Beer for Charity!

This weekend is Brews for New Avenues, an event that brings delicious beer and a good cause together under one tent. This is what New Avenues is all about (taken from their website):

 

Since 1997, New Avenues for Youth has offered programs and services that empower homeless youth to exit street life. Our values shape how we address the complex issue of youth homelessness and the solutions we offer. New Avenues believes that every young person should have food, shelter, and access to education and job training. We believe we must go beyond meeting basic needs and offer programs that heal young lives and foster growth and independence.

Our mission is to work in partnership with our community to prevent youth homelessness and provide homeless and at-risk young people with the resources and skills needed to lead healthy, productive lives.

VIP tickets are 50 bucks and include entry into the silent auction, stemmed glassware, and open bar from 2-5PM. GA tickets will run you ten bucks and will come with a beer, mug, and entry from 5-10PM. To my knowledge, all auction items for both the live and silent auctions were donated either by local breweries, restaurants, bottle shops, or from generous beer geeks. I’m pretty sure everyone in my tasting group donated something towards the cause! I personally donated a 100% Barrel Aged Cuir from the Bruery, mostly because everything else I have comes from portland…which everyone attending the event will have either already tried or currently have in their cellar.

If you’re in PDX this Saturday, come one down and drink to a good cause!
