Sanford Craft Beer Fest Offers Plenty of Bark for the Buck

Annual Pints n’ Paws Craft Beer Festival  has raised $150,000 for pet charities

SANFORD – Craft beer and charity come together Saturday, March 24 in historic downtown Sanford with the 7th annual Pints n’ Paws Craft Beer Festival to benefit Dolly’s Foundation and Pet Rescue by Judy.

Hosted by  West End Trading Company and Celery City Craft, this pet-friendly event features 100-plus of the top craft brews, local food trucks and live entertainment.

Pints ‘N Paws has quickly grown to become the premier craft beer festival in Central Florida, in part because all profits go to Dolly’s Foundation and Pet Rescue by Judy. In 2017, more than 10,000 attended Pints ‘N Paws and raised $43,000. During the event’s 6-year history, Pints ‘N Paws has raised $150,000 for the two pet charities.

 “I love to throw a good party, and I love animals, so I guess you could say I’m a party animal” said Paul Williams, owner of West End Trading Company. “Seriously though, these two great organizations mean a lot to me, and I’m honored to help them further their good works.”

“Craft beer lovers will have a huge selection of fine brews to sample. It’s very paws-able you’ll find a beer you’ve never tried before,” said Celery City Craft owner Shane Hardenbrook with a grin.

Pints ‘N Paws is set in historic downtown Sanford, the Craft Beer and Entertainment Center of Seminole County, and local officials are enthusiastic supporters of the event.


“There may be bigger beer festivals, but there is not a better one,” said Sanford Mayor Jeff Triplett. “(Event organizers) Paul  and Shane do a great job in bringing the best breweries, and 100% of the profits go to pet charities. Their hard work and generosity is just another reason why Sanford is the preeminent craft beer destination in Central Florida.”

Popular radio personalities “A Mediocre Time with Tom and Dan Podcasts” will emcee the event.

Those attending the event are encouraged to bring their pets to participate in the  “Best Trick” and “Pet Costume” contests are sponsored by Paw Park Place.

In addition, there will be a Dog Photo contest. Local photographer John Zawacki will snap a photo of all dogs that want to participate. Those photos will be posted on the Pints ‘N Paws Facebook page. The dog receiving the most likes during the month-long contest following Pins ‘N Paws will be featured on the 2019 Pints ‘N Paws posters, t-shirt and advertising materials.

The event begins at 2 p.m. (1 p.m. for VIP ticket holders). Advance tickets are $30 and includes free samples of all craft beer. VIP Tickets are available for $45 and include: early entry into the event, a commemorative 7th Annual Pints n’ Paws t-shirt and koozie,  discounted pint glasses and 20% off growlers at Celery City (day of the event day only). Tickets at the gate are $40 for General Admission and $55 for VIP (if available).

Advance tickets are available at West End Trading, Celery City Craft.  Will-call tickets can be purchased online at pintsandpaws.com and picked up day of the event.
