Technology. The brew features tropical fruity, herbal, and woody notes, making it a unique and refreshing beverage to enjoy.

In addition to supporting the education of women in brewing, a portion of the profits from the sale of 'Crushing It' will be donated to Pink Boots Society.
