Terrapin Beer Company recognizes the importance of community involvement and is committed to lending a hand to our neighbors. It is one of the ways we say thanks and give something back to the communities that have given so much to us.
Like many small businesses, Terrapin Beer Company receives several requests for donations throughout the year. Although many of these requests have merit, there are far more requests than we are able to handle. Instead of making haphazard decisions about donations, Terrapin Beer Company has created a philanthropy committee made up of select Terrapin employees. This committee meets once per month to decide on where our charity resources are allocated for the following month.
Please note that in the State of Georgia, it is illegal for anyone to give or sell beer to anyone other than a licensed distributor. Due to this restriction, we cannot provide free beer – not even to licensed charities. If you are unhappy with this law, please contact your Georgia State Legislator.
In order to consider a donation to your organization or event, we ask that you please send us the information requested below. Due to the number of requests we receive each month we must get this information by the 20th day of the month prior to the event. Our philanthropy committee will meet at the end of each month to review all requests for the following month. We will inform you of our decision at that time.
In order to review all donation requests efficiently and fairly, we ask that all information be submitted in writing to: Event Sponsorships, Terrapin Beer Company, 265 Newton bridge Rd., Athens, GA 30607. The necessary information is as follows: date/time of event, contact person, number of people expected to attend, location, donation requested, beer sampling opportunities, signage opportunities, and media coverage expected. Use your best judgment to include any information that may be relevant.
Because there are certain liabilities we face when our name or products are associated with a public event, please be prepared to sign our indemnification agreement and acquire an event insurance rider with Terrapin Beer Company added as an additional insured before the donation is complete. Also please understand that as a beer company we can not be involved with any event that benefits under age persons.
Thank you for considering Terrapin Beer Company in association with your event or fundraiser.
