House That Beer Built

An exciting new partnership between Habitat for Humanity Portland/Metro East and local craft breweries and beer-related businesses

House That Beer Built is an exciting new partnership between Habitat for Humanity Portland/Metro East and local craft breweries and beer-related businesses. Partners pledge to raise funds through various events like tap takeovers, sales promotions and special events with the goal of collectively raising $75,000 to fully sponsor a home for a Portland family. This collaborative partnership idea first began in Fort Collins in 2013 and has since spread across the country, eventually making its mark in our very own hops-and-malt-loving city.   

House That Beer Built celebrates the strength and creativity of Oregon’s craft beer industry and its passion for community while funding affordable homeownership opportunities in Portland’s vibrant and diverse Cully neighborhood. In summer of 2018, we break ground on 15 new affordable homes in Cully Place.  

Join us at our partners’ events and help make the dream of homeownership a reality for local families in need of a decent place to live.
