Hello, Summer!

This summer, join us on patios and taprooms at some of our favorite local breweries as we socialize, share a beer and raise money for rescue.

A portion of each beer purchased at these events will be donated to rescue. Special Summer Brewery Tour t-shirts and sunglasses are available for purchase and you’ll have the chance to win great raffle prizes at each event – all of which helps us help more dogs! Most breweries will also have food trucks at each event, so bring your friends, your dogs, and make a night of it!

Commemorative Summer Brewery Tour GROWLERS will be available for sale at each event! *Note: This is  a collectible growler. Not all breweries will fill a growler that is not their own.

Join us at 6 out of 8 events, get your tour pass stamped, and earn a a professional paddle-style, powder coated Save-a-Bull bottle opener!

What a great turnout at LynLake on a Tuesday night! It was the perfect summer night in the open taproom and on the roof top patio. Check out some of the fun we had and thanks again for coming!



Save-a-Bull and our volunteers can’t thank you enough for joining us on the inaugural 2016 Summer Brewery. Because of your support, and the breweries that hosted us, we were able to raise more than $12,000 to help dogs in need!

Take a look at some of the fun we had, then join us on the 2017 Summer Brewery tour!


NorthGate Brewing and the Fetch warehouse were overflowing with dogs and friends at our last brewery tour event. The silent auction had lots of great items up for bids and we were able to raise even more money for rescue. While we’re sad the tour is over, we couldn’t have had more fun at our finale event of the summer. Thanks for joining us!



What a wonderful afternoon we had at Boom Island Brewing! The fall weather was crisp and cool and we enjoyed the warm company of fellow dog lovers and rescue supporters. We gave away some great new prizes, including a huge dog bed, and had some amazing Cajun food. See you at our last event on October 2nd!


Thank you Burning Brothers Brewing for allowing to pack your small space! There was no lack of great beer, CUTE puppies and good times at the gluten-free brewery. We met a lot of new faces at this stop and we hope to see you again next time, thanks for your support!




The weather didn’t dampen our spirits and we want to send out a huge thank you to everyone who came out in the rain to support rescue at our Summit tour stop! This was by far the busiest event of the tour so far and we had a great time visiting with old and new friends – we hope to see you all again at the next event!


What a great place for a dog-filled evening, thank you Lynlake for opening your doors just for us! It was a great place to stay cool, from the open air tap room to the glorious roof top deck, dogs and people had a great time and lingered way past the end of the event!



It was one of the hottest days of the summer so far, but we were as cool as can be inside Sisyphus Brewing. Those that signed up for our email list had a chance to win special prizes (sign up for your next opportunity!) and we were lucky to have several Save-a-Bull alumni stop by for the first time. See you at LynLake!


It was a beautiful night to be outside at 612 Brew. We had a small but regular crowd of dog lovers who have been following the tour all summer. We gave away some awesome prizes and have more lined up for our next stop. Make sure to join us!



It was a beautiful, hot summer day to be out on the patio with our dogs! We had the added fun of bocce ball and bag toss as well as the first photo booth at an event (watch for those photos to come). In the mean time, enjoy some Instagram love from the event. Thanks for coming and for sharing – see you next time!



We had a small but really fun turnout at Excelsior Brewing on our last tour date. We gave away a ton of great raffle prizes and drank some amazing beers. The night was beautiful and many of us went on a stroll down to the lake to end the evening – perfect. Thanks for coming, see you next time!

NorthGateBrewing WEDNESDAY, MAY 25

Thank you for coming to our first Summer Brewery Tour event! It was a hot night of raffle prizes, great food from Pharaoh‘s Gyros, and plenty of socializing for people and dogs alike. The cold beer kept the party going – thank you NorthGate for having us, we look forward to coming back again for our brewery tour finale event in October.

Summer 2015 We’ve enjoyed many afternoons on a deck or patio at some great local breweries. We’re looking forward to another summer of friends, fun, dogs and community.
