If The Crown Fits | Dole Whip Kettle Sour

The fan favourite, If the Crown Fits Dole Whip Kettle Sour, IS BACK! 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.

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 took home GOLD in its category at the Alberta Beer Awards 2023.

Back by popular demand!

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!

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. After a great first two releases and a gold medal, we knew it was time to bring it back. Today we announce our third release. If The Crown Fits… #WEARIT


We are turning eight!
