Abram Goldman-Armstrong is currently facing extremely large medical bills and rehabilitation expenses upwards of $10k and is unfortunately not eligible for remunerative assistance. As well, due to the physical nature of his profession, he will be unable to work for multiple months while awaiting recovery following the recent knee surgery to repair his torn meniscus and ACL.

Various businesses and some of Abe's friends are attempting to raise money for this highly-supportive member of our community who touches so many integral aspects of Portland’s culture: craft beer, Timbers, and love of the Cascadia region. In addition to cheerleading Portland culture, as an avid homebrewer, he has held various OBC board positions as President, Communications Chair, and Festival Coordinator, faithfully serving for multiple years.

If you would like to help to Support Our Abe, come on out for one or more of the various events being held below.

   Thanks and cheers!

There will be a raffle including vintage Timbers gear, current Timbers gear, tickets, scarves, gift certificates, shirts, sweatshirts and various other swag! There should also be a keg that with every pint purchased a portion will go to Abe!"

Belmont Station (Aug 22nd):
"Belmont Station on Monday, August, 22nd will hold CDAbe Day where they will be pouring a variety of Cascadian Dark Ales with 100% of the proceeds going to help pay Abe's medical expenses. It's his tireless pursuit which culminated in the category, if not the name, being recognized as an official judged category by the Brewers Association. Expect to see Barley Brown's, Natian, Widmer, Elliott Bay, Rock Bottom, Oakshire, Boneyard, Stone, Phillips and more. Let's make sure Abe can keep walking and doing his tireless evangelizing for craft beer."
