Pints for Paws


The Berkeley Humane has partnered with a passionate team of animal lovers and beer enthusiasts to host a dog-friendly beer festival in West Berkeley. Pints for Paws will feature a selection of 80 beers from over 20 craft breweries, local ciders, and local wines. Local food will be available for purchase; there will be live music and a dog lounge. But, beyond being a good time for both you and your dog, Pints for Paws is one of the only beer festivals in the country from which 100% of dollars raised will be donated directly to charity.

Pints for Paws promises that 100% of every dollar raised at the event will be given directly to Berkeley Humane, which already has a clear mission for exactly how that money will save animals’ lives. On average, it costs about one thousand dollars to save a homeless animal. This money goes towards providing all of the physical, medical, and behavioral care needed—including spay/neuter surgery and loving foster care—so that they are ready to lead a long and healthy life in their adoptive homes. The Pints for Paws messaging is simple, honest, and transparent: Drink Beer. Save Animals. Pints for Paws hopes to raise at least $40k from ticket sales, sponsorships, and additional donations, which would save the lives of at least 40 East Bay dogs and cats.
