Our home borough of Brooklyn is all about celebrating differences. Brooklyn Brewery strives to create spaces, in person and online, that are safe, accessible, inclusive and respectful. We want every person, whatever their background or identity, to feel safe to be themselves in those spaces.
We expect that everyone in both our physical and digital spaces upholds the same welcoming values. Disrespectful, discriminatory, or threatening behavior will not be tolerated. If you feel that your personal biases are more important than another person’s peaceful existence, feel free to drink something else.
We are actively working towards an inclusive and equitable future, and welcome everyone who wants to join us.
We want all members of our online community to feel comfortable and join in our conversations. We will remove any harmful content, including:
- Abusive, discriminatory, disrespectful or threatening language or behavior.
- Repetitive comments, spam or commercial solicitations.
- Targeting users in a way that makes them uncomfortable.
- Explicit language or content.
We monitor our social channels carefully and try to respond as quickly as possible, but we don’t always spot things immediately. Therefore, we hope all our community will feel able to flag when something doesn’t seem right. If you see comments or content that make you feel uncomfortable, tell us about it. No member of our community should feel excluded from our space by those with bad intentions.
Through our partnership with The Stonewall Inn Gives Back Initiative (SIGBI), we are creating space to amplify the voices of LGBTQ+ activists, who – like those before them at The Stonewall Inn – are continuing the fight for equality, acceptance and the space to be who you are.
#Createspace is our way to be there for queer communities as allies and comrades. Not just when it’s easy or convenient but 365 days of the year. We hope that LGBTQ+ communities will use our social channels to talk about their lives and their activism. This is also a space for allies and comrades to learn about the issues facing LGBTQ+ communities and find out how they can support activists in their fight.
Any instances of hate or bullying towards LGBTQ+ people, including slurs, deliberate misgendering, racism, or threats, will be reported and removed.
We create space – we don’t tolerate hate.
