Lead by Rooftop Brewing in Seattle, a number of breweries have now signed on to the Beer Trumps Hate campaign, pledging to brew kindhearted beers that raise funds for a number of Washington non-profit organizations. In the coming months, expect to see beers and events around the area that support worthwhile causes like environmental stewardship, refugee support services, and domestic violence victims support services.
Rooftop Brewing Company just announced the release of Imp. Peach Mint IPA, the latest beer in the Beer Trumps Hate campaign. Throughout the month of January, the brewery will donate proceeds from the sale of the beer to Washington Wild as part of that organization’s Brewshed Alliance initative. In addition to the beer, Rooftop will also donate proceeds from the sale of Beer Trumps Hate T-shirts and stickers at its tasting room (1220 W. Nickerson St., Seattle) and on its website: http://www.beertrumpshate.com.
The brewery describes the beer: “Imp. Peach Mint IPA (8.8% ABV, 72 IBU) was brewed with Azacca Hops and real peach puree to provide a wonderful bouquet tropical fruit and peach flavors. Fresh mint was used in the dry-hops to give a more effervescent character, but mostly to complete the allegory. Imp. Peach Mint IPA will be sold in bars and restaurants throughout the Seattle area, as well as in Rooftop’s tasting room.”
To highlight the Beer Trumps Hate campaign, and to raise additional money, several local bars and restaurants will host Imp. Peach Mint IPA events over the next month. Washington Wild will have representatives at each event to provide information about their mission and introduce opportunities to help support their work protecting the watersheds that provide Washington’s breweries with the clean water they need to make great beer.
At the events, Imp Peach Mint IPA and associated Beer Trumps Hate swag will be available for purchase with the proceeds going to Washington Wild.

About Beer Trumps Hate
Beer Trumps Hate was started in 2017 by Rooftop Brewing Company in response to the negative rhetoric pervasive in the national political environment. Rooftop believes that beer and community go hand in hand. This concern has motivated Rooftop to use its beer, space, and the beer drinking community to do something to bring people together in the name of love of beer! Under the Beer Trumps Hate campaign, each month a different local craft brewery will brew a beer to benefit a local non-profit organization of their choosing. The Beer Trumps Hate campaign social media and swag will be used to promote awareness and raise additional funds for that organization – and drink some delicious beer along the way! http://www.beertrumpshate.com
