Black brewers are part of a multibillion-dollar business but represent less than 1% of its earnings, in an industry where U.S. craft beer sales are already steadily declining, as reported by The New York Times in 2019.
Now, those Black brewers – along with business owners and influencers – are working hard to redefine the future of craft beer across the nation.

“One Pint at a Time,” a documentary produced by Aaron Hose and his wife, Bridgette Hose, shares the stories of minority craft brewers as they challenge preconceived notions about who drinks – and brews – beer.
The couple realized the need for raising awareness of Black brewers after visiting multiple breweries and discovering they were usually among the very few, if not the only, people of color in the taprooms. Hose said his curiosity and desire to understand that lack of diversity led him to create the film.
