he canning line was in use early on a Monday morning as we packaged our version of Weathered Souls Brewing Co.'s Black is Beautiful Imperial Stout recipe. Variants of this beer are being brewed throughout the world as the craft beer community comes together to collaborate in unison to stand for equality and inclusion amongst people of color.
100% of proceeds from sales of VBC's release of Black is Beautiful will be donated to support Media Mentors. This local non-profit is focused on empowering communities across the United States that have been underserved by public institutions, elected officials, and people who are employed to protect and serve our neighborhoods. Media Mentors works to organize fundraising campaigns, promote voter registration events, share volunteer opportunities and scholarship information, promote positive media, and provide training sessions for tomorrow’s community leaders.
VBC's version of Black is Beautiful takes Weathered Souls Brewing Co.'s open source Imperial Stout recipe and blends in our own Waypost Imperial Stout that has been aging in Willett Bourbon barrels and Apple Brandy barrels for 12 months. Black is Beautiful will be released today (6/29) at 3 pm. It is available for purchase in individual 16 oz. cans and 4-packs. Limited on-premise pours will also be available starting today.
Our goal with this release is to highlight how ideas & flavors from across the country can come together as one, while supporting a community cause that gives a voice to the all too often voiceless. We stand with Weathered Souls Brewing Co. We stand with our neighbors. And we stand with all of you. Today and always.
