Beer Party PDX Announces Fundraising Event For ACLU

The launch of Beer Party PDX will take place on Monday, February 20th to coincide with President’s Day. The Beer Party PDX Launch Event will take place around the Portland metro area at a dozen beer bars with 100% of the revenue going directly to the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU).

Beer Party PDX worked with a few local distributors, breweries and cideries to secure kegs for the ACLU fundraising event. The list of breweries and cideries include Baerlic, Base Camp, Bull Run Cider, Burnside, Cider Riot!, Coalition, Crooked Fence, Culmination, Double Mountain, Heater Allen, Machine House, Matchless, Montavilla, New Belgium, Ninkasi, pFriem, Ruse, The Commons, Three Magnets, Uptown Market, and Vertigo.

Participating bars include Bailey’s Taproom (Noon-Midnight), Bazi Bierbrasserie, The BeerMongers, Belmont Station, Imperial Bottle Shop and Taproom (Noon-10:00pm), Lombard House (Tuesday, Feb 21), Roscoe’s, Saraveza, The Thirsty Sasquatch (2:00-11:00pm), The Upper Lip (4:00-10:00pm), Tin Bucket, and Uptown Market.

The hours listed above are the hours that we could confirm for Monday’s event. Regarding the other locations we were told that most will tap the kegs when the bar opens on Monday and will pour the beer until the keg kicks. One exception with Imperial Bottle Shop as it will generously donate 100% of all of its draft sales on Monday from its 20 taps. The other exception Lombard House, since it is closed on Mondays, will tap its two donated kegs when it opens on Tuesday and will pour them until the two kick.

These are all of the details we received, so its best to check with each bar on hours and of course which beers were donated to see that the money raised will be going to the ACLU.

Here are additional details from the full press release…
