3rd Annual DC Brau Pride Pils cans celebrate legacy of Marsha P. Johnson

Starting next week, more than 28,000 cans of DC Brau’s award-winning Brau Pils will hit the region’s shelves in vibrant yellow cans prominently featuring the likeness of LGBTQ activist and Stonewall icon Marsha P. Johnson. More than 100 restaurants, bars and retailers will be selling the specially branded PRIDE PILS cans during DC’s Capital Pride for a third year in a row with 100% of the proceeds going to benefit SMYAL ( and The Blade Foundation (

“This partnership with The Washington Blade continues to be one of our favorite projects each year, because it celebrates the joy and diversity of the LGBTQ community while making a lasting impact on organizations that are doing amazing work here at home and around the world,” says Mari Rodela, DC Brau’s Chief Community & Culture Officer. “Over the last two years, the Pride Pils project has raised more than $23,750 for SMYAL and The Blade Foundation.”

The public will begin to see PRIDE PILS cans on shelves across the DMV starting May 31 at more than 100 restaurants, bars and retailers including grocery stores like Whole Foods, Safeway and Yes Organic Markets. A full list of outlets selling PRIDE PILS can be found online (
