Rescue Dog Red is a strong beer. Along with its 8% BAV, comes a strong color, full flavor, and a smooth aftertaste. It truly is a fantastic brew, being released on a fantastic occasion: Barcs & Brews.
Fairhope Brewing Company hosted the Baldwin County Humane Society for a pet adoption and beer release party back in early March. Not only did they host, but $2 of each tap pour sale went to the BARC team. Pet adoption hits a note in our household; we are the proud parents of three rescued Northern Breeds. Additionally, we have also fostered in support of our former local rescue in Bethlehem, PA. There are so many wonderful animals, old and young, in need of a fresh start and new furever home. Chances are, there are some humans that need them to enter their lives for similar benefits.
The venue is perfect for such an occasion. The inside is spacious, open, and very relaxing. The hosts and tenders are extremely polite and professional. There is an outside sitting area that allows for the animals to rest and greet possible adopters. Award winning BBQ was also in attendance as well as live music to sooth the soul.
And if the venue, food, brew, and music was not enough to make for a beautiful days....did we mention puppies, dogs, kittens, and cats?!? There was a lot of excitement and positive energy. Attendees participated with BARC team members, donated towards the cause, and picked up some swag. Best of all, was watching the hearts of kids and adults burst at the faces of the animals.
Before providing the small image gallery that concludes any DMG Blog; there is one story that stands out during the day. I met a very happily married couple, and now friends, David and Yvonne Walls. Like most days at the brewery, you meet new people and hopefully make some good friends. Well David and Yvonne have one kitten at home, Bruce, recently adopted within the last couple months. After some conversation with the BARC team members, it turns out Bruce's kitten sister was on location. Sometimes, the signs are so obvious, that the choice and chance are replaced by automatic response. Needless to say, Bruce and Betty are reunited.
I highly recommend to following Fairhope Brewing's Facebook Page as well as visiting their website for upcoming events. The FBC team constantly provides back to the community in one form or another. I highly recommend visiting the Baldwin County Humane Society if you begin pursing a furry friend to your home. See you soon neighbors.
