‘12 Dogs of Christmas’ first tap at Thirsty Dog with FCCAS & rescue pups

santadog‘Tis the season, Cleveland!

And the Friends of the Cuyahoga County Animal Shelter is helping Thirsty Dog East Banks celebrate the release of a seasonal favorite, the ’12 Dogs of Christmas’ ale.

For this year’s first pour, Santa will have some special helpers: adoptable dogs from the Cuyahoga County Animal Shelter.

The big tapping party is Oct. 12.

Admission is free, and the event is kid-friendly and pet-friendly. There will be photos with Santa and his rescue dogs on the patio, along with a kissing booth where revelers can share a smooch with our pups. They’ll be dressed in their holiday best, of course.

There will be a Yappy Hour, where a portion of each pint sold will go to FCCAS and Santa’s dogs, along with a DJ playing Christmas music. It’s Christmas in October, plus adorable dogs!
