The Brewmaster’s Taproom is hosting a beer- and BBQ-fueled fundraiser for Yakima-area dog rescue on Sunday, May 13th. The event features beer from Varietal Beer Company, a new brewery in Sunnyside, Washington. Proceeds from the event benefit All Mutts Great and Small. You can get tickets in advance here.
Last year the event raised $1,700 for the cause. This year the goal is $2,500.
Varietal Beer Company is one of the area’s most highly anticipated new breweries. The partners in this venture are all veterans of the beer industry — a couple of skilled brewers along with some folks from the hop industry. Varietal is located in Sunnyside, Washington, right in the middle the most productive hop-growing region on earth.
Enjoy some great beer, some tasty barbecue and support a great cause.
Here’s the official release from Brewmaster’s Taproom about the event.

This year we’re partnering with Varietal Beer Co. from Sunnyside to raise funds for All Mutts Great & Small out of Yakima, the heart of the beer community! We always pay homage to the people and place that create the beer that we all love, and what better way to do that than to help take care of the community that raises the hops? All Mutts Great & Small strive to provide better lives for the dogs who have known little to nothing of human compassion. We’re very excited to also have some of their pups at the event for you to interact with! If you’re looking for a pup you can either apply ahead of time at http://www.allmuttsgreatandsmall.org/ adoption or fill out an application at the event!
Varietal Beer Company was founded in 2016 by a group of people passionate about beer, where the common goal is to produce beers that provide you with unique experiences and flavors using the best that the Yakima Valley has to offer in hops, barrels and fruit. The group is headed by brewers Chris Baum from Bale Breaker Brewery and Chad Roberts from Snipes Mountain Brewery. The team is rounded out by David Paulson and Karl Vanevenhoven of YCH Hops and John Cope. This brewery promises to be a powerhouse in the Washington brewing family.
The Brewmaster’s Taproom was founded in 2016 in Renton and strives to build a community not just around beer, but around our community. We hold monthly fundraisers and our honored to be partnering with Varietal to support All Mutts Great & Small this year.
Marley Rall, owner of Brewmaster’s, remembers the first time she met John Cope from Varietal, “I was setting up a Washington Brewer’s Guild Winter Fest and John came up to introduce himself and I immediately let my inner fan girl out. Luckily John was ok with that. Since then we’ve grown our relationship and are very excited to be able to bring some amazing beer to Renton!”
