It Takes A Tribe

Before Goat Patch Brewing Company had a name, a business plan, or even a location, we all agreed on one thing: developing a year round philanthropic initiative that gives back to our community.

At GPB, we believe that every individual has the power to impact community. Craft beer isn’t a spectator sport, we encourage you to grab a pint of your favorite GPB beer and help us to give back.

Let’s face it, IT TAKES A TRIBE – and we hope you’ll join ours in the following ways.


“Bleating Heart” Night

What’s louder than a tribe of bleating goats? Our tasting room on a Tuesday night!

Bleating Heart night is a weekly initiative that features a local non-profit each Tuesday from 5:00pm to 9:00pm.

In addition to learning about the amazing work occurring in the community, one dollar from every pint of Goat Patch brews sold during this time will go directly to the featured non-profit of the week. 

Become a GPB Bleating Heart and make Tuesday your new favorite night to grab a beer!


It Takes A Tribe Initiative

In addition to the weekly Bleating Heart night, we want our patrons to have an opportunity to give back no matter what day or time they come see us.

Cue in…Goat Patch Brewing Company’s FULL-TIME COMMUNITY BEER.

If you are the type of person who wants to marry your love of beer with a spirit of altruism, our It Takes a Tribe Red Ale is just the brew for you!

How does GPB’s “It Takes A Tribe” Initiative work?

  • Each year, GPB will identify 2 local non-profits.
  • These agencies will be featured via a small display case for a full 12 months in our tasting room.
  • For each pint of It Takes A Tribe Red purchased in our tasting room, our patrons will receive a wooden nickel.
  • At that time, the patron gets to decide which agency they would like to support by dropping their wooden nickel in that agency’s collection box.
  • At the end of the year, we will total all of the wooden nickels (which represent 25 cents) and write a check to the featured non-profit.

Featured Non-Profits

We are thrilled to announce our inaugural 2017 “It Takes a Tribe” featured non-profits. Learn more about the positive impact they are making on the Colorado Springs community below.
