Donation guidelines


AUCTION DONATIONS
Under current California law, merchandise may not be donated. Current law also dictates that beer may not be auctioned and all beer donated to a non-profit event must be consumed on the premises. No beer may be removed from the event.

BEER DONATION LAWS
Due to state laws from the California ABC (Alcohol & Beverage Control), we are only able to donate beers to non-profit events that meet all of the requirements.  The ABC California Business & Professions code 23357.3 outlines the statute related to these events and donations.

Bird Street Brewing can donate to non-profit organizations. We are only allowed to donate to federally designated 501(c) organizations. For events where we are going to pour beer a non-profit organization must apply for a special daily permit license (ABC 221) through the ABC. Bird Street Brewing may donate beer to a 501(c) organization that is holding a private event (not open to the public, no charge for admission and no sales of alcohol) that is being held at a location that is not licensed by the ABC.
