That time I brewed beer @ [Theoretically] Brewing Co.

[Theoretically] Brewing Co. has been on the #YQL beer scene since 2015 and has participated for the past few years in the International Women’s Collaboration Brew Day. This day just so happens to coincide with International Women’s Day celebrated annually on March 8th.

I had the wonderful opportunity to help out with a crew of diverse women who were ready to get their hands dirty in the art form of micro-brewing.
