Give Back Tuesdays


At Iron Springs, we like to think of ourselves as active participants in our community, not as passive service providers. We know that the folks who frequent our pub are not just customers, they are our friends and neighbors. We like to think that this attitude is reflected in our style of service and in our casual, homey atmosphere. But that’s really just a reflection of what goes on behind the scenes at Iron Springs.

One of the most overt ways in which we choose to contribute to our community is through our “Give Back Tuesday” program. Every Tuesday, a percentage of the proceeds from the pub are donated to a local cause or organization. In this way, folks can come down, have a nice meal and a pint (or several) and know that some of what they spend on their meal is coming right back into the programs and services that make Fairfax and Marin such a fantastic place to live.

Our staff all lives locally, and we’re all raising our kids, dogs, cats and ferrets, living our lives, and doing our best to adhere to a simple credo: love one another. With everything we do – both big and small – we’re trying to make the world a better place to live in. For ourselves, for our children, and for our neighbors.

The Iron Springs Give Back Tuesday program has donated an average of over $15,000 a year to such great causes as:

  • The YES Foundation
  • Drake High Mt. Bike Team
  • Marin Community Food Bank
  • Bread & Roses
  • Adopt-a-Family of Marin
  • Point Reyes Seashore Association
  • Conservation Corps North Bay
  • And many more…
