Credible Pale Ale
A small (4.3% abv) beer, doing big things!
With your help, we raised over $8,000 for the Dane County Rape Crisis Center!
We were motivated to take action to support those who have been harmed by sexual violence in our communities, and as women in the beer industry, we felt like brewing and selling a beer was a great place to start.
In 2018, Giant Jones Brewing brewed a batch of beer we are called “Credible.”
100% of brewery sales of Credible Pale Ale were donated to the Dane County Rape Crisis Center.

We have donated over $4,500 since June, 2020 to Freedom Inc with proceeds from the Black is Beautiful Beer.
