Black is Beautiful


We’re proud to announce that we are continuing to help fight against racial injustice by brewing an Imperial Stout called Black is Beautiful with the Black is Beautiful initiative created by Marcus J. Baskerville at Weathered Souls Brewing

The Black is Beautiful initiative is a collaborative effort amongst the brewing community and its customers that brings awareness to the injustices that many people of color face daily. Their mission is to bridge the gap that’s been around for ages and provide a platform to show that the brewing community is an inclusive place for everyone of any color. We are asking for all breweries and brewers far and wide to raise a glass with us in unison and participate in this collaboration.

Black is Beautiful is also an Imperial Stout that was designed to showcase the different shades of black that will have our own Modist twist to it. Our version will have 100% of the proceeds going directly to Justice Frontline Aid, the collaborative effort started by Nur-D and his crew. They are the same group that set up and have continued to manage the donation drop that we’ve had the pleasure of hosting in our taproom since the murder of George Floyd by the four MPD police officers. The money raised by Black is Beautiful will go directly to helping the communities affected by this injustice, as well as providing much needed first aid to those putting their lives in danger during peacefully protesting each day in our community.

More information on our version of Black is Beautiful to come.
