Vennture Brew Co Donates $5,000 to the African American Chamber of Commerce of WI
Proceeds Generated from sales of the Black is Beautiful Stout
Milwaukee (December 1, 2020) Vennture Brew Co, a brewery and coffee roaster at 5519 W. North Avenue in Washington Heights, recently donated $5,000 to the African American Chamber of Commerce of Wisconsin. The Chamber champions the growth and sustainability of African American-owned businesses.
Vennture Brew Co joined other local breweries, including 1840 Brew, Broken Bat, the Fermentorium, and Third Space, in creating its own version of the Black is Beautiful stout for this fundraiser. Marcus Baskerville, head brewer and founder of black-owned Weathered Souls Brewing in San Antonio, TX, released the recipe for the Black is Beautiful imperial stout in June to inspire breweries across the nation to support the black community in this time of critical need. Vennture Brew Co joined its peers to reinvest its proceeds in the local economy.
Said Ossie Kendrix, President of the African American Chamber of Commerce of Wisconsin, “We are thrilled that Vennture Brew Co believes so strongly in us to make this donation. As we work closely with small business, we understand the blood, sweat and tears that entrepreneurs sacrifice to make their businesses succeed. This has been a challenging year for the Chamber and those we serve; donations like this affirm the value of our work.”
