Starting the week of July 13th, 11 Southern Nevada breweries will be tapping "Black Is Beautiful" beer. Proceeds will go to ACLU, Las Vegas Chapter of NAACP, D.R.E.A.M. Developing Responsible Economically Advanced Model-Citizens and Alpha Phi Alpha.
The beer was created by Weathered Souls Brewery. According to a message on their website:
With the current tensions that are rising we thought that it was of grave importance to start the Black Is Beautiful initiative. We took a stout recipe and decided to call on our peers in the brewing industry to collaborate in unison for equality and inclusion amongst people of color. All proceeds from the purchase of these releases will be donated to local funds that support police brutality reform and legal defenses.
Please look for updates from your local breweries when this beer will release. If your favorite brewery hasn't yet signed on, shout us out and tag them with the #BlackIsBeautifulBeer. We appreciate you for supporting our cause and can't wait for everyone to get a taste of all the variations of Black is Beautiful.
