DC Brau Brewing Company and The Washington Blade are teaming up on a specially branded can of Brau Pils for this summer’s PRIDE celebration. The contest received more than 30 entries that were narrowed down to the top 12. The top 12 were voted on by the public and the winner is Josette Matoto.
About 700 cases of Brau Pils will be re-packaged as PRIDE PILS for distribution during PRIDE 2017 this June in Washington, D.C.
Proceeds from the sale of PRIDE PILS will benefit local LGBTQ youth empowerment program, SMYAL (smyal.org), and The Washington Blade Foundation (www.washingtonbladefoundation.org), which is dedicated to preserving the Blade’s legacy while funding new enterprise journalism projects and encouraging the next generation of LGBT journalists.
DC Brau and the Washington Blade will officially launch the beer on Wednesday, June 7. Details will be available at washingtonblade.com/dcbrau in the coming weeks.
