Heart and Soul for Proud Beer

Heart and Soul for Proud Beer

Proud has our community in it’s heart and soul. Proud is a way of doing things which means each time someone chooses Proud, they are making a direct donation to our LGBT+ charity partners. No percentage of profits, no corporate jargon, just a straightforward donation from every single bottle, so they can continue the invaluable work they do in our community.

Our Vision

We believed a business could be created to benefit our community and to provide a platform to showcase and support their life changing work.

We work with responsible suppliers to create a high quality product which we sell in order to benefit causes from tackling homophobia in schools to sexual health services across the country.

Proud is not a label, it’s a statement. Proud is who we are, and what we do.

Our Beer

Our beer is microbrewed and bottled here in the UK (just outside of Harrogate). We chose a golden pale ale, with citrus and elderflower hints. It’s fresh, it’s crisp, and we’re pretty damn proud of it.

Every so slightly crafty, we made sure we chose the best product to launch our brand.

Our Charitable Partners

Although we love it very much, beer isn’t exactly groundbreaking. The work our charities do however, is. That’s why 20p from every bottle of PROUD goes directly to them, so they can continue making our community something to be even more proud of. We currently work with:

The LGBT Foundation - serves over 40,000 people and provide information to a further 200,000 online. As a result, they provide more services to more LGBT people than any other charity of their kind in the UK.

Terrence Higgins Trust - at the forefront of the fight against HIV and improving the nation’s sexual health.

Diversity Role Models - work in schools to tackle homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying; a major factor in self harm and suicide among LGBT children and young people.

Contact Ethan Spibey ethan@proud.beer for any enquiries.

Also watch out for the team at the NQ Makers Market Sunday 8th April.
