Drop Bear Beer celebrates pride month with Galop

Drop Bear has released its first limited edition to celebrate pride month and support the UK’s LGBT+ anti-abuse charity, Galop.

LGBT+ founders and married couple, Joelle and Sarah Drummond were the subject of a hate crime in 2022. This event served as a stark reminder to the couple of the importance of visibility and representation, leading to an ongoing charity partnership with Galop.

“True Colours is more than just a beer, it’s a reminder that we should all help create a world in which everyone is safe to show their true colours.” Shared Joelle Drummond, Co-Founder of Drop Bear Beer Co.

“We have a diverse team at Drop Bear and whilst we celebrate pride 365 days a year, we’re so excited to do something special for Pride 2024. As one of very few LGBT+ breweries in the UK, we feel a responsibility to promote the inclusivity and diversity that can exist within the brewing world.”

Amy Roch, Interim CEO of LGBT+ anti-abuse charity, Galop, said: “We’re so grateful that Drop Bear Beer’s Pride beer will feature Galop’s National Hate Crime Helpline number.”

“Through our frontline services, Galop supports thousands of LGBT+ abuse and violence survivors every year. At a time when LGBT+ people are facing higher levels of abuse and violence, Drop Bear Beer are helping us to provide a lifeline for those in need.”
