Nicole Zussman: Appalachian Mountain Club

Powered by RedCircle

When Nicole finished climbing to the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro, she knew something had changed about her. Soon after, she left her corporate career in search of a new trail and challenge, one that had never been done before. She found that path at Appalachian Mountain Club, a 150-year-old organization whose purpose is to foster the protection, enjoyment, and understanding of the outdoors…and one that had never had a woman leader.

You may know AMC through its world-class recreational network of professionally maintained trails and best-in-class outdoor program centers, lodges, cabins, camps, and campsites. From backcountry campsites to front country lodges to world-famous high mountain huts, AMC has had an undeniable impact on the understanding of and appreciation of the natural world for over a century. 

Let’s share a toast to Nicole and all the other trailblazers on International Women’s Day with  Trailblazer, our hoppy helles. A liquid legend in the land of brews, it follows a crisp peach nose through cairns of citrus and florals, peaking at a whole new elevation of hops. The descent is smooth and at times bitter, a true taste of success on a trail hard-traveled, and our toast to those who’ve traveled it before.
