Tha CommUNITY American Lager was contributed by April Dove, a homebrewer in South Carolina, using her brewing education to make a difference in the brewing community.
In 2021, Dove (also known as The Traveling Hoptista) started a multi-brew initiative to offer a more diverse and inclusive taproom experience throughout the tri-county Charleston region. These efforts led her to release an American lager (Tha CommUNITY) in partnership with Holy City Brewing, becoming the first Black woman to do so.
Her career highlights not only include brewing a flavorful and inclusive beer, but also inspiring the City of North Charleston to recognize October 1st annually as Tha CommUNITY Day. April loves what she does, and hopes to diversify the palate of her community one beer at a time, follow her at @thacommunity.brew.
This simple and delicious American lager is an approachable first step into lagering, since the temperature can easily be achieved with something like a cold water bath, towel, and fan.
