PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

An iconic Trail Blazers player now has a specialty beer that was created in his honor and in support of a Portland children's hospital.  

Gilgamesh Brewing is releasing "The Terry Porter" ale, a porter-style brew, throughout Oregon next week.

Terry Porter, a Blazers ambassador who was the starting point guard for the Portland teams that won two Western Conference championships in the early 90s, is a board member of the Doernbecher Children's Hospital Foundation.

Gilgamesh approached him with the concept of The Terry Porter brew, with a portion of proceeds going to the foundation.

For each 22 ounce bottle sold in stores, Gilgamesh and its distribution partner, Columbia Distributing, will donate $2 to the foundation, as well as $40 for every half-barrel keg sold in bars and restaurants across Oregon.

At the Gilgamesh Campus, $1 will be donated for every Terry Porter pint purchased in the restaurant, and $2 during Blazer games.

Terry Porter bottles will be featured at Roth's Fresh Market and New Seasons Markets from mid-January through April.

Bottle signings with Porter are also planned. The first will be 5:30-7:30 p.m. Jan. 13 at Gilgamesh Brewing, 2065 Madrona Ave., Salem. Another is set for Blitz Ladd, 2239 S.E. 11th Ave., Portland, from 3:30-7:30 p.m. Jan. 16. A third bottle signing event will take place at New Seasons Concordia, 5320 N.E. 33rd Ave., Portland, 5-7 p.m. Feb. 24.
