Admission is free, and beer samples will be purchased with tickets (bring cash for the tickets). It's co-sponsored by local bigfoot brewpub The Bulldog, and among the local micros on tap will be Abita, Heiner Brau, Lazy Magnolia, NOLA Brewing, Bayou Teche Biere and Tin Roof Brewing. (A complete list is here.) The event runs from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m., with performances by Rotary Downs (2:30-4:30 p.m.) and Flow Tribe (5-7 p.m.). There will also be a cool-off tent (for dogs and owners), doggie games, a raffle, food, non-alcoholic beverages and adoptable pets from the LA-SPCA.
You're also welcome to bring your own well-behaved dog as long as it's on a leash ... or come out empty-leashed and take home a new dog or cat.
