Work In Progress
We are a Work In Progress brewery
Work In Progress is an open, decentralised group of breweries that aspire to a more inclusive and representative beer industry. We’re committed to taking action in our businesses and forging links with communities to increase opportunities and promote collaboration between brewers and under-represented groups in our society.
We need to do more. We are committed to getting this right. Below are explicit commitments that we aim to weave into the fabric of our company. We will measure, interrogate and adapt with humility. If you drink or sell our beer, we hope we’re on a similar path.
