Exile Builds is the philanthropic arm of Exile Brewing Company. Our goal is to cultivate a thriving community by working with organizations that focus on an active lifestyle, health, conservation, and community improvements. We do this through volunteering time and manpower, raising funds and charitable donations, and using our brewery as a platform to create awareness within our community.
Susan G. Komen
In 2018 Exile started the Ruthie Breast Cancer Campaign. During the month of October, we made our Ruthie labels on our bottles pink and for every case that was sold throughout the month, we donated $1 to Susan G. Komen Greater Iowa. In 2018 we raised over $1,000 for Susan G. Komen Greater Iowa. We look forward to raising more awareness in 2019.
Lemon Trail Ride
The Lemon Trail Ride was started in 2018 in conjunction with the release of Lemon Trail, our spring and summer seasonal. The route of the ride changes every year, stopping at various bars along the route. All the proceeds are donated to Friends of Des Moines Parks for new FixIt stations to be installed around the city.
Adopt a Highway
Exile has partnered with Adopt a Highway and the Iowa DOT to keep I-235 clean!! Exile adopted 6 portions of I-235 that we clean twice a year. Part of our mission statement of Exile Builds is to help maintain a clean environment.
While working with the City of Des Moines and non-profit, Trees Forever we came up with a plan to get more trees planted around Des Moines. To celebrate Earth Day we will be planting trees around the city on April 20th! We will also be giving away “Tiny Trees” for residents of the City of Des Moines to plant on their property!
All donation requests must be submitted 30 days prior to event/campaign deadline. All requests submitted will be reviewed and followed up with a response.
