The Oregon Brewshed® Alliance is a coalition of brewing businesses and brewing community partners who understand the value of clean water and protected forest watersheds. The Oregon Brewshed® Alliance supports Oregon Wild and its work to protect and restore the wild lands, wildlife, and waters  that make our state a great place to live, work, and enjoy great beer.

Great beer doesn’t start at the tap – great beer begins with clean water.

Beer is over 90% water, after all, and that water is a product of the land that it flows through.

Great Beer Begins
with Clean Water

What We Do

Oregon Brewshed® Alliance partners work to support Oregon Wild, an environmental non-profit organization that has worked to protect Oregon’s wild places and waters since 1974, to educate the craft beer drinking community about protected watersheds and their essential role in Oregon’s celebrated craft brewing industry, and to advocate for their brewsheds. Because a healthy brewshed means better beer and cider!

Oregon Brewshed® Alliance partners have made a difference supporting important conservation efforts in a variety of ways. 

  • Helped make Oregon Brewshed® Brewfests a success (4 in Portland, and 3 in Eugene)

  • Raised over $60,000 to support conservation work

  • Donated beer, cider, and kombucha to Oregon Wild’s Call of the Wild fundraiser and other events

  • Supported efforts to protect new Wilderness areas, State Scenic Waterways, Wild & Scenic Rivers, and reform logging laws to better protect streams by signing letters to elected officials, placing ads, and penning opinion pieces

  • Hosted more pint-nights, tap-takeovers, and education nights for the public at brewpubs and tap houses than we can count

Oregon’s forests provide and protect the clean, cold water we all love - but they need our protection.
