Once again, several breweries around the Pacific Northwest are stepping up for Pride Month and have released (will release) special beers for Pride Month. Many of these beers support non-profits and other community organizations. I will update this list as I learn more information. Send info to me via email or DM me on Instagram or Facebook. Most of the images and descriptions were lifted from Instagram.

Georgetown Brewing

Georgetown Brewing, pride beer.

O-69 IPA takes its name from the infamous call out at Gay Bingo, a tradition that started in Seattle as a way to raise funds for Chicken Soup Brigade (now Lifelong), a nonprofit supporting people living with HIV/AIDS. The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence hosted the first Gay Bingo in 1992, and since then you can find Gay Bingo being played around the world.

100% of beer proceeds will benefit the following orgs:
-Lavender Rights Project, an organization committed to providing social and legal advocacy for Black gender diverse people across Washington State.
-Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, an organization that educates the public on safer sex issues, fights for queer rights and visibility, addresses women’s issues and the needs of homeless youth.
-Lifelong, an organization that delivers food, housing, and health services to people living with chronic illnesses, including HIV and AIDS.

Reuben’s Brews

Reuben's Brews pride beer.

During the month of June, you will see special edition Pride Crikey cans at your favorite retailers that we produced to celebrate and support this important cause. A portion of the sales proceeds will go to support Seattle Pride and its mission to create unity, honor diversity, and achieve equal human rights throughout our region and the world. Cheers to that!

Aslan Brewing

Aslan Brewing pride beer.

Pride Month is almost here! We’re too excited and we couldn’t wait one more day to release this beer!
We’re stoked that B Proud is back for its sixth year in a row. This Hazy IPA has an aromatic punch of pineapple and grapefruit. Flavors of apricot, pine, grapefruit pith, and sweet orange shine through a smooth body bolstered by a high percentage of wheat. A drying bitterness balances the fuller mouthfeel creating a balanced and refreshing IPA. Proceeds from B Proud will go to @nwyouthservices and their Queer Youth Services.

Bale Breaker Brewing

Bale Breaker Brewing pride beer.

Lady Sparkle Haze, our annual Pride beer, is tapping TODAY in Yakima and FRIDAY in Ballard! This Hazy IPA was a collaboration with our friends @yakimapride – $1 per pint will be donated to their organization. June is Pride Month, and this month and EVERY month, we stand in solidarity with our friends, neighbors and colleagues who are forging their own paths around who to love and how to live with joy and integrity. We hope you’ll join us in raising a pint to love! 

Logan Brewing


More than a beer for pride, a big party – June 8th. “Next weekend it’s time for another block party in celebration of Burien Pride! We’re taking over our block, adding a ton of covered seating, and releasing two very special beers for pride! We’re releasing Burien Pride 2024 our Tangerine Blonde ale as well as Rainbow Phoenix a new West Coast Pilsner! Come join us in our family friendly beer garden and toast in celebration of Pride! Free entry, family & dog friendly! Thanks @burienpride”

Stoup Brewing

Pride beers from Stoup Brewing.
Stoup Brewing does multiple beers for Pride each year.

We always have fun on production days but my gosh, adding bubbles to the mix certainly took it up a notch! For those of y’all who have been with us for a few years now you know that come Pride Month we always like to set aside some time to craft up a few extra special brews with proceeds supporting a local non-profit / charity. This year we have decided to work with @prideplaceseattle who provide affordable housing for adults ages 55+ in the heart of Capitol Hill. Get out and help support when buying yourself a pour of Rainbow Bubbles IPA on draft or in cans.

Hellbent Brewing

Hellbent Brewing pride beer.

Pride And (No) Prejudice Summer Golden Ale – Let your flags fly and celebrate Pride! Well, maybe a different kind of pride than what the Jane Austen novel was referring to, but the message still resonates in a different context. Not only is this light bodied golden ale perfect for the summer, it’s also raising money for Seattle’s LGBTQ+ Center, who provide a wide range of health and human services for the community. We made PNP Summer Golden nice and mild, a little grassy, with a subtle citrus hop character, without being too bitter. In other words, it’s meant to be enjoyed by everyone. If some prejudices get dispelled while you’re drinking it, so much the better! On tap and in cans to go!

Fair Isle Brewing


Fair Isle Brewing is hosting a Pride Vendors Market on June 8th from 12:00 pm to 4:00 pm. The Brewery invited talented LGBTQ+ vendors to showcase their artwork and goods. Fair Isle Brewing will serve a Pride edition of their beloved Bobbi beer all month. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Seattle LGBTQ+ Center. Bobbi is a hoppy saison with loads of zippy tangerine and bright lemon zest on the palate, with a refreshing dry and tart finish.

El Sueñito Brewing

El Suenito Brewing pride beer.

Our annual Pride beer Un Poco Gay Hazy IPA has arrived! This month we celebrate the vibrant diversity, strength and contributions of the LGBTQA+ community. It’s a time to honor the courageous trailblazers who have paved the way for greater visibility and equality. Stop by today or sometime this month and support Washington’s first gay & Mexican-owned brewery. A portion of proceeds will be donated to a couple local NGOs working with the LGBTQA+ community.

Boundary Bay Brewery

Boundary Bay Brewery pride beer.

Introducing Found Family West Coast Pilsner – this year’s rendition of our annual Pride brew and a celebration of queer love of all kinds! Brewed with pride, this hop-forward Pilsner features a bounteous dry-hop of Mandarina Bavaria, and Citra hops, uniting brilliant aromas of nectarine, citrus, and pine. Join us in raising a glass to love in all its beautiful forms. Available on draft and in cans at the brewery!
