Weekday Suds: Dogs, Suds, and Big Dreams!

Well it’s been a sporadic few weeks but it’s time to come back and share my latest beer adventure!  This time, we didn’t try anything new.  We helped a great brewery and a great organization raise money while drinking beer and petting puppies!  On Sunday, City Star Brewing put on the annual Hops & Harley event to raise money for National Mill Dog Rescue.  If you haven’t seen anything about Harley before, check out his story here.


From the City Star Press Release (read the full one here)

“Harley spent 10 years living in a small cage in a puppy mils, never knowing the touch of a kind hand … until he was rescued and found a loving home.  City Star Brewing, located in Berthoud, Colorado, learned the plight of the puppy mill dogs through Harley.  “Hops and Harley” then became a reality.”


We had a great time drinking some Honey Wheat for Harley, eating from a local food truck, and bidding on the silent auction.  This was a dog friendly event so there was plenty of puppies to play with.  We couldn’t have asked for a better weekend weather wise!  It is so nice to see a community rally together for a great cause and be able to bring the whole family, even the furry ones.

And if you have the inclination, you can still help dogs like Harley find a forever home by donating here!
