Get Ready For The “Big Dawg Blonde Ale” At Dog Fest On Sunday, Sept. 29 At IX Art Park!


I LOVED brewing the “Big Dawg Blonde Ale” alongside Dave Warwick, the head brewmaster at Three Notch’d Brewing Company, and Patricia Boden, the owner of Animal Connection – All Natural Store for Healthy Pets!

The “Big Dawg Blonde Ale” is the official beer of Dog Fest Charlottesville, the most fun outdoor party for dogs in Central Virginia. A portion of the proceeds from the “Big Dawg Blonde Ale” will be donated to animal rescue groups across Central Virginia!

Dog Fest will take place on Sunday, September 29 from 12 pm – 5 pm at IX Art Park. Dog Fest features a $500 costume contest for dogs, live music from The Pollocks, the Big Dawg Blonde Ale by Three Notch’d, 48 pet-friendly vendor booths, adoptable dogs, local celebrities, food trucks and “The World’s Largest Free Dog Treat Bar!”

I Love CVille is a proud sponsor of Dog Fest, which is now in its eighth year. I will be judging the costume contest along with WVIR NBC29 TV anchor Matt Talhelm, Dave Warwick and the fabulous Amy Wicks-Horn!

Guys, put Dog Fest on your calendar now!!
