The Beer

Abolitionist Imperial Stout

Abolitionist Imperial Stout is all about breaking barriers. With molasses and coconut, this beer breaks the mold of traditional stouts and punches up the flavor. Brewed for Juneteenth in partnership with our friends from Brewz Brothaz and Detroit Black Farmer Land Fund, this beer is a celebration of resilience and achievement.

Both Brewz Brothaz and Detroit Black Farmer Land Fund are organizations committed to supporting Black excellence by continuing to create and grow spaces for the Black community. From Brewz Brothaz’ growing network of Black and brown beer drinkers to Detroit Black Farmer Land Fund’s grassroots funding movement for Black land sovereignty, these friends are making real change.

Abolitionist pays homage to Juneteenth and the barriers our friends continue to break everyday. Every can purchase supports Detroit Black Farmer Land Fund in their goal to help Black farmers in Detroit purchase land.

Rex’s Dry Hopped Saison

An ode to a classic, Rex’s Dry Hopped Saison was crafted by brewers for brewers. Rex wanted to make a beer the crew could enjoy together; an easy-drinking sipper with summertime vibes to drink throughout the day. And this tropical funky boi with Michigan Copper hops fits the bill.
Like this saison, good beer is all about a brewer’s interpretation. And for Rex, the best brews always lead to a pint shared between friends.
