Wellington Brewery Brings Back Nothing Civil IPA for Black Lives Matter Canada

GUELPH, ON – Two months after it quickly sold out its first appearanceWellington Brewery has announced the return of beer created in collaboration with The Lacuna Collective – poet and Wellington employee Truth Is…, certified beer sommelier Lexi Pham, and Beer. Diversity. founder Ren Navarro – who are “determined to expose current and historical elements that can be made right, so we can all be on the right side of history in the future.”

Nothing Civil IPA (6.5% abv) is described as follows:

This beer is a smooth easy going IPA made with Golden Promise malt, Pacific Jade and Hallertau Blanc hops, and Vermont style yeast. This juicy IPA gives notes of pineapple, passionfruit, lemongrass, citrus, and cracked black pepper while being propped up by the smooth body of the Golden Promise malt.

Did you make a golden promise to yourself to continue to learn and unlearn? To grow and stand up? We support this journey.

Each can of Nothing Civil features the following poem by Truth Is… on the label:

Everything you can see about us has been recognized as suspicious
has been diagnosed as a threat
has been taught to be feared
Our skin is Loraine’s Raisin in the Sun just as much as it is Rodney’s spilled blood in the moonlight
Our skin is Nina on the stage
Our skin is Diallo reaching for his wallet
Our skin is Martin holding skittles
Our skin is Malcolm speaking at the podium
Our skin is Vincent and Wayne on their podiums
Our skin is the real McCoy
Our skin is Emmett’s face
Our skin is Mamie’s face at his funeral
Our skin is jogging
Our skin is sleeping
Our skin is Rosa on the bus
Our skin is Nelson’s prison sentence
Our skin is Sandra’s prison sentence
Our skin is breathing
Our skin is calling our mothers
Our skin is not resisting
Our skin is not resisting
Our skin is not resisting
Our skin is resistance

Nothing Civil IPA is available now at the Wellington Brewery retail store and online shop. 100% of the proceeds will be donated to Black Lives Matter Canada.
