Brewers for Beaches Save the Ocean One Pint at a Time
Ocean Blue is partnering with several breweries in 2019 to make the most impact. Coastal cleanup efforts are underway with support of craft beer brewers and drinkers. Brewers protect the ocean by helping remove tons of plastic and marine debris from U.S. beaches.
Featured Partner for Beaches Sunriver Brewing Co.
Brewers for Beaches Save the Ocean One Drink at a Time with a portion of sales supporting Ocean Blue volunteer beach cleanup efforts.
We know good beer starts out with clean water!
Breweries across the U.S. are invited to help save the Ocean by donating the Blue Beaches Program.
Sunriver Brewing Company - Bend, Oregon $5,000.00 Their award-winning brew gives Oregonians something to be proud about, but did you know that Sunriver Brewing Company is putting their amazing beer to good use for the environment? Sunriver Brewing is giving $5,000 in 2019 to clean rivers and beaches in Oregon. Not only are they financially supporting Ocean Blue efforts, this brewery is showing up with their team to partake in the cleanup efforts.
For information on how to join a Sunriver Brewing sponsored event, check out Ocean Blue events here. Local Oregon cleanups have taken place at the Deschutes River in Bend, Lincoln City and Newport on the Oregon Coast. The next two events will be held in Tillamook and along the Willamette River in Eugene.
Ecliptic Brewing - Portland, Oregon $672.00 Earlier in March, this Portland brewery committed to donating 10% of one day’s sales and ended up raising $672 for Ocean Blue Trees for Streams and Blue Beaches in the Portland area all the way to the Northern Oregon coast. Join Ocean Blue on April 20th in Manzanita for Annual Oregon Coast Cleanup and Awareness Day, proclamation signed by Gov. Kate Brown.
Block 15 Brewing - Corvallis, Oregon $500.00 Block 15 joined Ocean Blue on Nye Beach in Newport, Oregon in June of 2018 for World Ocean Day. Last year, the local Corvallis Brewery raised nearly $1000 for Ocean Blue cleanups through their People’s Pint program.
They are continuing their support of Ocean Blue’s mission to Save the Ocean in 2019. So far, Block 15 has donated $500 in 2019 to beach and urban stream restoration projects in collaboration with the City of Corvallis and Ocean Blue Project.
Mt. Lowe Brewing - Arcadia, California $500.00 Mt. Lowe Brewing is the first microbrewery in Arcadia, California. Mt. Lowe is also California’s first brewery to support Ocean Blue volunteer beach cleanups one pint at a time. Last February, 10% of one day’s sales was donated to Ocean Blue Project for clean beaches and river projects in Southern California.
Arcadia’s Mt. Lowe Brewing is both pet and family friendly, just like Ocean Blue beach cleanups and tree planting events. Ocean Blue is collaborating with NASA for research on cleaning up runoff water using fungi as a strategy.
