Black is Beautiful
July 28, 2020
The Black is Beautiful initiative is a collaborative effort led by Weathered Souls Brewing in San Antonio, TX to bring awareness to – and raise funds to address – the injustices that many people of color face daily.
The mission of Black is Beautiful 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. Weathered Souls is asking for all breweries and brewers far and wide to raise a glass in unison and participate in this collaboration.
We are proud to be one of more than 1,000 breweries participating in brewing a rendition of the Black is Beautiful Imperial Stout recipe.
Available now on draft and in to-go crowlers at the Harpoon Beer Hall (and in 4-packs later this fall), this Tropical Stout showcases a wide range of different dark and black malt characteristics, with notes of espresso, milk chocolate, dried fruit, and molasses.
With whirlpool and dry-hop additions of Citra and Ekuanot, it opens with a bright nose of citrus and tropical fruit but finishes clean with just a touch of bitterness and roast.
Our Diversity, Inclusion & Unity Committee has chosen to donate proceeds of the Black is Beautiful beer to the Boston and Rutland, Vermont chapters of the NAACP.
