The Portland Chapter is proud to announce a collaboration between our chapter,  94/7 Alternative Portland and Alameda Brewing Co., to produce a special beer – the Alternator IPA!  The Alternator IPA is a sessionable IPA brewed locally by Alameda Brewing, with a light body and huge tropical hop flavor making it prefect for taking to the beach, mountains or your favorite swimming hole this summer.

A portion of sales from every beer purchased will be given to our chapter to support our work on protecting our ocean, waves, beaches and rivers!  94/7 and Alameda Brewing Co. wanted this special beer to support a local non-profit who’s mission was in alignment with the spirit of this brew of this getting outside and enjoying nature! They were inspired by the Chapter’s work in banning plastic bags at grocery stores and large retailers here in Portland and our Green Street Stewards who help keep the City’s bioswales clean and functioning, helping to reduce stormwater run-off and improving local water quality.

“After years of saying “It’s Different Here,” we can finally say, “It’s Different Beer!” Program Director Mark Hamilton joked. “But seriously, we’re thrilled to offer this new refreshing IPA to the microbrew connoisseurs of Portland and help a great organization like Surfrider in the process.”

The Alternator will be available in blue cans starting in May at select Fred Meyer retailers in the greater Portland Metro area, and it’s already on tap right now at the Alameda Brewhouse, located at 4765 NE Fremont Street in Portland.

So grab a pint or a sixer, it doesn’t get any easier to support your local chapter!
