Ogden River Brewing LLC and Ogden City Department of Animal Services have partnered with Weber County Animal Services to bring the Ogden animal lover community together for Pints ââfor Pups, a dog adoption and fundraising event. fund on Saturday July 10, 1-4 pm at ORB.
A $ 25 ticket includes access to the event, lunch, entry to the raffle and a portrait with your puppy.
The ORB patio, where Pints ââfor Pups will be held, was officially announced as “dog-friendly” in a Facebook post on June 18. “Good dogs” are always welcome to accompany their humans on the shaded patio by the river; and for this adoption event and fundraiser, they should come âcamera readyâ.
Attendees can also look forward to a new beer that was launched on Tuesday – Magnificent Golden Mutt – specially crafted by head brewer Pat Winslow for the event using several different grains from storage to create the âpoochâ beer.
According to the description, the “sweet and easy to drink” golden ale is sweet on the hops with moderate flavors and aromas of crackers and toast that “really shine”. Notes of pineapple and stone fruit make this colorful beer the perfect match for “barbecuing, sunbathing and playing with Fido!” “
Winslow and ORB chef Bridger Fawcett are currently working together on a unique offering of barbecue lunch sandwiches, with a vegetarian option included.
Pints ââfor Pups has been brewing for years for Winslow, an event that combines his passions for beer making, animals and the community. âTogether we can make a difference, drink beer and help a dog. How cool is that? âHe said in a statement.
When asked why it took years for Pints ââand Pups to happen, Winslow replied, âI didn’t have a brewery yet! And now he’s doing it, thanks to a community-supported Kickstarter campaign that raised over $ 30,000 and Bryan Wrigley of Lotus Company / Lotus Craft, who saw the value of Winslow’s vision.
Winslow, a 42-year-old retired conductor looking for the perfect location for his brewery, was sought out by Wrigley, who liked the idea of ââbringing craft beer to the development of Riverbend; the two quickly became friends and business partners with a common love for the community and “more than a few pints of house beers”.
âEveryone who knows Pat loves Pat,â Wrigley said in a statement. âHe exudes an authenticity and a passion for what he does that is as unique as it is contagious. Very early on, I knew I wanted to make this dream grow with him.
Since opening in October last year, Winslow has been touring ORB daily, talking to people, asking for beer and food reviews, and cuddling.
It is hoped that Pints ââfor Pups will be an annual affair, and one of the many other events organized by ORB to give back, said James Soares, COO. He said it was the âperfect way to get involved in the community,â citing the company’s mission to be a responsible business partner with the community through its core values: people, planet, profit.
All proceeds from ticket sales and $ 1 for every pint of Magnificent Golden Mutt will go to the Town of Ogden Animal Services Department and Weber County Animal Services in hopes of raising $ 10,000 for the organizations. .
