Beers for Beagles: Great Beer and a Great Cause
We have a lot of great events at Lonerider, and we are fortunate to often be able to use them to raise money for any number of worthwhile causes. My personal favorite, and a bit of a pet project (pun intended) is Beers for Beagles.
My wife and I have had the pleasure of working with Triangle Beagle Rescue for several years. She manages all of the social media accounts for them and we have fostered over 50 beagles in our home. The craft beer community is so incredibly generous, so of course we wanted to try to find a way to bring together Lonerider and Triangle Beagle Rescue to help raise funds for this great organization. The result was Beers for Beagles.
Twice a year, we hold the event at Lonerider and invite volunteers, foster families, perspective adopters, and dog lovers to come out and enjoy live music, great food, amazing beer and, of course, beagles! Recently we held Beers for Beagles III and the turnout was incredible. If you have ever been around beagles, you know how much fun they can be. So you can only imagine what how around DOZENS of them can be!
Of course, an awesome beagle event deserves an awesome beagle inspired beer. So our brewer Joseph (who together with this wife have actually adopted two beagles from Triangle Beagle Rescue) always whips up a few kegs of the always popular Peanut Butter Sweet Josie. If you have not tried it, I highly encourage you to come out to the next Beers for Beagles event and give it a try…you will not be disappointed!
We have not set the date yet for Beers For Beagles IV but stay tuned to our events page for your next opportunity to come hang with the beagles. And of course, bring your pup!
