We are a grassroots initiative dedicated to supporting BIPOC and LGBTQ2S+ folks in the craft brewing industry and community.


Our objective is to promote and foster a diverse, respectful, and welcoming brewing industry in Vancouver, BC and beyond. We share resources to help breweries create spaces and cultures that are anti-racist, anti-discriminatory and inclusive. 


In 2020 we established the Diversity In Brewing Award - an annual scholarship with Kwantlen Polytechnic University to support BIPOC and LGBTQ2S+ brewing students. 

We acknowledge that our work takes place on the stolen ancestral territories of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh First Nations. We encourage you to learn more about the history of these Indigenous Peoples and their land. 


We are now accepting brewery donations for our 2021/2022 Diversity In Brewing Award. For more about our scholarship, please click here. If your brewery would like to contribute to the 2021/2022 scholarship to support BIPOC and LGBTQ2S+ brewing students, please contact us at: diversityinbrewing@gmail.com

It is important that BIPOC and LGBTQ2S+ Contributors and Guest Contributors are paid for their work. As a grassroots initiative, we are not sponsored or affiliated with any particular brand or business and rely on community donations to fund our blog and to ensure Contributors are appropriately compensated. If you would like to donate, you may do so through PayPal or e-transfer: diversityinbrewing@gmail.com.
