Dog Gone Good Beer

The L.A.G.E.R.S. HOMEBREW CLUB and Apocalypse Brew Works have collaborated once again to bring you the annual YAPPY HOUR. All types of beers brewed by all types of people to benefit all types of dogs (and even some cats).  You won’t find a wider variety of quality, malted beverages in town.  Sample the beers from the beer list below crafted just for this event by local home brewers.  Proceeds benefit the Kentucky Humane Society.  Event starts at 5:00 pm Friday, September 18. Quantities are limited. Warning: Consuming multiple beers will make every dog look like a purebred.
