Love free beer, cool swag and making a difference? So do we.

The Collard Corps is the volunteer wing of Blue Collards. We organize a ton of incredible culinary events all over the South — including Peat & Pearls, Barleybrine and the Hoe Cake Throw Down. In each case, we donate a portion of proceeds to a charitable cause we care about, and we rely on a small army of volunteers to make sure it all goes off without a hitch.

Besides helping us do some good, Collard Corps members receive limited-edition swag, gain free entry to our events and, generally, get to hang out with chefs, brewers, farmers and all manner of other awesome folks.

If you like to work hard, eat well and do good, consider joining us. Fill out the form below, and we’ll notify you the next time there’s an opportunity to lend a hand.

Peat & Pearls | Oct. 3-6 | Pensacola, FL

Peat & Pearls, now in its third year, is a celebration of Scotch & regional, farm-raised oysters.
