By now, many of you who follow the blog regularly are probably familiar with the story of Lucy, the Washington Beer Dog. She’s found her way into a few stories over the past couple years. Short version, on a lonely stretch of highway, on a reservation in the middle of nowhere Montana, miles from the nearest house or town, Lucy flagged us down during a thunderstorm and rescued us from a life of sad, lonely doglessness. That’s one of the reasons why the Washington Beer Blog has a soft spot in our heart for rescue dogs. And so do the Brewmaster’s Taproom, Cloudburst Brewing and Georgetown Brewing.
Announcing the upcoming release of I LOVE DOG IPA, a collaborative beer brewed by Steve Luke of Cloudburst Brewing, Matt Edwards of Georgetown Brewing, and Marley Rall of Brewmaster’s Taproom. Proceeds from the beer will benefit the Sato Project and Yakima Valley Pet Rescue, two organizations that help connect people with dogs. A party at The Brewmaster’s Taproom on Saturday, September 1st celebrates the beer’s release.
Here’s the announcement.
Brewmaster’s Taproom is Teaming Up with Cloudburst & Georgetown for I LOVE DOG! IPA
Renton, WA – The Brewmaster’s Taproom is a staple of the community of Renton and works to make this world a better place one pint at a time. In that tradition Marley Rall of Brewmaster’s has teamed up with Steve Luke of Cloudburst Brewing and Matt Edwards of Georgetown Brewing to create a juicy IPA – I LOVE DOG! – with proceeds going to The Sato Project and Yakima Valley Rescue. The release party is scheduled for Saturday, September 1st kicking off at 12:00pm at The Brewmaster’s Taproom. They’ll have I LOVE DOG! IPA on tap, in crowlers, stickers and shirts with all proceeds going to the two charities.
Steve, Matt and Marley all have dogs hailing from the Yakima region and decided they wanted to do something for the dogs that aren’t as lucky as theirs. They decided the best way to do that would be to brew a beer in honor of their eastern Washington pups – Sus, Gerry and Barley – with the proceeds going to some of their favorite dog charities: The Sato Project out of Puerto Rico and Yakima Valley Pet Rescue out of Yakima.
The Sato Project is dedicated to rescuing abused and abandoned dogs from Puerto Rico. Sato is a term for street dogs in Puerto Rico that are instantly recognizable and describe the dogs that live the hardest of lives. You can support them as they recuse and rehab these street dogs at www.thesatoproject.org
Yakima Valley Pet Rescue is dedicated to the rescue, care and adoption of unwanted, neglected or death row dogs and cats from eastern Washington. You can support them with the rescue process at www.YVPR.org
