The Gorge Hops and Hogs Fest benefits local non-profit organizations. For 2018, we selected the Columbia Gorge Veterans Museum.
The mission of the Columbia Gorge Veterans Museum is to honor military veterans, past and present, from all branches of the Armed Forces, with primary focus on veterans from Wasco, Sherman, Klickitat, Skamania, and Hood River Counties; Inspire and educate visitors about the region’s extensive military heritage; and educate students in grades K-12 about the region’s military heritage through the stories of our veterans. The Columbia Gorge Veterans Museum is a collaboration between The Dalles Legion Post 19 and the Mid-Columbia Veterans Memorial Committee. The Gorge Hops and Hogs Fest partners with the Columbia Gorge Veterans Museum, to support the amazing work they do!
Thank you to all the wonderful beer-loving folks who gladly down a pint or three to give back to organizations that help make our community a better place.
