RAISING UP BRISTOL COMMUNITIES – YEAR 1 BREWED TO GIVE REFLECTIONS

One year in and we want to let you know about the impact of your last BBF pint.

BBF has always looked for ways to give back to the city that made us. We’ve given beer and sponsorship, here and there, but often to customers and friends we already had a connection with. In 2020, we launched Clear Head to raise money for Talk Club, and that gave us a taste of beer for good. But we knew that our city needed more, and we wanted to rise to the challenge. We wanted to lead the charge!

That’s why we launched Brewed to Give – to raise up Bristol communities with a 2% tax on total brewery sales.

Over the past 12 months, we have donated more than £80k of stock, space and direct support to180 charities and good causes across our city.

But the genius of the initiative, is that where appropriate, we invest our asset - Beer - then support communities to sell it, generating 3-5 times the cost price. In this way, our £80k investment has converted into £200k of unrestricted funds, kept by the community, for the community. No strings, no fuss, no funding reports!

Every beer you buy gives back to Bristol and with thanks to you, the Brewed to Give budget has increased to £100k for 2024-25. This means we can support more epic projects, more frequently, across more parts of the city. But we're not going to stop there as we’re already planning on how we can make Brewed to Give bigger and better. From rolling out new pathways into brewing for local young people, to inspiring other businesses to join us, or make their own commitment to the city.

“We think this idea is the essence of what the word 'community' stands for. You support the people who made you, you lead by example, you let people have a good time and help them run great events for good causes. It is a cycle of goodness! We hope other local businesses follow your lead!”
Ruslan, volunteer for Friends of Henleaze Infant School

Whether you access our support, join us as a business partner, or buy a BBF beer, just know that together, we’ve got Bristol’s back!

Every beer you buy gives back to Bristol.
