FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Contact: Jeffrey Zerwekh
Berkeley Humane today announced its ninth annual craft beer festival which raises funds to save the lives of cats and dogs. Voted Best Fundraising Event in the East Bay for several years, Pints for Paws will take place on Saturday, June 3, 2023 from 2-5pm (1 hour earlier for VIPs ticket holders) at 2700 Ninth Street, Berkeley. 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. To learn more or to purchase tickets for Pints for Paws: https://berkeleyhumane.org/pints-for-paws.
Tickets include unlimited tastings from unique craft breweries, cider makers, and artisan winemakers all while enjoying live music and a friendly neighborhood vibe. The dog-friendly event is presented by Fieldwork Brewing, Subaru, and Wareham Development. 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. Funds raised will be dedicated to saving the lives of cats and dogs in the Bay Area and beyond by allowing the organization to provide medical care, training, nutritious meals, enrichment activities, and lots of love to animals in need.
VIP tickets allow entry one hour earlier for special beer tastings. VIP Reserved Tables will provide a dedicated seating spot for a group of up to eight people (and their well-behaved dogs!)
“There’s nothing more powerful than our community coming together to save lives,” said Barry Braden, event chair and co-founder of Fieldwork Brewing Company. “Fieldwork is proud to again be a presenting sponsor this year.”
Berkeley Humane transports over 1,000 animals annually from municipal shelters all around the Bay Area and Central Valley who first need medical or behavior care 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 loving homes.
“Pints for Paws attracts people from all over who come together to make miracles happen,” said Jeffrey Zerwekh, executive director of Berkeley Humane. “The people who attend this event provide us the financial resources so that we can save the lives of animals that are injured, abused, or sick and eventually place them with new loving families. It just does not get any better than that.”
This event sells out every year and prices 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 3, please visit: https://berkeleyhumane.org/pints-for-paws
