Help Brewery, Help More Furry Friends!

Personal message

My name is Paul Freysen and I am the founder, owner, janitor, driver of a small award winning Nano Brewery in Durbanville, Cape Town called The Kennel Brewery. After the recent success we had with ADOPT A DOG ALE, where we added 6 rescued dogs on our beer label to find them homes, a huge group of charities asked us if we would be willing to help their breeds as well. Unfortunately, our Brewery capacity is not of such size, but if you can help us buy more fermenters, we can help out more charities.

 

It all started more than year ago when we had to give one of our dogs up for adoption after they grew up with each other, but at age four, both wanted to be the alfa male..

We decided to give up Riplee as he was the youngest and thought a younger dog would get a new home quicker than and older one.

Robyn at Pitpals was so nice to take Riplee in.. And from there we built a relationship with Pitpals. We started hosting Pawfect Summer/Winter Beer Festival where proceeds of the raffle tickets went to Pitpals and other charities..

Fast-forward to a month ago, Riplee still didn't find a home and then I decided to ask Robyn to send me 6 dogs that has been waiting the longest for their forever home, Riplee included.. We then brewed a beer with the label being the 6 different dogs with their names on and the contact details to adopt one of them..

After our organic post the Friday, our post ended up with 170 shares and reached almost 23 000 people.. From there, people and charities been in contact with us asking if we can do the same for them or help out in other ways.

If we could, we would help every charity in a way possible. Unfortunately, our brewery fermenter capacity is not in such way. This the reason for this campaign.

With more capacity, we can brew more and get more beers out there! We aiming to buy 1 fermenter that will help the process much quicker.. If we had the cash flow we would have bought it long time ago, but small Breweries these days try to keep head above water.

We decided not to add any awards as that would up the price for our goal even higher which we find is unnecessary in our opinion..

Let's see if we can make this happen.. Thanks in advance from the bottom of our hearts.
