Label design for Migration Brewing Company's The Wilderness Northwest Red Ale, released to support Oregon Wild's 40th anniversary and available in bottles only at a "Call of the Wild" fundraising event on October 17, 2014. Oregon Wild is an Oregon nonprofit agency which works to "protect and restore our wildlands, wildlife, and waters as an enduring legacy for future generations" (Oregon Wild website). An October 16 article by D.J. (D.J. Paul) in 'Brewpublic' titled 'Migration Brewing honors Oregon Wild's 40th anniversary with the wilderness' quotes Colin Rath, "Healthy, protected forests mean clean water. And clean water is a big reason why Oregon has such great beer. Oregon Wild works to protect our water and forests and that's allowed Oregon breweries to produce some of the best beer on the planet." The article goes on to say that The Wilderness was a tribute to Oregon Wild's efforts to conserve special areas across the state. It was brewed using three Oregon hop varieties, each representing wilderness areas Oregon Wild has helped to permanently protect: Mount Hood hops for the Mount Hood Wilderness, Santiam hops for the Santiam Wilderness, and Cascade hops for the Three Sisters Wilderness. The label features forest, mountains and a howling wolf at the bottom of the label next to the statement "Celebrating 40 years of standing up for Oregon's wildlands, wildlife and waters, Oregon Wild has teamed up with Migration Brewing Co. to bring you this special limited release Northwest red ale."
