We’re excited to announce that we’ve teamed up with the New York City Gay Beer Lovers Meetup group to bring you a new beer collaboration; introducing Pride 365 IPA!
The idea was born when the GCBL group hosted a Meetup at the brewery last year. Our team and the group hit it off right away and we got to talking. We thought, what better way to celebrate LGBTQ Pride every day of the year than with a special beer? So we worked together on recipe development, collaborated with Michael Ardan, a designer in the group, to create the label, and on July 8th we’ll be rolling up our sleeves and brewing together. The beer itself is a Hazy IPA featuring Super Pride, Mosaic, Galaxy and Loral hops that have tropical fruit aromas of pineapple, melon, guava and papaya with just a touch of bitterness.
“After hosting a successful Brooklyn Pride event at the brewery in 2017, we were thrilled when a casual conversation with CIB about working together turned into this amazing collaboration on Pride 365 IPA. By allowing NYCGBL to be involved in the planning and brewing of the beer, the development of the iconic logo and, not to mention using funds from sales to support SAGE, CIB is helping support the three core values of the group, which are fellowship, philanthropy and beer education. This opportunity to work with a local brewery in our community is definitely one of the highlights of our six year existence.” – Bill Thomas, Head of NYCGBL Group
The club will be brewing the beer with Matt and the crew on July 8th and we have a special can release party at the brewery scheduled for July 28th!
So when you can try Pride 365? The can release is set for July 28th at our brewery on Surf Avenue and $1 from every 4-pack and pint sold* (from July 28 – August 28) will be donated to SAGE USA, an organization that provides advocacy and services for LGBT Elders and was hand-selected by the club to be the beneficiary of this collaboration.
We will also be supporting SAGE throughout the lead up to the NYC Pride March on June 24th, where we will be floating with our Mermaid for the second year in a row and donating $1 from every Coney Island beer sold at participating locations to SAGE.**
