****EVENT UPDATE ******
 
STRANGEWAYS BREWING is proud to once again support the animal rescue community with their annual Spring dog event. Join us at the brewery for a fur filled day of fun with Bow Wow Meow Luau on Sunday, April 9th 10:30am-5:30pm benefiting Richmond Animal Care and Control Foundation

Grab a grass skirt or some coconuts and grab your friends (with and without fur), and head on over to STRANGEWAYS to support RACC. 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 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.
