“I participate in a lot of festivals, but Pints for Paws has a unique vibe, and there is nothing as powerful as a community coming together to save the lives of animals,” said Kevin Hamilton, event chair and owner of Canyon Club Brewery. “This event sells out every year, so buy your tickets early and plan to attend with your dog and your friends.”  

Admission includes a commemorative Belgian-style glass, unlimited tastings from over 30 unique craft breweries, artesian ciders, boutique wineries, Tito’s vodka, and other beverages while enjoying live music and a friendly neighborhood vibe.   

Fieldwork Brewing, Subaru, and Wareham Development present the dog-friendly event. Unlike beer festivals that donate only a fraction of proceeds to charities, 100% of the funds raised by Pints for Paws support Berkeley Humane’s programs and community services.   

“Pints for Paws attracts an amazing group of beer lovers and dog owners who come together for a great cause,” said Jeffrey Zerwekh, executive director of Berkeley Humane. “This event provides us with the financial resources to save the lives of injured, abused, or animals in need of urgent medical care.”  

This event sells out, and prices will increase the last week, so please purchase your tickets now. To learn more or to purchase tickets for Pints for Paws in Berkeley, CA, on June 1st, please visit:
