Portland’s Migration Brewing is helping to support Oregon Wild’s 40th Anniversary with an exclusive bottled beer. This special release, The Wilderness, is a Northwest Style Red Ale that will be available in bottles only at the “Call of the Wild” fundraising event on Friday, October 17th. Taking place at the Left Bank Annex from 5:30 to 9:00pm, Call of the Wild is a benefit in support of Oregon Wild.

“Healthy, protected forests mean clean water. And clean water is a big reason why Oregon has such great beer,” Migration Brewing co-owner Colin Rath said. “Oregon Wild works to protect our water and forests and that’s allowed Oregon breweries to produce some of the best beer on the planet.”

“The Wilderness” is a tribute to Oregon Wild’s efforts to conserve special areas across the state. It is brewed using three Oregon hop varieties, each representing Wilderness areas that Oregon Wild has helped to permanently protect: Mount Hood hops for the Mount Hood Wilderness, Santiam hops for the Middle Santiam Wilderness, and Cascade hops for the Three Sisters Wilderness.

“Wilderness is the gold standard for public lands protection,” said Oregon Wild Development Director Jonathan Jelen. “So it’s fitting that Migration Brewing has produced a beer that we see as the gold standard for NW red ales.”
