Portland, OR. The country’s first nonprofit brew house keeps getting more national attention. Just last month, CBS this morning and Forbes featured the Oregon Public House. Since 2013, the brewery has raised over $120,000 for local nonprofits. When customers purchase their food and/or beverage they decide whom the profit will benefit. Staffers and supporters from nonprofits like The Wetlands Conservancy take turns working as servers. Here’s a video explaining the slogan “Have a Pint – Change the World!”

The Oregon Public house has been featured on over a dozen broadcast programs, including The Colbert Report.

And newspaper articles? Well, they were featured in the New York Times.

Oregon Public House President, Ryan Saari says, “Portland, Oregon is the craft brewing capital of America and supports an extensive, thriving pub culture. Portland also hosts more non-profit organizations per capita then any other city in America. Our vision is to leverage these two unique attributes by creating a family-friendly pub environment for our neighbors.” The establishment is located at 700 NE Dekum St.

Have a Pint - Change the World!

The Oregon Public House is a place where people can learn more about non-profit organizations and discover practical ways they can become involved.

The Ex Novo business model includes selling bottled beer at retail establishments. The beer buzz may continue for breweries benefiting nonprofits. Especially as the amount of money they raise continues to increase.
