Looking to support Black-owned businesses? We’ve rounded up highly-rated Black-owned businesses in the alcohol industry across North America to support now, and every day. The businesses below are listed in no particular order and range from a wine bar in Rochester, NY to a distillery in Denver, CO making spirits from neighboring produce.
Earlier this year, Yelp launched a searchable attribute that allows businesses to self-identify as Black-owned. The new searchable Black-owned business attribute is free and opt-in only, as the decision to self-identify as Black-owned should rest solely with the business.
Yelp Tip: “a big shout out for easy navigation, great descriptions and other information regarding wines and spirits, as well as selections, and notations for Black-owned wineries and spirit makers.” Yelp Elite Lora R.
Yelp tip: “I love a smooth and fresh vodka and they make the best, brewed in house vodka. I ended up buying three bottles (two lavender and one pom rose). They mix really well and are also perfect chilled straight.” – Angela H.
Yelp tip: “They are all about community, which I love! You can find shelves stacked with board games and they also have a few picnic tables outside on the patio with corn hole boards. They definitely have the atmosphere down!” – Yelper Shelby C.
