Labor Day special feature: a list of union-made beers

by Mike Andrew - SGN Staff Writer

The Labor Day picnic is a traditional and beloved end-of-summer event, and no part of the event is more beloved than ice-cold beer. So if you like a beer or two - or more - on Labor Day, why not get into the spirit of the occasion and buy union-made beer?

Our community's history with union beer goes all the way back to 1973, when Harvey Milk teamed up with the Teamsters to boycott Coors beer - then an anti-union and anti-Gay company. Now you can enjoy union-made Coors with a clear conscience, knowing they treat their workers, including LGBT ones, as well as any employer in the industry.

Here's a short list of beers and ales made by members of the International Association of Machinists (IAM), International Brotherhood of Teamsters (IBT), United Autoworkers (UAW), United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW), International Union of Operating Engineers (IUOE), and International Union of Electronic Workers-Communication Workers of America (IUE-CWA).

Not only do these unions represent expert beer-makers, canners, bottlers, and beer truck drivers but they are among the most progressive, pro-LGBT unions in the country.

o Coors Light

o Sam Adams

o Shock Top

o Rolling Rock

o Red Stripe

o Miller Genuine Draft

o Beck's

o Henry Weinhard's

Want some grilling items to go with your beer? Here's a list of union-made and union-packed hotdogs, burgers, and other items:

o Ball Park franks

o Butterball turkey tenderloins, drumsticks, burgers, and franks

o Dearborn Sausage Company

o Empire Kosher chicken and turkey

o Farmer John
