Fresh Fest in the nation’s first Black beer festival and second best in the nation, according to USA Today. The annual event showcases the country’s most talented Black brewers, along with breweries from across the globe in collaboration with Black artists, entrepreneurs, politicians, and business owners.
These imaginative partnerships include brew collaborations, label designs, and/or food pairings for a new beer released exclusively at Fresh Fest. Established in 2018 by the Drinking Partners and Black Brew Culture, Fresh Fest attracts thousands of craft beer industry veterans and connoisseurs as well as novices from across the country to enjoy unique beers, ciders, and spirits while celebrating the Black diaspora.
But Fresh Fest is more than just a festival; it is a community initiative that seeks to economically empower the Black community by promoting and providing access, opportunities, and representation in a $119B industry with less than 1% Black ownership or employment. To accomplish these goals, Fresh Fest offers symposiums, live events featuring Black artists and musicians, digital education, and community outreach programs, to name a few.
