Our Partnership with 1% for the Planet


Smog City Brewing Co. is a committed steward to the planet. We believe it is our responsibility as a company to find positive ways to impact our environment and local community now and for the future. As part of our efforts, we decided to become 1% for the Planet members in 2017, which means 1% of our gross sales are donated to environmental non-profits. Our non-profits partners are making a big positive impact on the environment in our local community by educating, protecting, and celebrating our environment and we are excited to further their efforts through our contributions and spread more Smog throughout Southern California, the good kind!
