Welcome to Beer Church

Beer Church is a Seattle-based organization with a worldwide mission: use beer to promote the greater good. Beer Church was founded in 1997 by a group of friends in Seattle. From humble beginnings, the idea grew into what it is today. The best way to stay informed and get involved is by finding Beer Church on Facebook.

The way we see it, Beer Church is the largest unorganized religion in the world. The goal is to unite like-minded people (beer lovers) to benefit worthy causes. We hope that what we do in Seattle inspires people to do good things.

We encourage beer lovers everywhere to get involved in their communities and work to make the world a better place. Donate, volunteer, and participate. Unite your beer-drinking friends and find responsible, safe ways to raise funds, give back, or otherwise get involved.

Then go enjoy an icy cold beer knowing that you deserve it.

Director, Beer Church

You are Beer Church
Beer is the world’s oldest and most popular libation. The exact number of beer drinkers in the world is nebulous, but we know for certain that over 35 billion gallons of beer are sold, and presumably consumed, around the world each year. Clearly, there are a lot of us beer lovers.


Beer Church Believes…
Beer Church believes that we beer lovers are part of one very large and diverse social group by virtue of our shared appreciation of beer. Beer Church also believes that beer lovers (and most people in general) want to make the world a better place. Our goal is to unite like-minded individuals with one simple mission­—make the world a better place one beer at a time.

Beer Church’s founders in their reckless youth. Good times spawned a good idea.

What Beer Church Does…
The best way to stay informed and get involved is to find Beer Church on Facebook.

We host an annual fundraiser each year around Thanksgiving: The Beer Church Turkey Bowl, a bowling party, fundraiser and food drive. In its 17-year history, Turkey Bowl has raised over $100,000 for a variety of causes. For the last several years, the event has benefited the West Seattle Food Bank.

We also release Beer Church Holiday Ale each year. A select group of local breweries produce their own versions of the same beer, following guideline provided by Beer Church. All proceeds from the sale of Beer Church Holiday Ale benefit the Crohns and Colitis Foundation of America.

Who’s Behind Beer Church?
