One of the things that many people enjoy about the local craft beer scene is that the majority of craft breweries and craft beer bars (at least those that don’t serve their own food) are dog-friendly. That means we’re free to bring our well-behaved, furry, four-legged family members along with us when we visit many of our favorite craft beer spots.
Sadly, there are still too many dogs out there who are in desperate need of help, and that’s where rescue organizations like Rez Dog Rescue come in. With a focus on the Yakama Nation Indian Reservation and Yakima County in-general, Rez Dog Rescue does all they can to help abused, injured and unwanted dogs and cats and help them find their furever homes. To help them in their mission, The Brewmaster’s Taproom in Renton is hosting a BBQ fundraiser during Seattle Beer Week, with 100% of the proceeds going to benefit Rez Dog Rescue.
Here is the full press release from The Brewmaster’s Taproom:
Renton, WA – The Brewmaster’s Taproom, located in the Benson Heights area of Renton will be hosting a BBQ during Seattle Beer Week to raise much needed funds for Rez Dog Rescue out of Yakima, WA on Sunday, May 7th. The plates are $17 each and include brisket, pork belly, all the fixin’s and even a pint of Seattle Beer Week beer brewed by Bale Breaker Brewing. We will be donating 100% of the proceeds from the event to Rez Dog Rescue. Tickets can be purchased at the taproom or online: http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/2938763 where you can also donate to them directly.
Everything in the brewing community is full circle for them and they’re a very giving group of people! There’s an amazing hop farm family out in Yakima, the Perraults, which we were introduced to by Steve Luke, owner and head brewer from Cloudburst Brewing. The Perrault’s patriarch has dedicated his time to taking in and rehabilitating dogs that come off the Yakima Indian Reservation. We’ve decided to honor them by having a fundraiser for the organization they work with, Rez Dog Rescue!
Rez Dog Rescue is a non-profit pet rescue organization that focuses its rescue missions predominantly within the borders of the Yakama Nation Indian Reservation, as there is a great need. However, Rez Dog Rescue will go anywhere within Yakima County when there is a pet in need. Rez Dog Rescue’s overall mission is dedicated to rescuing abused, injured and unwanted dogs and cats in an effort to give them a second chance in life and find them loving forever homes.
The Brewmaster’s Taproom offers draft beer from some of its partner breweries, with 20 craft beers on tap, alongside draft cider and root beer. They feature beers from small, new breweries that are just starting out, as well as beers from more recognizable breweries, including unique brews often available only at the breweries’ taprooms. They also offer an amazing selection of beers in cans and bottles, including an impressive selection of rare, hard to find beers.
Rall recounts when she first found out about the Perrault Family Farm and later about Rez Dog Rescue, “Steve had just returned from the Perrault’s farm with tons of fresh hops. While enjoying the aroma, Steve was gushing – that’s the only way to describe it – about all the farm dogs the Perrault’s had and how ‘Grandpa Perrault’ was taking care of all of them. It wasn’t until later we found out about Rez Dog and that he was helping them specifically. The brewing industry is very dog friendly and we’re very excited to be supporting a region that does not get as much attention as it truly needs!”
Why not come out to Renton next Sunday the 7th and help our furry friends all while enjoying some delicious BBQ and craft beers on tap? You can purchase your tickets for this event at the link above for $17.00 (1$18.59 including service fee) or you can even just donate directly to Rez Dog Rescue ($10 minimum donation). Woof, woof!
Drink responsibly and stay safe out there.
