Black is Beautiful (Can)
Introducing our rendition of the @weatheredsoulsbrewing imperial stout, BLACK IS BEAUTIFUL.
This beer is not about us - we are just one among over 1,000 breweries across 20 countries who have brewed Weathered Souls’ magnificent recipe in support of justice and equality for People of Colour. All proceeds from the sale of this beer will be donated to causes promoting racial justice and elevating our local Black community.
In our position of privilege, we struggled to know where to donate the funds to best support BIPOC. We had the incredible opportunity to speak with a Black community leader in Durham region, who alerted us to the desperate need for funding of @homeboundwellness in Ajax. This Black-owned-and-run non-profit provides services to seniors who are at risk for or who are isolated, loneliness or depressed. Their free hot meal program is facing closure due to lack of funding, and we have donated a portion of the proceeds in advance of the sale of the beer to help keep this necessary program running as they look to secure ongoing funding for the future. We look to Cerita Miller and her volunteers at Homebound Wellness Centre as an example of how, when you support the Black community, everyone is enriched as a result.
We will be donating the remaining proceeds to @blacklegalactioncentre, a non-profit community legal clinic that provides free legal services for low or no income Black residents of Ontario.
This is a 10% ABV oatmeal stout that is smooth and delicious.
