#BlackLivesMatter.

San Antonio-based Weathered Soul Brewery invited the world to brew Black Is Beautiful to raise funds and awareness for the injustice and inequity Black Americans face on a daily basis.

Nearly 1,000 breweries in 50 states and 19 countries, including a few dozen Bay Area breweries, signed up to make their version of this robust imperial stout, and donate 100% of proceeds to local organizations supporting equality and inclusion. This summer, we're highlighting these and other fundraising releases to further the conversation on race and equality in the beer industry and in our communities. 

Look for, pick up and compare these tasty releases while fighting racial injustice
