Donate to the Michael Jackson Foundation Brewing Diversity Challenge Grant


ProBrewer and the MJF have combined forces to help bring diversity to American brewhouses. And thanks to the generosity of Brooklyn Brewery, donations received through May 1st will be matched in full by the brewery, up to $100,000. Please help us make the most of this challenge grant by donating to the MJF in the run-up to this year’s BA Craft Brewer’s Conference in Minneapolis.
What’s this “challenge grant”?
The Brooklyn Brewery has offered to fund a permanent endowment for the MJF with a dollar-for-dollar match on all donations made in the run-up to the Craft Brewer’s Conference (May 2nd – 5th, 2022). For every dollar you donate, Brooklyn Brewery will match your donation up to $100,000. This means that if you donate $25, the MJF receives $50; if you donate $2,500, the MJF gets $5k, etc. It’s really that simple… but it’s a challenge grant, so we only get these funds if the industry steps up to support us. We’re especially grateful to ProBrewer for partnering with us on this amazing opportunity to double the value of your donation. We can only do this with the support of people like you!
A diverse, inclusive and equitable brewing industry is a healthy brewing industry, and it’s what we all want to see. So please join ProBrewer and the MJF as we work with Brooklyn Brewery to help make this industry the kind of inviting place we always wanted it to be.

40 Breweries to Supply Suds for Beer Fest Benefitting Twisted Hippo

40 Breweries to Supply Suds for Beer Fest Benefitting Twisted Hippo Brewpub – Eater Chicago
It’s been more than three weeks since flames destroyed Twisted Hippo, an Albany Park brewpub cherished by its neighborhood, a welcoming place for families and friends, that invited people from many walks of life.
Community was at the center of the brewpub’s mission since it opened in 2019, bringing much needed stability to a space that had turned into a revolving door for failed breweries. The commitment to the neighborhood helped Twisted Hippo thrive, and the way Marilee and Karl Rutherford went about their business was something other brewers noticed and admired.
Parts of the kitchen were the only items that survived the February 21 fire, says Michelle Foik, co-owner of Eris Brewery and Cider House. She’s kept in contact with Twisted Hippo ownership. It was only this week that they were allowed to return to the site to collect anything that may still have value.

The women leading Barcelona’s craft beer revolution

‘It’s a vocation’: the women leading Barcelona’s craft beer revolution
Female brewers in the Catalan capital are finding success in an industry traditionally dominated by men
It was Steve Huxley, a Liverpudlian and long-term Barcelona resident, who introduced the city to craft beer when he opened the Barcelona Brewing Company in 1993, but it was a woman, Judit Cartex, who helped establish Barcelona as Spain’s craft beer capital.
“Beer has always been a part of my life,” she says. “We were poor and all we had to drink was tap water, no Coca-Cola. Except on Sundays my mother and grandmother would open a litre bottle of beer to watch football on TV. Very English, no?
“It was Steve who opened our eyes to the possibilities of craft beer, not just in Barcelona but in the rest of Spain,” says Cartex, who learned her trade from Huxley and ran her own brewery, Cerveza Barra, until the floor collapsed and the building was condemned.

It’s Arkansas Craft Beer Week!

Arkansas Craft Beer Week puts spotlight on growing industry
Arkansas Craft Beer Week is taking place this week. It runs through March 12, culminating with a special pint day to benefit the Arkansas Brewers Guild. This is the third year that Gov. Asa Hutchinson has proclaimed the week in an effort to spotlight the state’s growing craft beer industry.
Local brewers seem to have survived the worst of Covid-19 and are once again thriving. There are 18 breweries currently operating in Benton and Washington counties. Twenty if you count the two in Eureka Springs. Twenty-one if you want to factor for cider.
Add at least four more to the total when breweries-in-planning (that we know about) come online later this year.
The days when the brew pub on Dickson Street was the only place making beer in NWA seem like ancient history. Now, if you live in any of the four main cities along the I-49 corridor, you are generally within a five-minute drive of a brewery taproom.
The entire state is seeing the same surge. There are now 50 breweries making beer in Arkansas, with probably a dozen or more in various stages of planning.
