Ninkasi Funds for Firefighters
Portland Fire Fighters' Association and Ninkasi Brewing are teaming up once again to raise funds for the Portland Fire Fighters' Charitable Fund. Throughout the month of September, a portion of the proceeds from every keg of Ninkasi beer sold in Portland will be contributed to the fund. When you're out, ask for a pint of Ninkasi to contribute!
Ninkasi is also hosting events in the Portland area to support the cause (and in Vancouver and Salem to support their locals as well). Find one near you, and join the fun!

Operation Warm - Coats for Kids
Portland Firefighters keep children warm this winter by giving them new American-made coats.
Thanks to donations from great community businesses Tripwire and Ninkasi Brewing, we were able to keep hundreds of Portland children in need of a coat warm this winter. We partner with Operation Warm to get these amazing coats made right here in the USA.
Many thanks to all the firefighters who showed up off duty this morning to make this event a huge success!
If you would like to help us keep Portland Children warm please visit: www.operationwarm.org/portland
