Beer Is For Everyone
Less than 1% of Breweries are Black Women-Owned – so let’s show our support!
At Beer is for Everyone, we understand that many people picture a cis-white male with a grizzly beard when they think of craft beer. But the reality of the craft beer industry is much more diverse and representative than people might be led to believe. In fact, there are genuinely amazing women-led, POC-led, LGTBQIAA–led craft breweries out there that we, as a non-profit, are dedicated to highlighting. Because for beer to indeed be for everyone, these contributions cannot go unnoticed. These brewery owners are doing their part, so we hope this helps do ours.
