In 2018, a group of African-Americans create the nation’s first-ever black beer festival, a historic event aiming to reshape the future of craft beer.
Craft beer is an annual multi-billion dollar boom for the United States economy. Yet, the overwhelming majority of this industry remains white-male-dominated, with women and minorities occupying a small fraction of its workforce and brewing culture. A Fresh Perspective tells the story of three African- Americans in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, who create the nation’s first-ever black beer festival, a historic event aiming to diversify the industry while promoting a new narrative in craft beer.
