Pints for Pups Comes to Phoenixville this Saturday

Beer lovers and dog lovers from all over the Phoenixville area will gather next Saturday, August 9, 2014 to celebrate their passion for canines and their love of imbibing – all for a great cause! The Humane Society Phoenixville’s first ever Pints for Pups event will be held from 4 to 7 p.m. at the parking lot of Bridge and Main Streets in Phoenixville. The event, which began in 2005 by the Humane Society of Berks County, a Humane Pennsylvania partner organization, consists of dozens of beers in which to sample, a full buffet, silent auction, dog-friendly snacks, music from The Barren Wells and much more!

As has always been the case for this event, all 21 years of age and over individuals are welcome to attend, as well as well-behaved and leashed canine companions. All proceeds go directly to aid Humane Pennsylvania in its mission to ensure that every companion animal lives in a safe, loving and secure home. “We have a lot of fun putting this event on in Berks County and as we look to expand our animal care programs in the Phoenixville area, it made sense to bring one of our best and biggest events, Pints for Pups, to this area as well,” stated Karel Minor, President and CEO of Humane Pennsylvania, The Humane Society Phoenixville’s parent organization. “Whether people are coming out for the beer, to get a cool pint glass or because it’s something fun to do with their dog, it doesn’t matter as every attendee helps support our overall organization’s mission and that’s what is important.”

I loved it and moved to PA to be with my boyfriend (now husband), where I began interning for a bakery in Chestnut Hill. Over the course of 7 years I worked my way up from intern to pastry chef until I decided to leave in 2012.
