An inspirational note, sign of the times and just a bit of hope that locals can come together to create something unique that speaks to this town's boozy history.

So far over 800 breweries across the country have participated.

Nothing to do with self promotion, best intentions I'm sure, bless their hearts.

If black is beautiful why do so many have blonde hair ?

As an old school African American man I'm pissed of that the whiteys didn't make a good malt liquor. Those high brow beers are for young white folks.

Pathetic !

Yeah, one can just imagine how eager most of us are to run out and buy some of that stuff. As above, probably just malt liquor repackaged.

Need a new line of cars BLMWs.

You would think those three fags could brew a dark beer for that?

Does the beer market really need shoe polish strained through a dirty sock? They will be no competition.

maybe they should put Flavor Flavs picture on the bottle.

Where is the beer for the injustice white people face daily, or cops, or immigrants, or women, or children? How about a child-trafficking beer? How about a sex-trafficking beer? How about a beer bringing attention to the great injustices faced by our great president? We could call it, "Orange is Beautiful" beer.

The beer will be a malt liquor ONLY SERVED IN 40oz and only at the 711. The next beer out will be called WHITE GUILT it will be flat pale wheat only served in hydroflasks.

Hahaha.. Fakers like this are the worst. Virtue Signaling Fakers. Trying to think of the last time I saw a black guy into micro brews, and drinking a stout ? Hmm never. Good Move Heroes !

I did not make the comment at 8:12.

Why are Mark Squitiro's boyfriends all racist scum?

He didn't use to be a racist.

Judging by his friends, I guess he is one now.

Funny, since alcohol and blacks don't mix. More drunk driving, more accidents, and ultimately more black babies born and raised without having a father around.

I made a comment about deleted comments, now that observation has been deleted. Did the Star take over this blog and start censuring? I seen some pretty raw stuff allowed on here, disappointed with censuring of fairly benign comments and criticism.

I would buy the 'Black is Beautiful' beer, but it doesn't work.

I would buy the "Black is Beautiful" beer, but I am afraid black-on-black crime would break out in my tummy.

Yes, police persecute people of color. Nevermind what the numbers say.

No way. Some great micro-breweries out there and not going to buy his beer because he’s black. In fact , let the BLMs buy his beer......maybe they can scrape some loose change together for a growler.

I just quit Trout Unlimited when they went all SJW. It would be a cold day in hell before I bought SJW themed beer. They should have made Malt Liquor in shorty cans with Shaft's picture on it. There should be a motto printed above..."gettin over on the man"

Black-hating racists are not who the brew is for. Too few of them around. But the protestors are 80% white and they could use a cold one after a tough march downtown or a jaywalking argument with OPPD. I would guess around 40% of Americans still support BLM. So, yeah, there could be big market there.
