Things We Don't Say is a hazy IPA collaboration supporting mental health awareness, dialogue, and hopefully...recovery.
The initiave is led by @eagleparkbrewing, a number of great sponsors, and nearly 200 breweries across the globe in support of @hopefortheday and other nonprofits focused on mental well-being.
We don't talk about mental health very well as a society. The craft beer and food and beverage industry is no exception. If anything, it's historically been worse.
#thingswedontsayipa aims to create space, dialogue, and opportunity to discuss these critical topics.
Yes, it's a beer. And it may not be for everyone. But over a beer is where many of us gather. Dialogue around wellness shouldn't be sequestered or squelched.
In fact, we should encourage the conversation over a beer for those who choose to drink.
A portion of proceeds support @hopefortheday. But our true hope is that the bigger impact will be improved dialogue around mental health, and, as the organizers say, a recognition that it's okay to not be okay.
