The annual Save-a-Bull Summer Brewery Tour is a summer-long event series to raise money to support rescue. We’ve partnered with some of the best breweries in town to bring you beer, friends, dogs and fun – all for a good cause! A portion of sales from each event is donated to rescue, and there are ample opportunities to win swag and prizes at each event.

We couldn’t possibly have more fun connecting with supporters, dog lovers and pit bull advocates;  making new friends; and spending time at these generous business in our community. Make plans to join us this summer!

2017 BREWERY TOUR RECAP

Sunday, September 17

Our finale event at NorthGate Brewing was exactly what you’d expect: lots of beer, friends, dogs, prizes and sunshine to wrap up our Summer Brewery Tour. Our biggest thanks to everyone who came to support us at one, or more, events over the summer. With your support, and the generosity of our brewery partners, we raised more than $14,000 that will help us give dogs in need a second chance. THANK YOU for making that possible, we can’t wait to do it all again next year!

Even though we were dog-free at this stop on our brewery tour, we still had an amazing time! It was fun to be on the St. Paul side of town and make a ton of new friends. We hope you’ll follow us back over the river for another fun day on a brewery patio. Thanks for coming!

Thank you to Boom Island Brewing for having us back for a second time this summer. We got chased inside by the rain for a few minutes but got to spend a great afternoon outside with many of our favorite people! It was extra fun to see several former SAB puppies who are all grown up and happy in their forever homes!

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


SUNDAY, OCTOBER 2

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!


SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 25

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!


SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 4

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!


SUMMIT

SATURDAY, AUGUST 20

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!


MONDAY, AUGUST 8

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!

See you at LynLake!

Thanks for coming and for sharing – see you next time!


Excelsior

MONDAY, JUNE 6

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.
