Witch Craft 2024

Witch Craft 2024

Some crafty women got together earlier this month to brew our annual Witch Craft IPA, a celebration of women in beer!   Read on below for more about the brew day, the beer itself and the release details and fundraising events!




This is our 5th annual brew as part of the Pink Boots Collaboration Brew Day, a global beer collaboration to celebrate and uplift women and non-binary individuals in the fermented beverage industries.  We didn't have pink boots this year, but instead opted for pink tie dye coveralls and tshirts!

We had 10 witches on the floor for the full day, helping with all aspects of the brew, as well as some other witchy friends and family that floated in to sprinkle some magical hop dust into the brew kettle. 


These witches know how to work it!


Enjoying our 'Brewers Breakfast' - some hot wort from the first runnings and a good splash of Canadian Whiskey (a special bottle from Newfoundland Distillery).


So nice to have all hands on deck! Can you tell we had fun?



Each year we brew our Witch Craft IPA, the same base recipe with a malt bill of mostly 2-row barley, some wheat and a touch of oats, but we use the annual Pink Boots Hop Blend which changes each year.  

About this year's Hop Blend from Yakima Cheif Hops:

  •  7th Annual Blend features four hops - Ahtanum®, El Dorado®, HBC 638, Idaho 7®  
  • The sensory team at Yakima Chief Hops expects berry and citrus punctuated with peppery earthiness and floral notes. “We are anticipating strong berry, orange, and stone fruit notes accompanied by herbal undertones."


An ode to the witches that came before us, and to all the original brewers, the women of the world!



We are releasing the beer on Monday, March 4th to kick off Women's History Month, followed by an event on International Women's Day on Friday, March 8th!  

  • Pints sold on March 4th and March 8th will be donated to Pink Boots Society Canada, which is dedicated to advancing women and non-binary folks in the fermented alcoholic beverage profession through education, events and scholarships.    
  • $3 from every 4-pack sold of this batch will be donated and shared between three local women's organizations: Dawson Women's Shelter, Victoria Faulkner Women's Centre and the Yukon Status of Women Council.

The beer will be sold from the Tasting Room and this year will also be availble through YLC, so see if your local Yukon Liquor Store can bring it in to your community!  

We are excited that two local partners will also be serving Witch Craft from cans, at Gather and Woodcutter's Blanket on IWD March 8th. Thanks to Shanta and Jess for helping out on the brew this year!
