100% of proceeds will save lives 

While most charity-benefiting festivals only donate a small fraction of proceeds to nonprofits, Pints for Paws is one of the only beer festivals in the country where 100% of dollars raised will be donated directly to charity. Every dollar raised at the event will go directly to Berkeley Humane to save the lives of dogs and cats in the East BayThis event promises to bring together the beer and animal lover communities!
