Black-Owned Breweries

taps The beer industry is far behind where it should be in terms of diversity, inclusivity and representation. If you have the opportunity, consider supporting these black-owned American breweries. Let them know that you see them, appreciate them, that you are aware of the huge challenges they face. That they are helping inspire and lead a new and better generation of brewers and consumers. They matter.

This is a working list, and is by no means complete. Please let me know if I have missed any. Breweries in pink are black woman owned or co-owned.
