Right Proper Brewing Releasing SAY THEIR NAMES on Friday to Support Black Lives Matter


DC’s own Right Proper Brewing Co., which collaborated with Barred in DC to brew the still-available, popular Beered in DC, is doing something way more awesome.

On Friday, June 5th, the brewery will be releasing SAY THEIR NAMES, a limited release kellerbier. 100% of profits will be going to BLACK LIVES MATTER DC. At the risk of stating the obvious, this is based on the #SAYTHEIRNAMES hashtag to make sure people say and remember the names of black people who are murder victims of police brutality and other racial violence. Several of these names are on the label of the 750mL bottle.

The 5.0% ABV kellerbier (which is a German lager) will be available for sale from the Shaw brewpub and the Brookland production facility (not available at bars or in retailers).

SAY THEIR NAMES will be available in draft form pints to go/on patio ($6), 750mL flip-top bottles ($12), and 64 oz. growler fills ($17 + $15 for flip-top growler glass if you want one). Due to limited supplies, only 144 750mL bottles were produced, and they’re asking you to limit your purchase to 1 bottle per order.

Expect the bottles to be sold out in first day or two and the beer to gone pretty soon after. Note that originally RP was going to donate some of the profits to ACLU of DC but ACLU asked that all the donations goto BLM. Employees working will be donating 100% of their tips to BLM as well.
