Grab your friends (with and without fur), and head on over to STRANGEWAYS to support RACC, Foundation. There’s plenty of room to relax and chill with your dog in our beer garden while enjoying RVA’s largest selection of brewery beers and chowing down on some of Richmond’s yummiest food truck delights.
Let’s face it, teaming up with RACC was a natural fit. Dogs and cats are like beer. It’s hard to choose just ONE, and Strangeways features 36 beers on tap every day, while RACC saves 3000+ strays every year.
A howling good time is guaranteed for all and it’s our hope is you may even end up being the fur-ever home for a new best friend.
A suggested donation of $5+ will get you a sweet RACC koozie while supplies last. All donations go directly to Richmond Animal Care & Control Foundation.
Dogs must be on leashes at all times and will not be allowed in the brewery. Please, only bring well-behaved, non-aggressive dogs who are dog-friendly and comfortable with crowds and kids.
