Pints for A Purpose Kick-Off with Riverkeeper Ale 1/21

We’re pleased to announce our first 2013 Pints for a Purpose recipient – Rogue Riverkeeper. Through our two-year-old beer sales donation program, this Southern Oregon nonprofit organization will receive a portion of sales from every pint of specialty beer sold for three weeks. The kick-off night for Pints for riverkeeper logoa Purpose, and debut of the celebratory Riverkeeper Ale, is slated for Monday, January 21st at 5pm.

Rogue Riverkeeper works to protect and restore the water quality and fish populations in the Rogue River Basin. Their focus includes field work, community action, advocacy and enforcement. Some of their specific projects involve collecting bacteria testing, organizing volunteers through their Riverwatch Program, and marking storm drains in the Ashland area with “No Dumping, Drains to Creek” markers. To learn more about this fantastic nonprofit or join the flow of local volunteers, visit their website and come to the brewpub Monday night to toast a specialty beer with members in-person.


About the Riverkeeper Ale

This light-brown brew offers toasted aromas of graham cracker and a light to medium body. Warm, biscuity flavors are followed by a slightly dry and nutty finish with mild bitterness. 4.0% abv. 25 IBU

• Briess Carabrown

• Briess Organic Carpils

• Best Acidulated

• Briess Midnight Wheat

Hops

• Bittering: Willamette

• Flavor/Aroma: Golding


Food Pairing

This medium intensity beer matches well with menu items in the same realm. To complement flavors, look for foods with toasted bread or nut-flavored attributes. Beef and pork, especially when roasted, work well with the brown ale style, as do nutty cheeses like Gruyere and Asiago. From our menu we suggest:

  • Wood Fired Pretzelhouse salad
  • Hummus Plate
  • House Greens with Blue Cheese Crumbles and Candied Walnuts
  • Pesto Pizza
  • Three Meat Pizza
  • Standing Stone Cheeseburger

We hope to see you this Monday evening at 5pm as we toast this round of benefiting beer! For the kick-off party, 50 cents of every pint of Riverkeeper Ale sold will go to the organization. If over 50 pints are sold, we’ll bump up the contribution to $1 per pint, so come down and help this active and passionate local nonprofit with a pint to benefit the cause!
