We’re VERY excited to announce that we’re again hosting this incredible benefit The Wildcat Sanctuary in Minnesota. The Wildcat Sanctuary is a non-profit, no-kill facility providing safe, natural and humane sanctuary to wild cats in need & actively involved in ending the private ownership of exotic animals. Last year, with your generous help, we raised over $5000 — let’s try and double that this year!
Starting at 11am, we’ll be tapping rare beers from the best breweries in the world and we’ll again have amazing raffle prizes donated from some of the best artists & shops in the city!
