The name says it all. The current crisis in Ukraine hits home for us, especially Rogue president, Dharma Tamm whose family was displaced when Russia invaded Estonia for the second time in 1944. It’s not in our DNA to sit back and watch injustices unfold without raising a little bit of hell, so we released a Northwest IPA in support of the Ukrainian people.
“Since day one we’ve vowed to give back to our community – whether locally, nationally or internationally,” says Dharma Tamm, Rogue President. “As soon as we saw what was happening in Ukraine, we knew we had to do something. We quickly came together and brewed a beer to serve in our pubs, with 100% of the proceeds being donated to the Ukrainian people. The requests for F*#K Putin came flooding in so we canned the beer to sell nationally. We’re proud to be able to take a stance and raise money and awareness for such an important cause.”
F*# K Putin IPA beer is available on tap at all Rogue pubs, and cans and merch are available for online sale while supplies last. 100% of the proceeds from all F*#K Putin beer and merch sales will benefit GlobalGiving Ukraine Crisis Relief Fund, which helps local, trusted nonprofits provide vital access to education, food, medical services, and more. On July 18, 2022 we donated $15,000 to the Ukraine Crisis Relief Fund.
“We are so appreciative of all of our donors for stepping up during this critical time,” says Gabriela Molina, Global Giving. “All donations to the Ukraine Crisis Relief Fund will initially help first responders conduct search and rescue operations and meet survivors’ urgent needs, including the provision of shelter, medical care, food, and clean water. Once initial relief work is complete, money from this fund will be allocated by Global Giving for longer-term recovery efforts—largely led by local organizations.”
So let’s raise a glass against tyranny.
