Straight to Ale (Huntsville, Alabama) has officially announced that it will begin the Limited Release of Black is Beautiful, an Imperial Stout brewed in conjunction with Weathered Souls Brewing Co. (San Antonio, Texas), at 11 a.m. on July 6.
Brewed as Straight to Ale’s contribution to Weathered Souls Brewing Co.’s Black is Beautiful initiative, Black is Beautiful is a 10% ABV Imperial Stout brewed with “lots of oats” and generously hopped with “complex American and vibrant New Zealand [hops].” Dropping to make an impact, 100% of the proceeds raised from the sale of Straight to Ale’s take on Black is Beautiful will be donated to the Alabama chapter of the Alabama NAACP.
If you are unfamiliar with the Black is Beautiful initiative, here is how Weathered Souls Brewing Co. describes this nationwide collaborative effort:
“The Black is Beautiful initiative is a collaborative effort among the brewing community and its customers, in an attempt to bring awareness to the injustices that many people of color face daily. Our mission 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.”
Straight to Ale’s Black is Beautiful Imperial Stout will debut in the brewery’s taproom on July 6 and will be available only as long as supplies last. Available exclusively at the brewery in 6-packs of 12 oz. cans and on draft, this Limited Release will not see distribution. Prost!
