Batch Brewing Company Launches Their ‘Feelgood Tap’ Charity Initiative

Giving back to the community is important to Founder and Head Brewer Stephen Roginson


Less than a month after opening their doors, Batch Brewing Company announced their plans to give back to the community.

The “Feelgood Tap” will feature a different beer and a different nonprofit partner each month. Batch will contribute $2 for each Feelgood Tap pint sold during any given month, and will hold an event every month to kick off each partnership.

“We believe we can be wildly successful and give something back to our community simultaneously,” says Stephen Roginson, Founder and Head Brewer at Batch Brewing Company. “We’re excited to partner with all types and sizes of organizations, especially ones that affect our immediate Detroit community and Corktown Neighborhood.”

The National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Michigan Chapter will be the first Feelgood Tap partner. This charitable group is extremely important to Roginson, as his mother was diagnosed with it in the 1980s.

The partnership with the MS Society leads into their May 3rd Walk MS event in Downtown Detroit. Between the Feelgood Tap and the walk team, Batch Brewing Company has set a goal of raising more than $5,000 for the MS Society.

“We are thrilled to be Batch Brewing Company’s first Feelgood Tap charity,” says Elana Sullivan, president of the MS Society. “This creative fundraising initiative will truly help us in our work to create a world free of MS. It also sets a higher bar for community involvement that promises to help many worthwhile causes in Detroit,” she adds. “That’s a win-win for everyone, and we are so proud to be partnering with Batch in this way.”

Batch is also working to expand the initiative to include other bars and restaurants to contribute to the fundraising effort. They plan to form a Feelgood 501(c)3 by mid-2016.

Additional nonprofit partners slated for future Feelgood Tap partnerships include The Cabrini Clinic and The Detroit Hispanic Development Corporation.
