Pints for Paws: Craft Beer Festival in Berkeley

Submitted by on May 16, 2019 – 8:15 amNo Comment

Pints for Paws, Berkeley, CaliforniaThe sixth annual “Pints for Paws” — a craft beer festival — takes place from 2 to 5 p.m. June 1,2019, at 2700 Ninth Street, Berkeley, California.

Sponsored by the Berkeley Humane Society, it raises funds to save the lives of cats and dogs. This annual event is organized by volunteers, so all funds raised go directly to the medical and behavioral needs of Berkeley Humane’s dogs and cats.

“There’s nothing more powerful than our community coming together to support a good cause,” said Barry Braden, event chair and co-founder of Fieldwork Brewing Company. “And when the cause is the impressive work being done by Berkeley Humane it makes this beer event all that much more special. Fieldwork is proud to be a presenting sponsor again this year.”

At this dog-friendly event, tickets include unlimited tastings from craft breweries, cider makers, and artisan winemakers all while enjoying live music. The event will also feature a silent auction with autographed memorabilia from popular Bay Area sports teams, including a team-signed basketball from the Warriors. New this year, Off the Grid is providing an international food truck experience including cuisine from South Africa and the Caribbean, with plenty of vegetarian and vegan options.

“Pints for Paws brings together the business community and local residents who love animals,” says Jesse Arreguín, mayor of Berkeley. “This volunteer-led event is a true community celebration that highlights Berkeley Humane’s dedication to caring for dogs and cats that just need a second chance.”

Berkeley Humane transports over 1,200 animals annually from municipal shelters all around the Bay Area and Central Valley who first need medical or behavior care in order to be adopted. The funds raised from this festival support Berkeley Humane’s commitment to provide complete care for shelter animals––from rescue to rehabilitation to placement––to dramatically increase their chances of finding new homes.

The Berkeley-East Bay Humane Society (Berkeley Humane) has origins dating back to 1895. Today, Berkeley Humane serves the people and animals of our community by providing life-saving programs for cats and dogs, cultivating compassion, and strengthening the human-animal bond. With the support of our community and a dedicated, talented team of volunteers and staff, Berkeley Humane transports animals from municipals shelters who are often in need of medical care, improved nutrition, training, and lots of love. In 2018, Berkeley Humane found homes for more than 1200 dogs and cats and touched the lives of over 1000 additional pets through our programs and services.
