At the heart of its mission will be assisting local nonprofits and other businesses in the development of corporations and merchandise in the craft beverage world.

Already, the PRSC brewery is launching an inaugural beer, dubbed Legacy. The hazy IPA will debut on September 26. It will be made available for one day only at Harold & Belle’s Restaurant in the Jefferson Park neighborhood of South Los Angeles, at 2920 W Jefferson Boulevard. All of the proceeds from the sales will go towards purchasing at-home Chromebook computers for virtual classroom activities for local students in South Central. This new move is a collaboration with Los Angeles City Councilman Curren Price and nonprofit Community Build, Inc.
