Raytown’s Crane Brewing Company announced the release of “Brewshound,” a new hazy pale ale benefitting The Kansas City Media Collective

The KC Media Collective and Raytown’s Crane Brewing Company are collaborating on the “Brewshound,” a new hazy pale ale that benefits local journalism.

Crane Brewing Company prides themselves on being a community brewery, and says it's their duty to give back whenever possible.

Chris Meyers, co-founder and co-owner, credits himself and head brewer Bryan Stewart for coming up with the idea to have a beer dedicated to support journalism.

The KC Media Collective is a collaborative initiative between nonprofit media organizations in Kansas City, including KCUR, dedicated to making local news more easily accessible, equitable and sustainable.

"It's something that I've been had a passion for. I'm a news junkie and of course local journalism." Meyers states. "Our head brewer Brian also came from journalism and we're really glad it all came about."
