PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Powell’s Books and Ex Novo Brewing are launching a beer to help support independent bookstores and booksellers across the U.S.
The City of Books IPA are slated to be sold for one day — Oct. 16 — from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Powell’s Books’ iconic location on Burnside in downtown Portland, with 10% of proceeds going to the Book Industry Charitable Foundation, a nonprofit helping bookstore owners, sellers and comic store employees and owners with emergency financial aid.
The sales of the beer — at $15.99 for a four-pack of 16 oz. cans — will be limited and are expected to fly off of shelves. There will also be limited quantities of the beer at Ex Novo’s North Portland and Beaverton locations.
