Brewery Release: OR: Bend: Deschutes Brewery raises over $69,000 for Great Lakes and local schools

Press Release

Oregon’s Deschutes Brewery set up the world’s largest pop-up pub in Chicago last weekend and raised a total of $69,762.82 for Alliance for the Great Lakes and local schools. On August 22, the brewery brought its 402-foot custom, transportable bar to Chicago’s Logan Square, serving 150 kegs to approximately 8,500 people. The one-day-only event donated 100 percent of proceeds to the Alliance and neighborhood schools.

With a soft launch in Deschutes Brewery’s hometown of Bend, Oregon and three national stops in Philadelphia, Cleveland and Chicago so far this year, the Street Pub has raised more than $160,000 total for charity.

This giant bar is traveling to select locations around the country to benefit the communities where it sets up its 40 taps. Next stops include Minneapolis on September 19, Denver on October 17 and Sacramento on November 14.
