GAL APPROVED! Black-Owned Beer and Maison Noir Wines! Plus: Nail Fun!By The DivaGals | July 24, 2020 | Gal Approved
DRINK. We’re supporting our brothers and sisters in their black-owned businesses, and discovering so many incredible brands, like Maison Noir Wines. Founded by sommelier André Hueston Mack in 2007, this small winery in Oregon puts out its own labeled garage wines (which means small, high-end batches). We had to order a bottle of O.P.P. – Other People’s Pinot Noir, described as having “earthy, spicy, floral, herb-framed flavors of cherry with gingery wood spice tones.” It goes down smoothly and pairs nicely with a piece of salted caramel dark chocolate, yum! Order your bottle from their website for $25.
SIP. Grab a beer and support black brewers and our community! Texas’ Weathered Souls Brewing Company has launched a collaborative “Black Is Beautiful” beer project with more than 150 breweries across the country brewing a special stout, with proceeds destined for social justice causes. In the Bay Area, the brewery list includes Gilman Brewing, Loma Brewing, Almanac and more. Click this link to discover brewers all across the country.
