George Floyd’s Arresting Officer Charged With 3rd-Degree Murder, Manslaughter – NPR


At the time of this post, Derek Chauvin has been handcuffed and we’re one step closer to justice. However, due to the gravity of the situation, we have made the decision to postpone the decade’s largest Minneapolis based live stream event until further notice. On top of that, we have also suspended our beer delivery service for the safety of both employees, customers, and the rest of the community. We will also begin to close down at 6 pm until further notice, but reserve the right to close down at any time.  


We will continue to make and sell beer out of our taproom and from our liquor store partners. We will also continue to be a safe place for anyone who needs a safe place during the unrest, we will also function as a first-aid supplies drop off. If we’re on our patio, we’re here for you with water, first aid, food, whatever we can do to help our community.


Stay tuned to our social media as we continue to update on what’s going on.


We urge you again to donate and take action.


For anyone protesting (civilly), you got a beer on us. If you’re comfortable with it, just message us a pic of you trying to right this wrong, and we’ll figure it out. And to the entire black community, we are here for you. Modist has your back. Don’t back down.


Our funds will be directed to:

  • George Floyd Memorial Fund
  • Minnesota Freedom Fund
  • Justice 4 Jamar
  • Philando Castile Relief Foundation
  • Brewing Change Collaborative

We’re also collect first aid supplies with the help of Nur-D. For most up to date needs and donations times, follow our social medias. If you can’t make it to Modist with donations, please consider donating to local organizations if you are able.


You can find a few here: http://mspmag.com/arts-and-culture/general-interest/how-to-support-the-twin-cities/#.XtLeJUyizL0.facebook



If you’re outside of the twin cities area you can donate $ via PayPal to justicefrontlineaidcrew@gmail.com


If you or someone you know that was protesting has been arrested there is a legal hotline working in conjunction with Minnesota Freedom Fund that you can call for legal advice and general guidance. That phone number is 612.444.2654


Join us in using your voices to call for justice on behalf of George Floyd and all those who have been murdered at the hands of law enforcement. Here are some great numbers to start with:

  • Governor Walz 651.201.3400
  • Mayor Frey 612.673.2100
  • DA Mike Freeman 612.348.5550
  • Police Chief Arrandando 612.673.3550
  • Sheriff Dave Hutch 612.358.3744
  • Minneapolis Department of Civil Rights 612.673.3012
