Brewshed® Brewery Partner Membership

Alliance partners recognize the connection between brewing great beer and protecting the forests and watersheds that make it possible. Brewshed® Brewery Partners sign a pledge to support the protection and restoration of the forests, wildlands, and waters that are the lifeblood of Oregon’s renowned microbrews. In fulfillment of this pledge, Alliance partners display Oregon Brewshed® Alliance materials in their establishments, participate in the annual Oregon Brewshed® Brewfest, and host and participate in other Alliance events, which may include:

  • Happy hours and pint nights, donating a % of sales
  • Crafting special beers with tapping events and/or sales proceeds going to the Alliance
  • Collaborating with other Alliance partners for special brews, hikes, and events
  • Donating beer to Oregon Brewshed® Alliance/Oregon Wild events
  • Depending on brewery size and/or desired membership benefits, members can also directly contribute at a higher financial level to support the Alliance and specific projects

Brewshed® Brewing Community Partner Membership

If your business or organization is not a brewery, but is involved in the craft brewing community in some way, you can join the Oregon Brewshed® Alliance as a Brewing Community Partner. You’ll sign the OregonBrewshed® Alliance pledge and collaborate with Oregon Wild and other Alliance members to determine the best ways to participate and further the Alliance mission. Some examples of Brewing Community Partner contributions include:

  • Coordinating nature hikes with brewers and organizing benefit tap events
  • Hosting tap takeovers with one or multiple Alliance brewery members and/or brewshed® pub crawls (beer-focused pubs, beer tour companies)
  • Donating ingredients (hops, barley, rye, etc.) for creating special new brews (salmon safe farms)
  • Donating or providing a discount on merchandise or marketing/advertising services to promote the Oregon Brewshed® Alliance (branding, merchandise, communications companies)
  • Sponsoring or hosting special events, such as the quarterly sustainability workshop/lecture series for Alliance members (businesses with an event space)
  • Direct financial contribution to support the Oregon Brewshed® Alliance or support for a specific project
