Drank: Do-Gooder IPA vs. British Invasion IPA (Oregon Public House & Pints vs. Hopworks & KBOO)

Lately, everyone is chasing charity with beer. Portland will soon have its first nonprofit brewery, Ex Novo, not far from its first nonprofit pub, Oregon Public House. And at that nonprofit pub, you’ll now find a nonprofit beer, Do-Gooder IPA. Brewed at Old Town’s Pints with a little help from the staff there, but using OPH’s own recipe plus hops and malt donated for the cause, Do-Gooder is a coppery IPA with a little toffee and a lingering bitterness. You’ll feel hot green hops in your nasal cavity after you’ve sipped. Meanwhile, Hopworks recently released a milder, English-style IPA called British Invasion to benefit KBOO community radio, which gets 50 cents from every pint sold. British Invasion is a little lighter in color, with a round and rosy sweetness, a little passionfruit and just enough bitterness to balance things out. I strongly prefer it—and I’m relieved someone in Portland is willing to keep a little something for themselves.
