Queer Brewing releases Pride Pils to raise funds for LGBTQ+ charity, Opening Doors

Graham Robson May 23, 2023

Queer Brewing, which was founded to provide visibility and representation for LGBTQ+ people in and around beer, is releasing their first Pride-focused beer Pride Pils in June to celebrate Pride Month and help raise money for LGBTQ+ charity, Opening Doors, which connects LGBTQ+ people aged over 50 with activities, events, support and information.

Opening Doors

Whilst Queer Brewing believe that Pride should be celebrated every day and that every month is Pride Month, this year they’re celebrating Pride with their “unofficial beer of Pride”, an easy-drinking, crisp, and refreshing 5.2% ABV Pilsner.

Pride Pils is a Czech-inspired pilsner made by queers that will be raising both awareness of inequality for LGTBQ+ people still rampant in society. Ten per cent of profits will be donated to Opening Doors.

Lily Waite, Queer Brewing founder, says: “I’ve long maintained that for both myself, as a queer trans woman, and so many LGBTQ+ people every month is Pride Month, but that doesn’t mean we can’t do something extra special for June. This year we’re throwing ourselves into the spirit of Pride, supporting local and regional Pride events all over the country with a range of mini-events all over, taking part in the Ask for Clive’s Pub Pride as their national beer partner, and releasing our very own Pride Pils.

“We’re so excited to launch this Czech-inspired pilsner and to see the beer go out to pubs, bars, bottleshops, and other venues across the country, for our nationwide launch on June 2, and even more excited to be supporting such a fantastic charity with this beer.”
