Black Is Beautiful

Enjoy local variations of this robust stout while fighting racial injustice. Special releases are on the way from neighborhood breweries. Click on a chapter to see who's brewing one near you.

San Antonio-based Weathered Soul Brewery invited the world's craft breweries to produce a riff of its Imperial Stout recipe in support of Black Lives Matter -- and a movement was born. Black Is Beautiful beers not only make a statement with their bold taste, but are fundraisers for local racial justice programs. Look for, pick up and compare these releases from craft brewers across the Bay -- and the world. Learn more, and see all participating breweries, HERE.
