GILGAMESH BREWING’S LIMITED EDITION PORTER HONORS TRAILBLAZER, RAISES FUNDS FOR DOERNBECHER CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL FOUNDATION
PORTLAND, Oregon (January 6, 2016) – Terry Porter, ambassador for the Portland Trail Blazers, and Gilgamesh Brewing want Oregonians to quaff a pint or two for a good cause.
The former NBA point guard and the Salem brewery have teamed up to create a new, limited-edition craft beer – The Terry Porter. It’s a porter-style brew, of course, but Gilgamesh’s latest release is more than just a play on words to sell a dark, malty beer. The Terry Porter was created to honor and raise funds for the Doernbecher Children’s Hospital Foundation.
For each 22oz. bottle sold in retail, Gilgamesh and its distribution partner, Columbia Distributing, will donate $2 to the foundation, as well as $40 for every half-barrel keg sold in bars and restaurants across Oregon. At the Gilgamesh Campus, $1 will be donated for every Terry Porter pint purchased in the restaurant, and $2 during Blazer games. Patrons are encouraged to donate on their own as well.
