"Black is Beautiful" beer raises awareness & money

Updated: August 07, 2020 10:15 PM

Bent Paddle debuted their take on a beer called “Black is Beautiful” Friday.


The brewery joined more than one thousand other breweries around the country in the creation of the beer as part of an initiative to help raise awareness on racial injustice.

On Friday, people were happy to come out, have a drink and show their support.

“It’s nice to support a business that time and time again show that they care about their community and their people,” Jace Legarde, a patron said.

Bent Paddle is donating all proceeds of the beer to the Duluth NAACP and the Minnesota Craft Brewery Guilds’ Diversity Scholarship Foundation.
