PUT THE BEER IN DOGTOBERFEST & BE A BAR-HOPPER
We're putting the beer in Dogtoberfest with in-person events participating local breweries! Visit the local animal-loving breweries below and Friends of Upland Animal Shelter will benefit from your participation and purchases.
We'll also have a special "Bar Hopper Passport Gift Basket" with merchandise from all four breweries for one lucky beer lover that attends 3 of the 4 brewery fundraisers. Just visit the Dogtoberfest table to get your passport, show your receipt for a beverage purchase, and get your passport stamped. When you have 3 stamps on your passport, return it to the Dogtoberfest table at either The Stout House or Dragon's Tale Brewery fundraisers and you'll be entered for a chance to win the Bar Hopper Passport Gift Basket.
