Due to the overwhelming response, we are no longer accepting online orders and we will not be able to sell tickets at the door. We apologize for any inconvenience. Everyone who purchased tickets the week of Pints will have the purchasers’ names listed at Registration. You may bring your receipt/email verification to the event if you like, but it’s not necessary. Looking forward to hosting everyone on this fun-filled day!
Pints for Pups is the original dog and family friendly beer fest event and features delicious food, loads of beer for the tasting, and live music! But that’s not even the best part! ALL proceeds from this beer tasting event go directly to veterinary, sheltering, and adoption programs for animals in Berks and Lancaster Counties! Where else can you have more fun drinking a beer and save a dog (or cat)? Join us on Saturday, July 22, 2017 at Jim Dietrich Park in Muhlenberg for the ultimate Woodstock reincarnation event! Set back along the trails of the Schuylkill River, you’ll be immersed in the sylvan splendour of shaded trees, natural beaches and cool breezes that will surely ignite the flower power within your soul!
Last year was rolling with a rockabilly theme, and this year’s groovy 60s theme will not disappoint! Of course we will have 75+ brews to sample, plus some epic tunes, vendors and other super cool surprises — not to mention a buffet of outtasight picnic fare catered by Mayo’s Classic Catering!
You’ll want to dust off the bell bottoms and peasant blouses for our righteous musical lineup, featuring a far out performance by Kiss The Sky – The Jimi Hendrix RE-Experience, the #1 Hendrix act in the world! Kiss The Sky is more than a concert. It is a historically accurate sight & sound performance about all phases of the short yet iconic career of Jimi Hendrix. Just like Hendrix, lead singer Jimy Bleu is a virtuoso, left-handed guitarist and performs all of Hendrix’s signature stage moves. He re-creates the patented sounds and moves of Hendrix so well that he has also been a touring member of Jimi’s Hendrix bassist Billy Cox’s Band of Gypsy’s Experience band!
