Beneficial Breweries

Breweries in Coastal Virginia are working for social causes! Check out how these local breweries have made an impact in the community, and let us know if there’s a brewery we need to add to our list!

Black is Beautiful

This is a collaborative beer project spearheaded by Weathered Souls Brewing, encouraging craft breweries to make a beer that creates awareness of the injustices that many people of color face daily and show that the brewing community is a safe place for everyone. Each participating brewery is asked to donate proceeds from their beer to a local organization that supports equality and inclusion. The following breweries in Coastal Virginia are participating:

  • Virginia Beer Company’s version benefits Media Mentors USA, a nonprofit organization that provides local young people with tools, education and platforms to create their own narratives. 
  • Oozlefinch‘s Imperial Stout is made with bourbon barrel-aged maple syrup and proceeds benefit Black Lives Matter. 

Benchtop Brewing

Mordred’s Void is a creamy stout with roasted pecans, bananas and vanilla. In an effort to support the preservation of civil liberties and fight racial injustice, the brewery donated a portion of proceeds in June to the ACLU.

Back Bay Brewing

This June, Back Bay made donations to the Urban League of Hampton Roads Young Professionals (an organization that fosters social and economic equality) and Neighborhood (a community development organization for families, committed to making South Norfolk a thriving place to live). 

Commonwealth Brewing Co.

Lovestrong: To benefit BIPOC (black, indegenous and people of color), 100% of sales from this IPA will be donated to Team Yellow and 200+ Men. Hurry, they’re almost sold out!
