Brews for New AvenuesBrews for New Avenues, “Portland’s rare beer auction for a great cause,” takes place this Saturday at the Green Dragon in Portland, Ore.  The fundraising event is perfectly suited for a city in love with beer and offers auctions of rare beer plus local craft beer on draft. Auction items come from Portland and beyond and include a Hair of the Dog 2009 Fred from the Wood magnum, a five-year Westvleteren 12 Vertical and a Funkwerks nine-bottle set among others.

A sold out VIP session will kick off the event from 2:00 – 5:00 p.m. with hors d’oeuvres, exclusive tap beers and a silent auction. The party then cranks up with general admission from 5:00 – 10:00 p.m. Live music, special keg tappings on the hour, a live auction, raffle and more are sure to please beer enthusiasts while supporting a great cause.

New Avenues for Youth is a Portland non-profit organization that helps homeless and at-risk youth. Going beyond meeting basic needs, New Avenues has an alternative school and provides job training, all with the goal of providing a path of hope and possibilities for the youth they serve. 100% of the proceeds from the event that last year attracted nearly 500 people and raised $17,000 will go to New Avenues to support their programs.
