Here at Standing Stone Brewing Co. we are committed to supporting people and the planet. Through our Pints for a Purpose program, we donate a portion of beer profits to a local nonprofit which shares our vision of environmental sustainability, local food, education and community.
The votes are in and Standing Stone employees have chosen four outstanding groups to benefit from this program. On a special evening, Standing Stone will donate $2 of every pint of beer sold in the brewpub from 5p-10p to the organization selected for that day. The Pints for a Purpose dates are as follows:
- Nov. 12 Ashland Food Project– The Ashland Food Project brings in over one-thousand pounds of food a year, one bag at a time, for local food banks. It encourages long-term, community involvement.
- Dec. 3 CASA of Jackson County– CASA volunteers speak-up for the safety and well-being of children who have come under the care of Child Welfare due to abuse and/or neglect. They are sometimes the only legal advocates these children have.
- Jan. 14 Rogue Valley Farm to School– This Southern Oregon non-profit educates children about our food system through hands-on farm and garden projects, and by increasing local foods in school cafeterias.
- Feb. 4 Friends of the Animal Shelter– FOTAS helps animals in area shelters by encouraging adoption, improving quality of life, promoting spaying and neutering pets, and educating the community about responsible pet guardianship and animal welfare.
Since it began, we’ve raised thousands of dollars for area non-profits. All beneficiaries are chosen through vote by our diverse group of employees, who live right here in Southern Oregon.

It’s not often you can enjoy a craft beer while helping others. So mark your calendars and join us at the brewery on the assigned day to help support these incredible area non-profits! And, as always, drink responsibly. Cheers!
