Giving back to the local community

one beer at a time

Since December 2013, we’ve been running our “Cheers to Charity!” Donation Program, which gives back to our amazing local community.

Enjoy four 5oz samples of our delicious brews, all while supporting a good cause! The profits from our sample flights are all going towards the current recipient.

The program was set up as a way of giving back. Here at Fernie Brewing Co., we are so fortunate to do business in the Elk Valley and so wanted to find a way of giving back to our local community.

Due to the large number of requests FBC receives each year for monetary, and other, donations, as a way of being able to commit to larger donation amounts, Cheers to Charity was created.

There are four main requirements of FBC’s Cheers to Charity Program:

  • Donations must directly benefit the local Elk Valley community (updated 2024)
  • Donations must benefit a group, as opposed to an individual or a team – recipients can be registered charities, clubs or organizations
  • Recipients must be of legal drinking age
  • Funding must help programs, which without support, would not be able to operate


While we often have a lengthy wait list, if you, or someone you know are eligible, we encourage you to reach out.



The Fernie Trails Alliance (FTA), is an alliance that represents all trail users in Fernie, BC and keeps the 300+ kilometres of world-class trails here in Fernie rolling, expanding and improving year over year.

As a registered Charity, the FTA works directly with member clubs, outdoor recreation groups and landowners in order to maintain and enhance Fernie’s vibrant trail-using community.

Keen to support the FTA? Make a donation or simply purchase your annual Trails Pass – a way for locals and visitors to support and give back to the Fernie trail network. With options from day and weekend use, to annual single and family memberships, there is a way for everyone to give back to Fernie’s outstanding trail network.

sponsorship opportunities

While we support the local community primarily through Cheers to Charity, we recognize that our CTC mandate doesn’t sometimes fit the bill.

As such, we do also offer in-kind sponsorship and support on a case by case basis for a wide variety of events, clubs and on occasion, individuals.

If you are an athlete looking for support from FBC, look out for our Team FBC annual application period. Be sure to follow us on social or sign up for our mailing list, to ensure you don’t miss out.

If you are hosting an event, or are a club looking for support, head to our Sponsorship + Support page, then reach out using our sponsorship submission form.

As you can imagine, we get a lot of requests, so please ensure you submit your request as early, with as much detail, as you can.

Please be aware, we cannot support any events or clubs which support or are fundraising for minors.



Bring us along on
your next adventure.

As long as you're of legal drinking
age in your province.
