Before lacing up her skates for the Buffalo Beauts of the National Women’s Hockey League, Sarah Casorso grew up playing backyard hockey on her family farm near Kelowna, B.C.

As soon as she learned how to walk, she identified “as a farmer and a hockey player,” she said in a May 2017 interview with The Hockey Writers.

In addition to playing professional hockey in Buffalo, Casorso used her experience in agriculture to grow hops and become a brewer with Bench Brewing in St. Catharines, Ont.
