Pride-Inspired Cocktails & Beers To Try in Raleigh This Pride Month

Celebrate LGBTQIA+ communities with these Pride-inspired bevs in Raleigh.

“Be you, do you, celebrate you”—and cheers to you with these Pride-inspired cocktails and beers from bars and breweries around Raleigh. Ah, we love love… and another reason to have a drink this month!

The Willard Rooftop

Twist and shout your love of all humans from the The Willard Rooftop with its Twist & Out cocktail in partnership with the LGBT Center of Raleigh! The special cocktail—made with housemade creamy limoncello, raspberry and rainbow sprinkles—will be available Friday, June 17, through Sunday, June 26. The cherry—er rainbow flag-pick—on top? A portion of proceeds from the cocktail will be donated to the center.

Trophy Brewing Co.

Show the LGBTQIA+ community they’ve got a partner in you by snagging a four-pack of the local-fave brewing co.’s returning Trophy Partner brew—a medium-bodied IPA with a classic dry-hop selection of Citra and Cascade—in celebration of Pride Month. With each four-pack sold, $1 will be donated to the LGBT Center of Raleigh! 

Crank Arm Brewing Company

Drink ale month long with Crank Arm in collab with the LGBT Center of Raleigh. Its special-edition P(RIDE) pale ale tastes as good as it looks in its colorful Pride flag-inspired can (!).

Libations 317

Cheers to Pride Month—martini- or shot-style—with Libations 317’s Rainbow Lemondrop, a refreshing sipper with lemon vodka, fresh lime juice and simple syrup—plus a rainbow-sugared rim, natch. We’ll drink to that!

Clouds Brewing

Cloud and proud! The brew spot’s newest Silver Linings charity collaboration, Cloud and Proud—brewed in partnership with Stonewall Sports and Crape Myrtle Festival—is an easy-drinking, juicy kolsch with a generous amount of grapefruit, with 20% of all sales donated to the two LGBTQ+ nonprofits.
