Most people are well aware of the fact that Caitlyn Jenner has dominated the transgender news headlines over the past several months. That’s all well and good, but here at Chew Boom, our crew has some other transgender news to report, and it comes in a brown bottle. Kölsch beer, AKA No Label – is being touted at the world’s first transgender beer.
UK’s BrewDog plans to launch the new brew this week to coincide with the opening of the company’s new BrewDog bar in London’s Soho district – known for its gay friendly venues.
No Label is brewed with hops that have changed sex from female to male flowers prior to harvest. BrewDog says they used these hops to emphasise that, just like humans, “beer can be whatever the hell it wants to be, and proud of it.”
Profits from the sale of No Label will go to LGBTQI+ organization Queerest of the Queer, an organization that celebrates the diversity and talent of the LGBTQI+ community.
“We are donating all profits from the sale of No Label to Queerest of the Queer to in turn support charities aiding transgender youth communities,” BrewDog said in a statement on their website.
