Giving back to a place that has given us so much is part of how we live life Alaskan. 

So when you tip the Brew Crew, we pass your generosity on to our community. Each year, the Alaskan Brew Crew gives our collection of annual tips and proceeds from fundraisers to a local nonprofit organization. In 2017, we selected Hospice and Home Care of Juneau as our nonprofit for donation. 

Ales For Tails

Alaskan Brewing’s Ales for Tails program is a charitable giving program inspired by our Husky IPA. Life in Alaska is about more than the place we live; it’s about the creatures we share it with, too. The Ales for Tails program allows us a chance to give back to the loyal four-legged friends that many of us call family, and has raised over $20,000 so far for registered animal nonprofits like humane societies and rescue organizations.

Promoting a Sustainable Ocean

 Alaskan Brewing promotes sustainable business and brewing, but we also promote sustainable living. That’s why Alaskan Brewing donates 1% of all proceeds from Alaskan Icy Bay IPA to promote the health and sustainability of oceans and waterways.

Making a difference, one beer at a time

Since the creation of the Coastal CODE in 2007, over 1 million pounds of trash have been removed from cleanup efforts made possible by the CODE and thousands of volunteers. Beaches and waterways from Alaska to California and now the Gulf to the Midwest can all benefit from this beer with a cause.
