BLACK HISTORY MONTH 2022
With only 1% of over 8,500 breweries in the United States being black owned, we strive to create a more diverse space in the brewing community. To spread awareness of the lack of diversity in the brewing industry, we have created four unique beers for Black History Month in partnership with four major influencers who are passionate about creating more of Black Brewers in the brewing industry. We are excited to work with these influencers to spread the word of under-representation of black brewers in the brewing community, and share some amazing beers with each of their unique audiences.
