30 Breweries In North Carolina Launch Special Beer To Support LGBT Nonprofits

by Rob Smith April 15, 2016

Evangeline: Saison, 8.1%, Dry Farmhouse Ale with rye, unmalted wheat, Aramis hops and notes of apple, pear, and pineapple

Gay-friendly North Carolina citizens will soon have a reason to drink up for a good cause! North Carolina’s notorious anti-LGBT House Bill 2 seems to be creating more enemies by the day, and now 30 local breweries are teaming up to fight it.

The craft breweries will come together to create a special beer to raise money to support LGBT causes in the state. The beer will be called “Don’t Be Mean To People, A Golden Rule Saison,” and will be released in May.

The News & Observer has the rest of the tasty details:

All profits from the beer will be donated to two LGBT nonprofits, Equality North Carolina and the QORDS summer camp for LGBT youth.

“We didn’t feel like HB2 represented us as businesses or as residents of North Carolina,” Erik Lars Myers of Hillsborough’s Mystery Brewing Company said in a news release Monday. “We wanted to do something in response and making beer is what we do.”

The beer will be brewed on April 16 at Ponysaurus Brewing Company in Durham using support, labor and ingredients provided by more than 30 breweries.

We’re glad to see more people standing up to hate in North Carolina. If we lived there, we’d definitely grab a case or two of this brew.
