For our July Virtual Event, Barley’s Angels Chicago and our friends in Barley’s Angels UP will be tasting Black is Beautiful stouts.
Black is Beautiful is a nation-wide initiative among breweries in collaboration with Weathered Souls Brewing in Texas to brew variants of a core stout recipe and donate the proceeds to worthy causes fighting injustice.
Many Chicago breweries are participating, so go out and buy a variant (or two or more!) and join us for a video call on Wednesday, July 29 at 6pm to taste, compare beers, and share in the ways we as beer consumers and humans can impact our communities and lift up BIPOC.
This event is free to attend! All you have to do is buy a packaged Black Is Beautiful beer and register for the video call via eventbrite.
29 breweries in Illinois are releasing Black Is Beautiful: here’s the full list
About Black Is Beautiful:
