Auburn’s Crooked Lane Brewing is a lot like most of the breweries around Sacramento. Their beer comes in pint cans. They have a fruit-infused milkshake IPA. They have a cool tasting room and a patio lit by dangling strings of lights.
But there’s one thing that stands out: the brewmaster is a woman.
We checked with the area chapter of the Pink Boots Society — an organization of women interested in brewing. We asked brewery owners. Out of 84 Sacramento-area breweries, Teresa Psuty of Crooked Lane was the only one we found.
