Brewjeria Native

I will be reviewing beers from Bow & Arrow, the first Native woman-owned and operated brewery in the US. But SoCal beer fans can head to Brewjeria for a recipe collaboration beer that was released on the 18th.

“Native Land is a West Coast IPA at 6.1% ABV adapted from the original Bow & Arrow recipe and will be available on tap and in four packs. Our version of this delicious brew recognizes the ancestral land of the Tongva People. We will be donating a portion of proceeds from sales to the California Tribal Fund of the First Nations Development Institute.”

Native Land

Don’t know how I missed it but in addition to the Black is Beautiful and Brave Noise beers, there is also the Native Land project .  It too is a national collaboration.  The beers done for this project aims to acknowledge the contributions and history of Native American People in the United States. It is the brainchild of New Mexico brewery, Bow & Arrow who announced the project on Indigenous Peoples Day back in October.  “Each brewery who chooses to participate is asked to acknowledge whose ancestral land they are located on and recognize the tribe on the label, while committing to donate proceeds from the beer sales to Native organizations whose work focuses on ecological stewardship and strengthening Native communities.”

Bow and Arrow founders Shyla Sheppard who is part of the Mandan, Hidatsa & Arikara Nation, and her wife Missy Begay of the Navajo (Diné) Nation started the project and I hope like the others, the beers get people talking.

Below is the Ruse Brewing version…
