The brainchild of Ogden River Brewing Company head brewer, Pat Winslow, Pints for Pups is a pet adoption and fundraiser event that will take place at Ogden River Brewing Company on Saturday, July 10th from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
Ogden River Brewing Company and Ogden City Department of Animal Services have teamed up with the Weber County Animal Services to host Pints for Pups. Tickets are $25.00 and will be available before or on the day of the event. They include lunch and a portrait with your pet. All proceeds will go to the Ogden City Department of Animal Services and Weber County Animal Services. Additionally, the brewers created a special brew just for the event. Magnificent Golden Mutt is a Golden Ale that is smooth and easy to drink. One dollar per pint will be donated to the fund-raising effort until the beer has sold out.
As I mentioned, Pints for Pups is a fundraiser that Pat Winslow has been working to make a reality for years. According to the folks at Ogden River Brewing Company, “The project initially got off the ground with crowdsourced funds from a successful Kickstarter campaign which raised over $30,000. While undoubtedly a respectable sum of money, the funds raised were a far cry from what was required to bring this grand vision to fruition. Enter Bryan Wrigley of Lotus Company and since that time, Lotus Craft, the hospitality arm of Lotus Company and parent organization of Ogden River Brewing, has formed a family with some of Utah’s most experienced craft operators.”
“Over this shared vision for not only the community of Ogden and more than a few pints of homebrew, Pat and Bryan formed a fast friendship which grew into a business partnership. Wrigley expanded on their relationship, ‘Everyone who knows Pat, loves Pat. And it’s not just because of all the free beer. He exudes a genuineness and a passion for what he does that is as unique as it is infectious. Early on, I knew that I wanted to grow this dream with him.’ Pat expanded on that shared vision, saying, ‘I have always had a soft spot in my heart for animals, especially dogs. Together we can make a difference, drink a beer and help a dog. How cool is that?’”
