“Our mission is to brew the highest quality beer while providing exceptional service to our customers. We cannot achieve either of these goals without the highest quality ingredients” says Oakshire Founder Jeff Althouse. “We established a partnership with the McKenzie River Trust in 2011, and quickly realized we wanted to do more to protect our brewing source water.” In 2011 Oakshire  Brewing  donated the proceeds from three Single Batch beers: Greenpower Pale Ale, Land Trust Lager and Skookumchuck Wild Ale as part of EWEB’s 100th anniversary celebration

“It makes us very proud to have again earned Oakshire’s support. The 1% for Watersheds program demonstrates Oakshire’s ongoing commitment to clean water and healthy watersheds, something that benefits our entire community,” said Joe Moll, Executive Director of the McKenzie River Trust.

So to recap, January 1st (2013) 1% of revenue from Watershed India Pale Ale in the Southern Willamette Valley will be sent to McKenzie River Trust. Get out there and start buying pints, growlers, cans, or bottles of Watershed India Pale Ale.
