7th annual Pints n’ Paws Craft Beer Festival

Location: Downtown Sanford, FL

From: March 24, 2018 at 2:00pm to: 10:00pm


Craft beer and charity come together Saturday, March 24 in historic downtown Sanford with the 7th annual Pints n’ Paws Craft Beer Festival to benefit Dolly’s Foundation and Pet Rescue by Judy.

Hosted by  West End Trading Company and Celery City Craft, this pet-friendly event features 100-plus of the top craft brews, local food trucks and live entertainment.

Pints 'N Paws has quickly grown to become the premier craft beer festival in Central Florida, in part because all profits go to Dolly’s Foundation and Pet Rescue by Judy. In 2017, more than 10,000 attended Pints 'N Paws and raised $43,000. During the event’s 6-year history, Pints 'N Paws has raised $150,000 for the two pet charities.

Popular radio personalities "A Mediocre Time with Tom and Dan Podcasts" will emcee the event. 

Those attending the event are encouraged to bring their pets to participate in the  "Best Trick" and "Pet Costume" contests are sponsored by Paw Park Place. 

In addition, there will be a Dog Photo contest. Local photographer John Zawacki will snap a photo of all dogs that want to participate. Those photos will be posted on the Pints ‘N Paws Facebook page. The dog receiving the most likes during the month-long contest following Pins ‘N Paws will be featured on the 2019 Pints ‘N Paws posters, t-shirt and advertising materials.

The event begins at 2 p.m. (1 p.m. for VIP ticket holders). Advance tickets are $30 and includes free samples of all craft beer. VIP Tickets are available for $45 and include: early entry into the event, a commemorative 7th Annual Pints n’ Paws t-shirt and koozie,  discounted pint glasses and 20% off growlers at Celery City (day of the event day only).
