Brew this beer to help those impacted by the war in Ukraine



RESIST Ukrainian Anti-Imperial Stout, a campaign to help the people of Ukraine.

Until now, the only news stories I’ve seen involving beer and the Russian invasion of Ukraine have been hollow-hearted clickbait. I won’t even reference them here. This story also involves beer and the war in Ukraine, but I have not published it for any disingenuous reasons. My only purpose is to inform you about how you can actually help people impacted by the war, to tell you about the #DrinkersForUkraine campaign, which invites brewers and imbibers around the world to pledge their support.

“In solidarity with friends and colleagues in Ukraine, we’re coming together to raise funds for the Red Cross humanitarian relief effort in Ukraine following the Russian invasion in February 2022,” says a statement from the Drinkers For Ukraine campaign.

The campaign is spearheaded by, among others, Lana Svitankova, a writer, translator, educator, and Ukraine’s first-ever Certified Cicerone. Breweries interested in participating can learn more here.

The short version is that this is a collaborative brewing program. Brew a beer, a RESIST Ukrainian Anti-Imperial Stout, and donate proceeds to the Red Cross relief efforts in Ukraine. The campaign provides a basic recipe that was created by brewers in Ukraine. See it here. Also, they ask participants to help raise funds in other ways, like hosting online auctions.

On March 26, the #DrinkersForUkraine campaign will culminate in a live-streamed fundraising event. Media figures from the adult beverage industry will host the event, which will feature interviews and videos from brewers and people involved in the Ukrainian beer industry. Along with that, prize-givings and raffles for online attendees.
