The Brewmaster’s Taproom Is Hosting A BBQ To Benefit Rez Dog Rescue

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.

There are lots of animal lovers in the Seattle area, including myself.  Most local breweries and craft beer bars (at least those that don’t serve food) are even dog friendly and encourage us to bring our furry friends along for a visit.

Counterbalance Brewing Company loves animals too, so they’ve organized an event this coming Saturday to benefit Vet Techs Without Borders, dedicated to improving animal welfare worldwide by connecting volunteer veterinary support staff to the organizations that need their help.  Also, coinciding with this event, Counterbalance will be releasing a new beer, a Belgian Golden Strong Ale.

Two Beers Partners With Lifelong To Create Lifelong Lager

I never cease to be amazed at how much the Seattle craft beer community does for charity.  Breweries, craft beer bars and, of course, all of us craft beer lovers can always get behind helping those in need.  Of course, it’s nice when providing that help also gives us the added bonus of even more great craft beer to drink.

Two Beers Brewing Company (CBM Sponsor) is one of those breweries that loves to give back.  They have teamed up with Lifelong, a leader in the fight against HIV/AIDS since 1983, to create Lifelong Lager, which will benefit Lifelong’s food program, Chicken Soup Brigade – providing nutritious meals in Washington to those living with serious illnesses like HIV, AIDS and cancer.

There will be a special preview event for Lifelong Lager at Two Beers Brewing’s tasting room, The Woods, on Friday, April 22.  Then, Lifelong Lager will be tapped at more than 150 restaurants throughout Western Washington on Thursday, April 28, supporting Lifelong’s Dining Out for Life event. For every keg sold, Lifelong will receive a $50 donation to help fund the Chicken Soup Brigade.
