Rogue Ales did their annual Brewers Memorial Fest at Rogue Ales Saturday…which lasts through Sunday. Lots of beer tasting (of course) but also lots of dogs. Rogue does it in honor of their beer brewmaster’s dog, Brewer who passed away seven years ago. It’s a big get together in Brewer’s honor while raising funds for charities up and down the Central Coast. It’s even a chance to pay somebody to wash your dog for you!
In addition to raffle prizes, vendors, and lots of world class beer tasting, folks got to enjoy the Rogue Ales Doggy Olympics competition. It’s a run-through-the-cones-with-your-dog sort of thing…to see who can do it fastest. Winners get prizes, among which is….yeah…of course…the product of the house. The stuff what “ales” ya. One competition this afternoon was won by Winston, who lives in Portland with his master Rebecca. They did the short course in 9.5 seconds.(Last picture) Even through diving through the finish hoop together a dog and it’s master only managed to come in second. The one in the pink shirt.
They also conducted a doggie dress up party with prizes for the nicest costume. Tonight, more beer tasting, vendor shopping, doggie contests and live dance music. The Brewers Fest at Rogue Ale continues through 10pm tonight and they do it all over again Sunday, Noon to 4.
