The intent of this beer is to raise money for the Doernbecher Children’s Hospital Foundation. Since the beer’s inception back in January 2015, The Terry Porter have helped raise $70,000 for The Doernbecher Children’s Hospital Foundation and completion of the Oregon Health Sciences University (OHSU) Gary and Christine Rood Family Pavilion.
With the original fundraising goal met, this season’s fundraising will support the OHSU Cystic Fibrosis Center, the only nationally approved CF program serving Oregon and Southwest Washington, and OHSU Doernbecher’s care of kids with CF.
New for this year is the release of The Terry Porter in new 6-pack bottles. Gilgamesh Brewing and Columbia Distributing will donate $1 for every 6-pack and 22oz bottle sold, $25 for each 1/2bbl keg sold, and $9 for each 1/6bbl keg. There are also multiple custom-made NBA Jam Terry Porter edition arcade games traveling around Oregon collecting quarters for the cause. At the Gilgamesh Brewing restaurant each Terry Porter pint ordered adds $1 to the OHSU Doernbecher glass tank.
The release party and bottle signing for this year’s The Terry Porter will at New Seasons University Park at 2:00pm on Sunday, October 22nd. Terry will be on hand signing purchased bottles of his namesake brew. Jerseys, growlers, posters, and pint glasses will also be available for purchase.
The well-balanced, lightly chocolaty The Terry Porter is now available in 12oz 6-pack bottles, joining the popular 22oz bombers, and of course, the fan-favorite on-tap availability across Oregon and Washington.
