How Pilot Project Lowers Barriers in Beer and Beyond

Chicago-based Pilot Project’s goal is to provide women- and BIPOC-led companies with the kind of investment, production, and marketing opportunities they have long been excluded from in business. Pilot Project has worked to diversify beverage alcohol in the past three years by helping launch and nurture a dozen new brands. 

As part of the Diversity in Beer Writing Grant series, Amber Gibson wrote a story profiling the people and companies who’ve benefited from this partnership and how Pilot Project works to support diversity and inclusion in alcohol.
