Brewed to support ACLU in their mission to protect civil liberties for all Americans, People Power is a nationwide collab that celebrates the unique privilege of self-determination we strive to protect for all Americans. This election had record turnout, which is a fact worth celebrating regardless of politics.

Most of the dozens of other versions of People Power (led by our friends @threesbrewing and @peoplepowerbeer) were released before Election Day. We had planned to release this beer two weeks ago, but instead we watched with shock and horror as the US Capitol was stormed by a violent mob of homegrown terrorists. Democracy is not always a straightforward or elegant affair, but that was absolutely beyond the pale. Clearly we have a lot of healing and growth to do as a nation. We are proud to be an open and affirming brewery, and will continue our work in 2021 and beyond. As John Lewis noted (see can-bottom), “we must be our own legacy.”

Papaya-mandarin fusion peacefully yields to a crush of pineapple, lychee, and guava. Throngs of tropical flavor constituents exercise their vote on your taste buds. The impressions they cast are as diverse and wonderful as the electorate. They meld together to form the very fabric of democracy. We lift our cans alongside their harmonious voices and celebrate the power of the people to determine the future course of their ever more juicy union.
