Hella Coastal IPA
Celebrating Our First Beer
There are over 9,000 breweries in the United States and less than 1% are Black-owned. As Oakland natives and Oakland’s only Black-owned brewery, it is important for us to create a space that is for and by the community. We are focused on changing the narrative, and showing the possibility for increased diversity, equity, and inclusivity in all aspects of brewing. We want to raise a pint and bring awareness to both the historic and current economic, and social issues concerning our communities.
Hop on the wave and be part of the movement!
Reppin' For The Town
Heart of the Bay
Out of the over 9,000 breweries in the country there are only 60 Black owned and operated breweries. While the beer drinking side of the industry is becoming more diverse, the ownership and production side has maintained its homogeneous roots and is not diverse at all. We want equality in the industry, but what we really need is to build equity and ownership and really get involved in craft beer as producers and not only consumers.
