Topa Topa Brewing Co.

Donation Information

 

Thank you for thinking of us! We love donating beer to support local causes and organizations whose values align with our own. We are a 1% for the Planet member and, as such, we try to focus our giving on 1% for the Planet affiliated non-profits. 1% for the Planet.

We receive a large number of requests and, as much as we would like to, we cannot support every event.

The California ABC (Alcohol Beverage Control) is very specific as to who independent breweries can donate to. We can only donate to tax-exempt 501(c)3 or 501(c)6 organizations. Legally we cannot donate merchandise – we receive many requests to donate items for auctions and/or gift baskets. Unfortunately, we are not allowed to do so. The law also states that beer cannot be auctioned and, furthermore, any donated beer must be consumed on-site – no beer may be removed from the event.

If you are a 501(c)3 or 501(c)6 organization, and you would like us to consider donating beer for an upcoming event, please send an email, as early as possible, to hi@topatopa.beer. In the email, please include the following information:

  • Organizer’s contact information

  • Your organization’s name, address, and website

  • What the event is, the date and time of the event, and where it will be located

  • If you plan to get an ABC day-of permit for the event

    • This permit is needed for us to legally donate beer. Before the event, you will need to send us a copy of the permit so we have it for our records.

  • The name of the non-profit that the event is benefitting

  • How many people you are expecting

  • If there will be any other alcohol options at the event

  • How much beer are you looking for us to donate

  • If you would like us to be there to pour at the event

You must ask us for permission to use Topa Topa Brewing Co. in any of your marketing material before you publish it – this includes the use of our logo. When using our company name, please ensure it states “Topa Topa Brewing Co.” or “Topa Topa Brewing Company” – not Topa Topa Brewery.

We would also love to know why you would like Topa Topa Brewing Co.’s beer at the event.

Note that our calendar fills quickly with donations and events - We recommend sending all of the above information to us as early as possible.

 

Thank you!
