NIAGARA-ON-THE-LAKE, Ont. — The Niagara Teaching Brewery has rolled out a variety of small-batch offerings that stand for solidarity, awareness and change.
The brewery’s inaugural Brave Noise 2022 beer, which was brewed in mid-February, has hit the shelves at the college’s Wine Visitor + Education Centre in support of the Brave-Noise movement. The global collaboration supports a safe environment, free of discrimination, for women, BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ people in the beer industry. The college has also committed ongoing support to relevant charities.
Additionally, in early March, Brewfaster professor Jon Downing and students from the Brewmaster and Brewery Operations Management program produced Resist – Ukrainian Anti-Imperial Stout. The recipe was shared by Drinkers for Ukraine, an international effort to raise funds for Ukraine. Most recently, Downing and students have brewed a Ukrainian Golden Ale.
Finally, different classes of Brewmaster students marked International Women’s Day by brewing Pink Boots collaboration beer. This was the third time the Teaching Brewery participated in Pink-Boots collaboration, which supports gender equality in the beer industry.
