Rook's Gambit is a new community supported private venue housed by The Rook Private Garden & Stronghold located in Eliot neighborhood. The Rook's Gambit is committed to brew, music, and celebration via regular hosting of fine craft beers & cider on self-serve taps along with occasional showings of Portland talent. The venue receives support from the volunteer time, monetary donations, and camaraderie of participants. All funds go towards the direct cost of maintaining the venue and scheduling shows. Excess donations will be re-routed annually to an outside charitable cause within the surrounding Portland community.
