Tour de Brew: Pub Crawl for a Cause, By Bike
Thursday, October 16, 2014
Rain or shine, the Tour de Brew blends a good cause, good schwag and good beer.
Whatever hardships we face in our lives, chances are walking for hours to get clean water isn't one of them. We simply walk across the room and turn the tap. Yet, in the Central African Republic, nearly 75% of the population spends hours every day, walking to unsanitary sources to obtain enough water for their daily use.
Water for Good helps communities in these areas begin to break the cycles of sickness and poverty by providing access to clean water. Water for Good actually drills the wells and rehabs the wells. The organization hires, and trains a Central African staff whose leadership and commitment to this work ensures that it will be sustainable and improves the likelihood of success.
In support of these efforts four Portland pubs and Mudlove—a custom ceramics shop that gives 20% of its profits to social causes—have teamed up in support of Water for Good's mission. Your $50 registration fee will provide clean water for a year for two people in Africa.

You'll also get four craft beers by some of Portland's finest brewers, a handmade MudLOVE beer stein, a MudLOVE "bike" or "beer" bracelet and the satisfaction of knowing you've made a huge difference in the lives of others.
The ride starts at noon at the Oregon Public House, travels to Hopworks Bikebar , followed by Ecliptic Brewing, and ends at Ex Novo for he post-ride party at 4pm.
Event Date: 10/25 Event Time: Noon Location: Oregon Public House Price: $50
