Things We Don’t Say

New England Style IPA

The purpose of this beer is to make en effort to break the silence around mental health in the craft beer industry, and to remind brewers and consumers: “ It’s ok not to be ok”.

We’ve all struggled with our own mental health issues and have friends, family and colleagues who have also suffered or are suffering from mental health issues right now. These issues are not easy to address, especially by yourself. To anyone reading this just know that you’re never alone. No matter what you’re going through or how dark it is you are never alone. There are people out there who are there to help and have been in similar situations or can connect you with people that can help you through whatever it is you’re facing.

It’s so important that we are there for each other and that you reach out to your friends, family, colleagues whoever and check in on them. It’s important that we educate ourselves and those around us so we can recognize when others are struggling and may need our help. Just remember that you are loved, you’re important, you’re not alone and it’s ok not to be ok.
