Collective Arts is proud to announce our participation in the Brave Noise beer collaboration, a collaborative movement with a big goal – Providing an inclusive and safe environment for women, BIPOC, and LGBTQ2S+ throughout the beer industry. We stand in solidarity with those who have experienced and are survivors of gender discrimination, racism, sexual assault, and harassment within our industry. This change is long overdue, and we are so proud to play a part in making the change happen.
Let’s come together, discuss how we can do better, and create inclusive and safe environments for our staff and customers
Proceeds from this beer, will go to Beer Kulture.
CODE OF CONDUCT
Collective Arts was founded because we believe a more creative world is a better world and, if we have to get up everyday and go to work, let’s have fun, push boundaries and inspire the world while we’re at it.
We want to inspire the world! We want to make sure the people who we interact with upholds the values of Kindness, Empathy, Respect, and Dignity just like we do!

We are committed to providing a work environment in which all individuals are treated with respect and dignity.
