Helping Newport Fishermen's Wives with Beer

We raised money for the local non-profit through the John Maier Coastal Brew Fest.

Honored to have been able to help the Newport Fisherman's Wives by raising money for them during the Rogue Ales & Spirits John Maier Coastal Brew Fest which featured beers brewed by breweries all along the Pacific Coast.


June 24, 2019 — Breweries from all along the Pacific Coast came out to support the Newport Fishermen's Wives organization during last month's John Maier Coastal Brew Fest. And we were proud to host them.

Everyone from Fort George Brewery to Pelican Brewing Co. to De Garde Brewing showed up and we were able to pour their beer for a good cause.

So many of our fellow Rogues showed up that day to help us in this effort.

Then on June 12, we invited the members of the Newport Fishermen's Wives to our Bayfront Public House for oysters, pizza and to accept our donation. We were able to raise $2,500 for their cause.

The Newport Fishermen's Wives provide support for the community in Newport, Oregon. Their aim is to promote safety within the fishing industry, provide seafood education and support the families within the fishing community. Part of what they do includes a scholarship for local students and providing assistance to fishing families during the holidays. We are honored to be able to support these efforts in any way we can through our Rogue Foundation.
