Crowns & Hops Brewing Co. Pays Homage to the People of Inglewood and their Commitment to Serving the Community with Release of New Beer


IT News Wire

Crowns & Hops Brewing Co., the first Blackowned craft beer brand in Inglewood, CA, is further cementing its dedication to the City of Inglewood through its brand mission of preserving culture, building community, and expanding the palate of consumers in the area.

The commitment starts with the brewery laying roots in the community through its 14,000

square foot location off Manchester Ave. and Crenshaw Blvd. Crowns Inglewood is a

community establishment based in the heart of Inglewood, and it will provide a safe familyfriendly

space to gather, dine and have delicious independent craft beer. To help support

this mission, Crowns & Hops Brewing Co. recently launched their equity crowdfunding

campaign “OWN CROWNS” to help raise the capital needed for the new location.

“We have always celebrated the mission of community and ownership in the craft beer

industry. We’re excited to bring these concepts of investment and equity to a region that

has been starved of resources for generations,” said Teo Hunter, COO & Head of Beer


This investment opportunity allows the community to participate in the revitalization efforts

of a city. Crowns & Hops will offer locals and visitors alike an opportunity to publicly

connect in Inglewood/South L.A. to enjoy premium products produced in Inglewood. Cofounders

Beny Ashburn & Teo Hunter believe this opportunity will allow for the

community to invest in the city’s development while supporting Black-owned businesses in

the region.

As stated by Beny Ashburn, CEO, “Our brand started with the community. Now, we want

to offer the community an opportunity to own a part of Crowns in the City of Champions

and wherever we expand.”

In addition, last month the brewery co-hosted a panel discussion and mixer at All In Co

Working with the Inglewood Chamber of Commerce and the City of Inglewood in

celebration of Black Business Month. The panel specifically discussed balancing the

benefits, resources, and initiative in a developing city, with Inglewood Mayor James Butts

opening the event by announcing the official date for the ground-breaking of the new Los

Angeles Clippers arena. Butts also delivered a heartfelt message about the ongoing

progress and growth happening within the city and amongst its residents.
