Topa Topa Brewing Co.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.

If there will be any other alcohol options at the event
