OMNI Brewing Launches ‘Things We Don’t Say’ IPA for Mental Health Awareness
OMNI Brewing Co. in Maple Grove wants its latest craft beer to help smash the stigmas surrounding mental health.
The brewer partnered with Chicago nonprofit Hope for the Day on a project that unites 150 breweries in five different countries to encourage people to talk about mental health.
Lead brewer Tim Ott created Things We Don’t Say, a special West Coast IPA that launches on Saturday.
“People being able to talk about it without it being this mountain you have to climb over, you know. There’s so many people suffering in silence because they don’t feel comfortable reaching out to people,” said Ott. “Just being able to talk about it is such a huge relief for people.”
There are several phone numbers on the back of the can to find help. Some of the proceeds from every pint sold go to suicide prevention and mental health education.
