Battle of the Breweries


Battle of the Breweries Logo

Since we launched the program, recycling the little aluminum tabs from cans has generated over $400,000 for our Ronald McDonald House®. We are so grateful to our community partners for making this program possible. Pop Tab collecting is an easy and thoughtful way to support our families and our environment!

As our House is located in “Brew City,”  it only made sense to partner with incredible local brewers and entrepreneurs in our community who create canned beverages to collect pop tabs. Thus in 2023, the “Battle of the Breweries” was born.

Our first competition was a neck and neck race between Third Space Brewing and Broken Bat Brewing, with Third Space coming out on top with 40 pounds of pop tabs collected!

From November 1, 2023 through May 10, 2024, eight local breweries will compete to see who can collect the most tabs. This is where you come in!

Lakefront Brewery Mid-Season Champs

Congrats to the 2024 Mid-Season Champs, Lakefront Brewery, for collecting 36 pounds of tabs!

Thanks to the other seven breweries who pulled together for our families. See you May 10 at Third Space Brewing for our end of season celebration!

How to participate in Battle of the Breweries:

  • Bring a donation of one standard sandwich bag full of pop tabs to any of the breweries listed below to receive one free beer. (One per patron, per visit).
  • The same rules apply for all participating brewery locations.
  • Our brewery participants will “Pull Together” to double the donation at the end of the battle on Tab Toss Day, so join us to see who will be named the Battle of the Breweries Champion!
