We toasted to a future free of sexual discrimination and hate

It is the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia today. Exactly 28 years ago, the World Health Organization decided to remove homosexuality from its International Classification of Diseases. As we all know this did not mean that homosexuality was instantly accepted. Hate and violence against people with a different sexual orientation or gender identity are still a sad reality today.

As many others, we like to make it clear that discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity is totally unacceptable. Hence those rainbow flags next to our breweries today. We toast to a future free of hate and sexual discrimination. Cheers.

    Hi I was in Amsterdam recently and enjoyed a bottle of Ijwit. I live in Leeds West Yorkshire England, where we have a good real ale/craft beer scene, but have not been able to locate a place that sells this beer. Do you supply to any where in England (preferably The North)? Apologies this is in English!. Best wishes Steve
