Blackhorse Gives Back (BGB) donates beer and merchandise to charitable events as our way of giving back to the communities of Knoxville and Clarksville. To apply for BGB we have a committee review each donation request to determine if we can help.

If you would like Blackhorse Beer or Merchandise donated for your charitable event, please read the guidelines below. If you feel your charitable event qualifies please fill out the donation request form below.

All donation requests must be placed at least 45 days prior to the date of your event. Once we review your request, we will get back to you with a decision ASAP.

If you have a reason as to why we should donate to your event or cause, let us know by filling out the form below. Please keep in mind that we, for the most part, try to sell our beer. Please do not ask us to donate to your wedding or camping trip.
