Eighty-Eight makes beer for everyone!
We continually work to create, build and foster a craft beer community that upholds inclusivity, equality and safe spaces for all. We recognize the history and limited representation within the brewing and beer industry and hope to impart actions that make it exciting and accessible for everyone.
Eighty-Eight is an ally and supporter of the LGBTQ2A+ community. Throughout the year, we support community efforts, fundraising, team knowledge sharing and attend amazing events put on by our local organizations.
We are a member of the Trans Affirming Network. We work to be a safe and inclusive space for trans and gender-diverse folks by committing to actions including the use of gender-neutral language, offering inclusive facilities and making a commitment to acknowledge and grow from mistakes.
We continually work to support women and non-binary focused initiatives and organizations. Every year we make a fundraising beer in support of International Women's Day including a brew day that focuses on education and career growth opportunities for our team.
Eighty-Eight is an active member of the Hop Forward Society, an Alberta organization that works in pursuit of a diverse, inclusive, equitable, and accessible craft beer industry including grants, networking and education opportunities.
