PORTLAND, Ore. — Ecliptic Brewing is proud to stand with San Antonio’s Weathered Souls Brewing Company in supporting efforts to raise awareness for racial injustice through their Black is Beautiful initiative. These efforts include a special draft-only Black is Beautiful Stout beer release, with Ecliptic’s version coming July 31st.
Ecliptic will donate 100% of the beer’s proceeds to two local organizations: the Black Resilience Fund and Don’t Shoot PDX. Additionally, Ecliptic will donate 10% of their restaurant sales – split between both organizations- at the beer’s launch event on Friday, July 31st.
The base recipe for the campaign was created by Weathered Souls and allows each participating brewery to add their own twist to the beer. Ecliptic’s was brewed in the Export style and features full roast flavor, while still managing to hit the spot on a warm summer day with a 6% ABV.
“I am proud that we are joining breweries from all over the world to help raise funds for this great cause and the charities that support ending racial injustice”” says Ecliptic’s Owner and Brewmaster, John Harris.
Ecliptic Brewing’s Black is Beautiful Stout will be released on draft-only and in very limited distribution throughout Portland, OR and Seattle, WA. Click here for details about the launch event.
