North Park Beer Company and Maya’s Cookies Team Up for a Pairing Event for Good

San Diego Based, Black-Owned, Female Owned Gourmet Vegan Cookie Company and San Diego craft brewery favorite collaborate on a special pairing that gives back to the community


SAN DIEGO, Calif. – Aug. 18, 2020 San Diego beer connoisseurs with a sweet tooth will be delighted to know that two San Diego favorites are partnering on a specialty pairing that benefits the local community. North Park Beer Co is featuring the "Black Is Beautiful" beer which is a global beer collaboration that was spearheaded by Weathered Souls Brewing, a black owned brewery in San Antonio, TX.


“We’re one of over 1,000 breweries who are participating and 100% of the proceeds of the sales will be going to local not for profit entities Detour, a mentoring program for girls of color and The Blue Heart Foundation that focuses on the education and empowerment of under-served youth ages 13-18 in the greater San Diego County community,” stated Kelsey McNair, Head Brewer and Proprietor of North Park Beer Company. “The beer is an imperial stout and it is vegan, so this is the perfect beer to feature in a collab with Maya's Cookies.”


The following cookies from Maya’s Cookies will be featured as they pair well with Black is Beautiful:

  • Marble Fudge
  • Caramel Pecan

“We are so excited to share Maya’s Cookies with the craft beer community in North Park. We love their beer, their sense of community and frankly, the mission of these local non-profit recipients is so near and dear to my heart that when the opportunity came to partner, I knew this was the perfect fit,” said Maya Madsen, Owner and Founder of Maya’s Cookies.


North Park Beer Company recently re-opened for outdoor dining and the beer & cookie pair will be available as a to-go option. Customers can preorder now and pickup anytime Thursday, August 20th  through Sunday, August 23rd  priced at $12 plus tax and CRV. For details, please visit the North Park Beer Co site.

About North Park Beer Co.
North Park Beer Co. started from humble beginnings in 2004 when Founder & Head Brewer Kelsey McNair began homebrewing beer in his garage. After a decade of honing his skills and winning many brewing accolades, McNair decided it was time to take the leap and build a brewery and taproom in his neighborhood. In 2016, North Park Beer Co. opened the doors to its spacious, arts & crafts styled, patio-fronted venue on University Avenue in the heart of urban San Diego and has since been serving up hop-forward West Coast IPAs, expressive and juicy Hazy IPAs, crispy lagers, bold-flavored full-bodied stouts, and everything in between. Friends and neighbors across California can stop by for fresh and delicious beer poured from our taps, or enjoy at home with our beercommerce pick-up, delivery, or statewide shipping.
