Young Melbourne brewpub Stomping Ground has joined forces with Midsumma Festival to create a beer designed to help support artists within LGBTQIA+ communities. The festival is Victoria's premier queer arts and cultural festival, running from January 15 to February 5, and also runs Midsumma Futures, a year long mentoring programme. The beer is PRIDElweiss, a Belgian style wheat beer brewed with peaches and 50 cents from every pot sold around Melbourne during the festival will be donated to the programme.
“It is important to us that we are meaningfully engaged in our community and we thought brewing PRIDElweiss was a great way for us to celebrate, and raise funds for, an exciting aspect of Melbourne’s culture,” says Stomping Ground co-founder Steve Jeffares.
