SHAWNEE, Kan. — Transport Brewery is releasing a new IPA Sunday to help bring awareness to mental health.

The brewery said the “Things We Don’t Say IPA” is a craft beer for mental health and is a call to empower breweries from around the world to use their platforms to stand up for those who suffer in silence with their mental health, be it with anxiety, depression, or other mental illness.

“The project was created to help shift how we approach mental health by encouraging people to talk about their experiences and feelings, both good and bad, and to demonstrate the importance of asking for help when we need it,” the company said.

Transport Brewery said people can come out Sunday and drink for a cause. The “Things We Don’t Say IPA” will be available by draft in Crowlers with a portion of the proceeds being donated to Hope for the Day and Carl’s Cause, a Lenexa based organization focused on suicide prevention in honor of Carl Specht.

The taproom at Transport Brewery will be open from noon to 6 p.m. Sunday.

One in four people battles depression, and for some it leads to suicide. But it doesn’t have to.

FOX4 encourages everyone to have an open dialogue about depression. Silence helps no one.
