Are you raising money for individuals primarily under the
age of 21? If YES, please DO NOT fill out or submit this form as we
are unable to donate to this cause. Even if your event is 21+!
Received a "syntax error"?
Sorry, for the confusion. Certain web browers are not friendly with our website. Don't worry we received your request.
Do you donate to local causes?
Coastal Extreme Brewing Company and Newport Distilling Company
have been active supporters for many of the areas non-profit
organizations over the years. We have donated to hundreds of causes
and helped raise thousands of dollars for our neighbors and the
causes that are important to them. As a local business it is important
for us to support the things that are important to our drinkers and do
our part in making our community a better place.
How do you make a request?
In order to make it easier for organizations to ask for our help, we
have posted our donation request form at the bottom of this page for
you to download and fill out. Given the literally hundreds of requests
our company receives each year for donations, please fill these out at
least a month prior to your event so we may have time review them
and determine what we will be able to do. Although we would like to
fulfill all requests, please understand that we are a small brewery.
Our production of ~4,000 barrels last year pales in comparison to
brewers like Boston Beer Company (~1.3 million barrels) or Anheuser
Busch (~130 million barrels). Our team of 7 handles everything from
brewing and distilling to sales support of our beers and spirits, paying
our bills, and changing the light bulbs. Everyone wears several hats.
Because of this we have a much more limited budget and less
available "man hours" when handling requests. In short, what may be
easy for some of our larger brewing industry peers (although we use
the term "peer" loosely!), may not be so easy for us.
How can we help you?
For silent auction and reception oriented events we prefer to send
tour and tasting cards to our brewery and distillery, it is a great
opportunity for us to showcase what we do at our facility and is a
memorable experience for those looking to discover more about the
craft beer world!
Do you have any limits?
As was mentioned before, we are a small brewery so we may not be
as capable of providing the scale of support that you may receive
from large companies. However, we do our best to help out as many
groups as we can and we will certainly do everything we can to help
out your cause. Unfortunately, given today's media and litigious
landscape, we are not able to donate to organizations whose primary
goal is to raise funds or provide services for individuals under the
age of 21. With so many groups concerned with, and in some cases
taking legal actions against, brewers, distillers, and winemakers for
what they perceive as attempts to market to underage people it is
simply not appropriate for us to put ourselves in a position where one
of these fundamentalist groups could charge us with this practice.
We realize that to many this may seem unrealistic but, sadly, in
today's environment it is anything but that.
