Back from the Dead | If The Crown Fits

By: Naomi Kerchinsky

The fan favourite, If the Crown Fits Dole Whip Kettle Sour, returns from the dead in 2022 because of YOUR votes. An original 2021 Pink Boots Brew recipe, this beer was based on Disneyland’s Dole Whip pineapple frozen treat. This crownable beer full of pineapple, tropical hops, and vanilla has the right balance of sweet and sour goodness. 

Dole Whip Kettle Sour

Pineapple Dole Whip Beer

If The Crown Fits pours a yellow-straw colour with a fine white head. The nose is greeted by a big burst of pineapple and a little malt sweetness. Made with fresh pineapple puree, the flavour explodes with a fruity, gentle tartness softened by the addition of lactose. The Pink Boots blend hops are more noticeable after the first couple of sips, and they further lend a subtle tropical fruit flavour that supports and add depth to this pineapple-forward brew. This beer is super refreshing and will transport you to Disneyland’s Aloha Isle with one sip. Get it while you can as it won’t last long as the days lengthen and the weather warms up.

Fun Fact: If the Crown Fits was the people voted Victor in Monk Madness.

What if you could bring ONE beer back from the dead?

In 2021, Troubled Monk brewed more seasonals than ever before. And we noticed every time one of these seasonals would sell out, you would ask us, “Will it return?” Due to the nature of seasonals, the answer was no, not today. That was until November 2021, when we launched Monk Madness and allowed YOU to decide which one beer you wanted back from the dead.

The 32 seasonal beer single-elimination battle pitted each beer against another until only one victor remained. 32 beers entered, but only one beer returned, and that beer was If the Crown Fits Dole Whip Kettle Sour. The recipe for this beer was created for Troubled Monk’s 2021 Pink Boots Women’s Brew using a pink boots blend of hops, plenty of pineapple goodness, and greek yogurt to sour. This crushable beer fast became a fan favourite. 

Then on International Women’s Day, March 8, 2022, the women of Troubled Monk – along with two lucky winners from our “Monk Madness Brewer for a Day” contest – re-created this delicious delight. Today we can announce this beer is officially back from the dead and ready to whip! 

Watch Me Whip

If The Crown Fits is a Dole Whip Kettle Sour brewed by the women of Troubled Monk, with a hop blend from the Pink Boots Society, to celebrate International Women’s Day. This is an easy-drinking, fruity beer fit for a queen. If the crown fits, wear it.
