DOWNTOWN MEMPHIS, Tenn. (FOX13) - Some happy people spent their Sunday giving back by having a cold drink.

For six hours the Tennessee Brewery Untapped project on The Bluffs donated $1 to one of five area non-profits for each beer they sold.

Customers were given a token and were encouraged to deposit it into a bucket bearing the name of one of the non-profit organizations represented. Sunday's giving back benefited Literacy Mid-South, Sierra Club, Wings Cancer Foundation, Habitat for Humanity of Greater Memphis, and the Levitt Shell.

On Sundays during its six-week run, Untapped’s sponsors match the nonprofit receiving the most tokens.

"Well one of the things we wanted to do is with this building and with this project, really show support to the community because the community has been nothing but supportive to the project," said Andy Cates, real estate broker abd Untapped team member.

"We thought it would be a great way for people to support their non-profit, come have a beer, and check out a really cool building at the same time."

Untapped runs Thursday through Sunday through Sunday, June 1.
