Many of us have seen and heard of the devastation in Houston from Hurricane Harvey. For some of our beer industry family, it’s is as close as watching photos of their family’s home completely under water. As a result, Beer Party PDX and the following beer bars in Portland and Vancouver are joining forces the week of September 4th to raise funds for several charities. Get out and enjoy a brew for a good cause!

The following locations will be donating 10% of sales from open to close to Wings of Rescue and the Houston Humane Society. They will also be accepting pet food donations for the Oregon Humane Society. So far, Wings of Race has flown over 50 pets to Oregon – these are animals ready for adoption. This allows room for the displaced pets that are going to the Houston Humane Society so owners can find them more easily.
