Black is Beautiful

Imperial Stout

Black is Beautiful is a deep, rich imperial stout. The original recipe came from Weathered Souls Brewing of San Antonio, TX—their idea was to share it with the brewing world, with one stipulation: all of the proceeds from the beer would go to local charities supporting racial equality and inclusion. On top of a generous grain bill, our version of this beer is brewed with flint corn—grown by New American farmers with the support of Cultivating Community—and is fermented with Belgian-style yeast. Black is Beautiful contains bold notes of chocolate, coffee, and dried fruit, complemented by a lightly sweet flavor. All profits from the sales of our version of Black is Beautiful will go to: Indigo Arts Alliance and Maine Inside Out.

Dark Beers

A beer’s dark color comes from kilned malts. These specialty malts can add flavors of chocolate, coffee, and roastiness. Another fun fact: dark beers aren’t always heavy—some can have a very light, refreshing mouthfeel.
