Only the second Black-owned brewery in all of Tennessee, Owners Chico and Mitchell are opening up Ebony & Ivory Brewing!

Our Story

Ebony & Ivory Brewing is a brewing company in Knoxville, TN. We craft approachable beers that we use as a conduit for community change. Through minority representation in business ownership, education of styles of craft beers, and formulating an inclusive/ diverse taproom experience, we focus on altering the assumption of the craft beer industry only being white, bearded men. Owners Chico and Mitchell will be using funds raised from this campaign for expenses related to opening up the taproom.
Our Ambition

Using these funds will give life to this vision we've had since 2017. Construction for our taproom will give a place for conversations to be had with others who come from all walks of life. It will generate a place for all to belly up to a bar and meet someone they've never met before, circumventing the vision of inclusivity, diversity, counterculture communities using beer as our conduit of change. Growth and development funds will allow us to focus on broader outreach of our mission through greater beer production. It will also allow us to immerse ourselves into different communities around us breathing light into other black owned businesses, supporting/sponsoring sports teams in a minority area, influencing work release programs for local jails, giving voices to minority artists by their work in our taproom, etc.
