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 – Clatsop Animal Assistance  CAA

Clatsop Animal Assistance, Inc. (CAA) is a non-profit animal welfare organization dedicated to promoting and providing for the needs of the Clatsop County Animal Shelter’s homeless pets. They also promote animal adoption as the first option. CAA volunteers work hard to improve the quality of life for these animals, most directly by assisting the Animal Shelter, which has limited resources with which to deal with strays and unwanted pets within Clatsop County.
