The Brewers Association has committed $50,000 to fourteen different events around the country, with the goal of encouraging “diversity and inclusion” in the craft-beer world.
Some of the other winners include: ColdXela, a Los Angeles festival focused on Latinx, Asian and African-American beer brewers; FemAle Brew Fest, a one-day Florida event that celebrates women in brewing; and the grand opening of Virginia’s Samuel D. Outlaw Blacksmith Shop Memorial Museum, a post-slavery-era museum that is collaborating with a local brewery.
Some grant money also went to Left Hand Brewing Company. The company formed their Open Hands Committee, which is trying to promote diversity at the Longmont brewery.
