BIPoC Après

a·près /ˌäprā /noun

The social activities and entertainment following a day’s activity.

Après doesn’t mean any one specific activity, instead it’s a chance to relax, laugh with friends, and tell tall tales of your days adventures. The one thing that’s consistent about après is the sharing of beverages. Whether its a hot tea, a cold beer, or a post workout recovery drink everyone at après has a beverage.

We know that alcohol is a sensitive subject for some folk, and we deeply respect everyone’s personal choice to imbibe or not. That said, if you choose to imbibe, why not support the BIPoC Community.

Below is a list of craft breweries, distilleries, and wineries which are either owned by or whose beverages are crafted by members of the larger BIPoC community. The list includes craft beers, craft spirits, fine wines, and a few mocktails. Most producers ship outside their local area, and if there is a shop, taproom, or tasting room we’ve included that location beside the name.

This list is sortable and offers improved navigation on a desktop. Please enjoy responsibly. We update this list periodically so please let us if there is anyone we need to include.

This is Not a Pain Podcast

BIPoC Outside is a podcast about joy, empowerment, and the transformative power of the outdoors. We’re going to talk to athletes who are crushing it at all levels, innovators who are pushing the sports forward in terms of how, where, and what gear we use to do them, and organizers who are breaking down barriers so everyone can participate. Our first season, On the Snow, will drop November 2021. We hope you’ll join us.

First things First… BIPoC???

What Does it Stand For?

Black, Indigenous, and Peoples of Colour

It is also styled as IBPoC. Both are correct and are equal in every way except one… the ease of saying it out loud.

Where Did it Come From?

BIPoC, like a lot of things, emerged on social media.

In 2013 folks were looking for a more accessible term for racialized peoples. Terms like ‘racial minorities’, ‘visible minorities’, ‘people of colour’, or ‘non-white’ had mostly fallen out of favour because they implied that race is biological. The term racialized peoples recognizes that race is a social construct but being assigned race can have very real impacts on an individual. Is the term an improvement on its predecessors, yes. Is it a bit unwieldly for a social media generation, also yes.

So… BIPoC

How is it Used Properly?

First: Individuals are not BIPoC

Unless they specifically choose to identify as BIPoC. Normalize asking folks if you’re not sure, like asking for someone’s pronouns, it’s just respectful.

BIPoC is an umbrella terms for racialized peoples, which brings us to

Second: Different communities or individuals who fall under this umbrella term have different identities and experiences based on their culture, politics, faith, region they grew up in, and an unlimited number of other factors. Grouping them all together under this term doesn’t mean these individual perspectives become any less important.

Third: BIPoC is an imperfect term. Like many things created to fit within limited character text spaces it lacks nuance. To maintain the spirit of inclusiveness of this term it’s important to be mindful of capitalization, where you place the ‘and’, and most critically, that ‘Peoples’ is pluralized.

To find the nuance, BIPoC Outside will be speaking with Black, Indigenous, and Peoples of Colour, and BIPoC communities to explore BIPoC experiences doing awesome things outdoors.

Lesson over, lets get to the fun stuff!
