Our community is the rad. The raddest community on the planet to be real. For that, we gotta match it. We strive to give back as much as we can, by partnering with organizations that are important to our community and help the greater good, whether brewing humanity conscious beers that raise funds, stepping up to fill emergency needs (looking at you, sanitizer shortage), throwing killer events for charity, or simply providing a safe and inclusive gathering place.
MIU Men's Health Foundation
MIU Men’s Health Foundation is dedicated to men’s health advocacy and the awareness, education, research and treatment of prostate cancer and men’s health-related issues. Griffin Claw partners every year by opening up the taproom as a gathering place and start/finish to a charity bike race where Griffin Claw also donates beer and food for the participants.
Leaderdogs for the Blind
Leaderdogs for the Blind programs are designed to provide our clients with the tools and training to reintroduce them to a life of confidence, safety and independence. Through our full-range of services—Guide Dog Training, Orientation & Mobility Training and Summer Experience Camp—we meet the mobility needs of our clients at every stage of their lives.
Every year Griffin Claw hosts Bark n Brew, one of the biggest fundraisers for the organization. This event is a full festival at our Rochester Hills location, complete with beer, food, bounce houses, a bike race, and of course puppies! (This year was a little different due to COVID, but we hope to be back to normal by next year).
GiGi’s Playhouse Detroit
GiGi’s Playhouse are achievement centers for individuals with Down syndrome, and their goal is to change the way the world views Down syndrome while sending a global message of acceptance for all. Griffin Claw has partnered with GiGi’s on multiple occasions including World Down Syndrome Day, March 21st, each year when a portion of the proceeds from both the Birmingham and Rochester Hills Taprooms are donated to the Detroit-based GiGi’s Playhouse.
Beer-lovers from around the world come together to end ALS through Ales for ALS™, a fundraising program where breweries craft great beers from a custom hop blend and donate the proceeds to ALS research. Cheers to beer and to helping #EndALS!
