At Buck Bald Brewing, we believe we are blessed to be able to do something we love - brew beer.
We realize that we have been given a precious gift and that not everyone is as fortunate.
Because of this, we think it is important to show our gratitude to our customers and our community by
giving back. We pledge to find interesting an unique ways to contribute to our local people and our local economy. This may
include helping to sponsor local events, contributing to local charities, and buying locally whenever
Here are just a few of the ways that Buck Gives Back
Backpack Blonde Ale
We've been brewing a special beer - Backpack Blonde Ale - since Spring 2019. We always donate $1 for every Backpack Blonde Ale we sell to
Snack in a Backpack to provide food for needy local children, Polk County High School and Polk County Elementary School for Student Needs,
United Way of the Ocoee Region to support the Polk County Backpack Program.
As of January 2021 we have raised more than $6000 to support these deserving local charities.
Hangovers for Hounds
On November 7, 2020, we held our first annual Hangovers for Hounds fundraiser benefitting the Humane Society of Blue Ridge. Our fundraiser included live music, food donated by
Brasstown Beef, and Kosmic Kitty IPA, a
new brew we made just for the occasion with 100% of the proceeds benefitting the cause. We're looking forward to our second event next Spring.
Shepherd's Men 2020
Our Saturday, August 22 fundraiser for Shepherd's Men was our most successful fundraiser yet. With the help of our
amazing customers and generous local businesses and organizations such as Copperhill Cabins, Blue Jeans Pizza,
Old Toccoa Farm, Marine Corp League of Blue Ridge, and more we were able
to raise more than $35,000. We look forward to an even more successful event in 2021!
North Georgia Autism Foundation 2020
On July 11, 2020 we hosted a fundraiser for the North Georgia Autism Foundation. As part of this amazing event we donated more than
$1 per beer sold to the cause. We provided live music by Skelton Key and helped raise over $2100 to help local families affected by autism.
Grumpy Buck's Orange Wheat
In 2020 we brewed with Grumpy Old Men Brewing in our first collaboration with another brewery. Grumpy Buck's Orange Wheat
is a refreshing summer brew made with orange peels and a touch of rye. Both breweries donated a portion of the proceeds to Fannin County Snack in a Backpack
Thanks for visiting your favorite GA and TN breweries and helping us donate money for an amazing cause.
22 Pale Ale
At the request of the Shepherd's Men we have brought back our crisp and refreshing 22 Pale Ale as a part of our
normal beer rotation. While it lasts, we'll be donating $1 for each pint we sell to the Shepherd's Men and the veterans they serve.
For our August 22, 2020 fundraiser, we'll donate 100% of the sales to the cause.
St. Catherine Laboure's Ecumenical Outreach Program
While we were closed to on premise sales in 2020 we moved to a to-go only model.
For the time we were selling to-go only, we donated $1 from both 4-Pack and Filled Growler sales to St. Catherine Laboure's Ecumenical Outreach Program.
With the help of some extremely generous customers, we donated more than $1,500 to this important local charity.
Drink Local Think Global
In 2019 we were the only brewery in Tennessee that participated in the first ever Drink Local, Think Global Craft Beer Week. We were able
to raise $315 for this cause with the help of our amazing customers.
Buck Bald Brewing donates our spent grain to local farmers. This adds up to more than 1000 pounds of leftover grain from the brewing process per month. This grain is being used to feed farm
animals (rather then ending up in a landfill)
Toys For Tots
Buck Bald Brewing was the only site in Copperhill, TN to have a Toys for Tots
donation box since 2018. With the help of our amazing customers we fill the box beyond capacity each year and Buck Bald Brewing and our customers have donated ten bikes to the cause.
Easter Egg Lottery
In 2019, Buck Bald Brewing held our first annual Easter Egg Lottery to benefit the Polk County Lion's Club Vision Program. In one day our
customers helped us raise $707 to help Polk County children get vision testing and eyeglasses through the United Way of the Ocoee Region.
Shepherd's Men 2019
Our first fundraiser for Shepherd's Men to support our military veterans was in August 2019.
We had live music from Shannon York,
a Silent Auction, and a beer release for our "22 - Shepherd's Men Pale Ale". All proceeds of our new beer went to support the
Shepherd's Men. In 2019 our event helped raise over $11,000 for this important cause..
In 2018/2019 we were one of over 1700 breweries to brew our own version of the Sierra Nevada Resilience IPA. We donated 100% of the proceeds
to Camp Fire Relief. With the help of our wonderful customers we
raised $2,500 dollars to help families affected by the Camp Fire.
We have also made donations of money and brewery swag to numerous charities in our area including SHARP Animal Rescue, The Humane Society of Blue Ridge,
Feed Fannin and more.
The way we look at it, we get to give twice. Once when we provide you a tasty brew and a second
time when we get to give back to our local community.
