Black is Beautiful

The Black is Beautiful initiative is a collaborative effort among the brewing community and its customers that was spearheaded by the Weathered Souls brewery in San Antonio, in an attempt to bring awareness to the injustices that many people of color face daily. We’ll be donating 15% of every purchase of this recipe to Know Your Rights Camp.

About Bitter & Esters


Can't recommend this place enough. As a beginner homebrewer this was my go to place for supplies. The staff are great and extremely knowledgeable about the brewing process, ingredients, and equipment. If you are thinking of getting into brewing this is the place to visit.

Bitter & Esters is one of the best kept secrets of NYC and honestly it makes me so happy that shops like this still exist in this city. I did the homebrewing 101 class and had a blast and learnt so much. I felt so inspired that I came home and immediately started brewing my own batch

Mariano C.

Great place to visit if you're getting into homebrewing or even if you know what you're doing. The staff is extremely helpful and will walk you through the process and even give you suggestions on whatever ideas you may have.
