This is our small contribution to the Black is Beautiful global collaboration to raise awareness for the injustices people of Color face daily.
The Black is Beautiful initiative hosted by Weathered Souls Brewing in San Antonio, Texas, and is a collaborative effort amongst the global 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.
As a small brewery in Europe we wanted to have our contribution to this global cause support the actions of "EXIT-Deutschland - Ausstiege aus dem Rechtsextremismus". EXIT-Germany is an initiative assisting individuals, who want to leave the extreme right-wing movement and start a new life. EXIT-Germany was founded by criminologist and former police detective Bernd Wagner and former neo-Nazi leader Ingo Hasselbach. EXIT-Germany has been working since summer 2000 to provide assistance to dropouts from extreme and violent right-wing environments.
We will be donating the proceeds from the sale of this beer to EXIT-Deutschland, and support the work they are doing to provide an exit from the extreme right-wing for those that want to turn away from the hate and dehumanising ways of the extreme far-right.
About the beer:
We followed the recipe for this beer almost exactly as written by Weathered Souls Brewing, but we followed our water treatment process as well as added some of our favourite malt to the Grain-Bill, Smoked Beechwood malt from Bamburg, Germany. We decided to keep the alcohol content at 7% for this beer, and find the beer to have a deep and complex dark chocolate flavour, with a pronounced bitterness from the roasted chocolate malt and the single hop usage of Cascade hops - with subdued c02 the creaminess of the beer is more pronounced. The slight residual sweetness of the beer helps balance the bitterness and provides for an interesting taste journey as the beer is allowed to come to room temperature. This is a "sipper", so we recommend you try it at warmer temperatures than you would usually try Ales at, so we highly recommend you do not drink this Ice-cold as many flavour nuances will be masked.
