You will be doggone happy in June, enjoying the delicious taste of local brews!

We love our craft beer on the Northshore. And who doesn’t love puppies? In June, you have the opportunity to enjoy some tasty brews while supporting a very worthy cause, the Northshore Humane Society.

Two for One

Every Sunday in June (and just about every Sunday throughout the year), you can spend a day out with your four-legged friend, snag a free beer and support the Humane Society. For every brew you purchase at Chafunkta Brewing Company, the second one is on the house. All you need to do is bring along your pup! Of course, you can come sans a pet and still support the non-profit. This great deal runs noon to 6 p.m., so you and your friends can have a round or two, knowing you are helping out a great cause.

The Prize Goes To…

The Ninth Annual Larry Hartzog Twisted Brew Fest and Homebrew Competition takes place on Saturday, June 25 at Pelican Park in Mandeville. Over 200 beer samplings from homebrew and commercial breweries around the state will be up for tasting. Area breweries participating include Abita, Port Orleans, Bayou Teche, Urban South and Great Raft. A friendly competition of the people’s favorite taste will make for some great fun, and yummy food and live music will complement the tastings. Also, Northshore Humane Society will have plenty of adoptable pups on-hand looking for loving homes. The fun begins at 4 p.m. For tickets, click here.

Too Cute

The Northshore Humane Society is the largest not-for-profit, no-kill animal shelter on the Northshore. Founded in 1953, NHS offers veterinary care, fostering, adoption and more to serve the homeless, neglected and abandoned animals of the community. For more information, click here.

No matter how you prefer your brew, you can enjoy it and help out our four-legged friends. That is surely something to bark about!
