Pints for a Purpose

The program is a simple one, you drink beer and we donate to charity.

In 2013 local entrepreneur Luke Colvin was seeking a way to have a bigger impact in the community beyond his successful service based arbor business and Buoy Beer Company was born. The idea for Buoy Beer to have a positive impact on our community gave shape to the Pints for a Purpose program launched at the beginning of 2016. Every quarter our Community Involvement Committee chooses a non-profit to receive $1 for every pint of a specialty IPA ordered in our Astoria brewpub.


This Quarter’s Pint For A Purpose charity

The Lunch Buddy Mentoring Program is an organization that matches elementary school students in Clatsop County who could benefit from the attention of caring adult volunteers once a week during their school lunch periods.

Connecting people, enriching lives, and helping children reach their full potential through success in school.
