Six Local Drinks to Celebrate the LGBT+ Community

Celebrate Pride Month and support the LGBT+ Community with these local beers and cocktails.

Beauty is in the eye of the beer-holder! Raise your spirits and celebrate Pride Month with these Pride-inspired drinks from local bars and breweries. Cheers to love—particularly the love of booze (!).

Trophy Brewing

Why be salty when you can be malty? The local brewery is celebrating Pride Month with a fresh batch of Trophy Partner, which features vibrant flavors of citrus zest, red berries and fresh melon. Proceeds will benefit both Raleigh Pride and the LGBT Center of Raleigh. We’ll drink to that! 

Wye Hill

Give ’em hill! Join Wye for a pint of its medium-bodied Luminous Beings hazy pale ale (featuring a cute floral can)—or take a pack home to show your pride all month long. The sippin’ is easy when $1 from every can purchased is donated to the LGBT Center of Raleigh! 

Libations 317

Feeling bubbly? Show your true colors and sip on Libation 317’s Pride Month rainbow Champagne flight (Sunday brunch has never been so vibrant!). Or, drop it like it’s hot with the Rainbow Lemon Drop Martini featuring a rainbow sprinkle rim (!). 

Whiskey Kitchen

Just as long as you stand—stand bi me. Whiskey Kitchen’s Stand Bi Me cocktail features Bombay Sapphire gin combined with lime juice, orange blossom water, coconut rum and a housemade raspberry mango syrup for a fruity, refreshing bev fit for all. 

Crank Arm Brewing 

Looks gay, we’re in. Crank Arm has brought back its P(RIDE) pale ale in collaboration with the LGBT Center of Raleigh. Ale yeah!

Clouds Brewing

This is how we brew it! Join Clouds Brewing in the pursuit of hoppiness this month with the return of its colorful grapefruit kolsch Cloud and Proud, a portion of proceeds from which will benefit the LGBT Center of Durham. Pro tip: Enjoy it at Cloud Raleigh’s drag brunch June 25 and drag dinner June 29. #Slay!
