Inland Empire Brewers Guild

The Inland Empire Brewers Guild are out to dominate in the Zen and the Art of Beer fundraising challenge with your help for the craft beer community!

The Inland Empire Brewers Guild recognizes the need to support thousands of struggling small independent breweries and family businesses throughout California, so they can be there to revive our communities once this long winter is over.  


To help spread the word and raise funds, we’re enlisting you to participate and get your friends, family, and colleagues to join in on the fun! Not only do we need your support, but we would also love to have you take the challenge and share with everyone you know.  

Throughout most of 2020 and for the foreseeable future, craft breweries and partner businesses these breweries sell their products to -- bars, restaurants, bottleshops, etc. -- have been required to cease all on-site consumption, eliminating the main source of revenue craft breweries need to survive. 

As a result, breweries have had to lay off or furlough workers, shift operations and make unanticipated add'l investments to meet new restrictions and cover much higher costs for packaging and selling its products -- all while continuing to shoulder higher operating costs of being a manufacturer without any direct economic relief, and being treated differently from winery manufacturers who were afforded looser restrictions with serving their product to consumers. The restrictions and loss of business have caused breweries to close, and more are expected not to survive.

Funds raised help local communities:

  1. Local and state organizations fighting to keep small, independent, family-owned breweries in business, helping them survive and recover
  2. Local charities and community nonprofits helping struggling food and beverage workers from all small, neighborhood businesses survive and recover
, specifically: 

           a - California Restaurant Association Foundation


TOGETHER, we can make an impact. This rising tide is lifting all boats. Join us and let’s make waves together!

Central Coast Brewers Guild

The Central Coast Brewers Guild charges ahead in the Zen and the Art of Beer fundraising challenge with your help for the craft beer community!

The Central Coast Brewers Guild recognizes the need to support thousands of struggling small independent breweries and family businesses throughout California, so they can be there to revive our communities once this long winter is over.  


To help spread the word and raise funds, we’re enlisting you to participate and get your friends, family, and colleagues to join in on the fun! Not only do we need your support, but we would also love to have you take the challenge and share with everyone you know.  

Throughout most of 2020 and for the foreseeable future, craft breweries and partner businesses these breweries sell their products to -- bars, restaurants, bottleshops, etc. -- have been required to cease all on-site consumption, eliminating the main source of revenue craft breweries need to survive.  

As a result, breweries have had to lay off or furlough workers, shift operations and make unanticipated add'l investments to meet new restrictions and cover much higher costs for packaging and selling its products -- all while continuing to shoulder higher operating costs of being a manufacturer without any direct economic relief, and being treated differently from winery manufacturers who were afforded looser restrictions with serving their product to consumers. The restrictions and loss of business have caused breweries to close, and more are expected not to survive.

Funds raised help local communities:

    1. Local and state organizations fighting to keep small, independent, family-owned breweries in business, helping them survive and recover
    2. Local charities and community nonprofits helping struggling food and beverage workers from all small, neighborhood businesses survive and recover
, specifically: 

           a - California Restaurant Association Foundation

           b- United States Bartender Guild Foundation (California only)


TOGETHER, we can make an impact. This rising tide is lifting all boats. Join us and let’s make waves together!
