Drawing inspiration from similar movements, this collaboration is committed to highlighting the rich heritage and craftsmanship that these brewers bring to the forefront.
City Built Brewing Company in Grand Rapids, Michigan, is embarking on a heartfelt mission to recognize and honor the contributions of Latino and Hispanic brewers in the brewing industry. Inspired by similar movements, Mi Gente is dedicated to shining a spotlight on the rich cultural tapestry and craftsmanship that these brewers bring to the forefront.
This is more than a brewing venture; it's a commitment to giving back. A portion of the proceeds will be dedicated to worthy causes that empower communities. The initial partner in this journey is Somos Comunidad. The Somos Comunidad Fund, led by Latino community members, was established by the Grand Rapids Community Foundation.
We invite breweries that share our vision to join us in this mission. By participating, breweries can contribute their unique artistic touch and direct the proceeds toward a cause that resonates within their local community. Together, we can make a tangible difference.
The first collaboration will be with Batch Brewing Co. in Detroit, led by Production Manager Eric Plata. These collaborative beers will make their debut in the taprooms of both City Built Brewing and Batch Brewing on October 27, 2023. Beer enthusiasts can also look forward to these beers at the Michigan Brewers Guild 14th Annual Detroit Fall Beer Festival on October 28, 2023
We warmly welcome contributions from individuals and organizations alike. By supporting our mission, you are not only savoring exceptional beer but also actively fostering unity, diversity, and generosity within our communities.
