This month is Pride Month in Seattle and across the nation. There are several Pride themed events happening around Seattle, culminating on June 23-25, when the Pride Parade, Seattle PrideFest, Trans Pride, and Seattle Dyke March & Rally will take place.
Fremont Brewing Company supports Pride Month and cares about the safety and self-determination of the LGBTQ community. They also want to help foster an LGBTQ presence in the craft beer World. To that end, they are preparing once again this year to release their Pride Kölsch, which will arrive just in time for all of Seattle Pride Month’s biggest events.
Here is the full press release from Fremont Brewing Company:
SEATTLE – Fremont Brewing of Seattle, Washington will be releasing its Pride Kölsch again this year in celebration of Pride month. Pride Kölsch will be distributed across Washington on draft and in 16oz cans to coincide with Pride events state-wide. Fremont will host their official Pride Kickoff Celebration featuring two Pride Kölsch infusions at their Urban Beer Garden on June 22, 2017 from 5-10pm. Proceeds from Pride Kölsch sales will be donated to Lambert House and Ingersoll Gender Center.
The vision behind Pride Kölsch is to create and foster an LGBTQ community within the craft beer world, to stand up for the safety and self-determination of this community, and to ensure that everyone can be proud of who they are, who they like, and what they drink.
Using local Skagit Valley malt and Huell Melon and Laurel hops, Pride Kölsch delivers a crisp, refreshing summer taste. “With every sip, you are supporting and strengthening a world where we can be ourselves no matter what,” said Nik Hagen, Fremont’s Community Outreach Liaison and Pride Kölsch Project Lead. “Queer members of staff were involved with every step of the beer from its inception to the brew, and all of us here at Fremont could not be more excited to share it!”
Pride Kölsch is all about love. A love for beer, a love for each other, and supporting and fighting for the indisputable right to love.
