Black is Beautiful Beer

The African Nova Scotian Decade for People of African Descent Coalition has teamed up Big Spruce Brewing of Cape Breton, N.S. for the release of Black is Beautiful Beer. This project is part of an international brewing project that aims to bring awareness to the injustices that many people of colour face daily.

Through this project, brewers pledge to donate 100% of the proceeds of the beer to local organizations that support equality and inclusion. In Nova Scotia, Big Spruce Brewing has teamed up with the African Nova Scotian Decade for People of African Descent Coalition (ANSDPAD), who will be the beneficiaries of all proceeds from this release!

The Big Spruce version of Black is Beautiful has been aged in Glenora Whiskey barrels and further conditioned in the can. Soft & beautiful tan foam, pouring clear and black. Aromatics of chocolate dominate with hints of red fruit and vanilla bean. Full bodied and lightly sweet, the flavours are of baking chocolate, dark roast coffee and a hint of cherry. Finishes dry, and faintly bitter, ready for another drink and a toast to a great cause.
