Deschutes Brewery founder Gary Fish was awarded a civic leadership award at the 2012 Governors' Gold Awards.

The award recognizes one individual each year who has shown a commitment to promoting quality of life in his or her community. Fish was chosen based on the recommendation of mayors from around the state who recognized his support of local art, music, natural resources and more.

Under Fish’s direction, the brewery gives back $1 per barrel to charitable causes each year, equaling more than a quarter million dollars.
