Kitsune Brewing Co. Celebrates Black History Month

Kitsune Brewing Co., a Phoenix staple and Arizona’s only Black-owned brewery, is celebrating Black History Month with an exclusive new IPA that will only be pouring in February for a good cause. 

In honor of Black History Month, Phoenix-based Kitsune Brewing Co., Arizona’s only Black-owned brewery, is offering an exclusive, refreshing new pour, the Know History. The limited-edition brew is a black IPA that is only available during the month of February. 

Owners Tyler and Rebecca Smith are donating a percentage of each glass to Black Girls Code, an organization dedicated to creating pathways for young women of color by teaching them new skills in computer programming and technology. Donations to Black Girls Code will be accepted all month long until the tap dries out. 

“As a Black-owned business and the only Black-owned brewery in the state, we want to use our position to help,” says Tyler, in a press release. “I want to help break down racial stigmas and serve as a voice for diversity in our industry.”

Plus, Kitsune Brewing Co. is going back in time with the Back to the 80s Beer Week later in the month. From Thursday, Feb. 16 through Sunday, Feb. 26, Kitsune is celebrating with a 10-day 80’s extravaganza featuring a special beer release, trivia and bingo nights, live music, board games, video game nights–with Smash Bros. and Mario Kart, of course. During the fun-filled event, the brewery will release Going 88, a West Coast IPA produced in collaboration with Huss Brewing Co.
