PORTLAND, OREGON ... On August 27th, the Ambassador Board of New Avenues for Youth presents Brews for New Avenues– a unique fundraising event that combines the city’s philanthropic spirit with its love of all things craft beer.  Now in its fifth year, Brews for New Avenues features the world’s largest rare beer auction as well as exclusive bottlings and kegs from 40+ different local, national and international breweries.
