The 2013 Pints for Pets Brewfest to benefit the Central Pennsylvania Humane Society (CPHS) will be held on Saturday, May 18, 2013 at the PNG Field (formerly the Blair County Ballpark). Session 1 will be from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm and Session 2 from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm

Last year this fundraiser made $75,000 for the Shelter!  In its five year history it has made $300,000. This year we hope to make $80,000.

Over 3,000 people were in attendance last year making this Central PA’s biggest and most popular one day fundraiser.

Over 80 breweries from around the U.S. and around the world join together to sample their many excellent craft and import brews. Attendees get to try these, responsibly, of course.  Tickets will be $35 for Session 1 and $40 for Session 2 and will go on sale in late March. 

Rick Vanevenhoven, the Brewfest Committee Chairman says, “We are adding even more breweries this year and we’re working on a great line-up of bands for entertainment.  Our unique venue, the beautiful PNG Field, has it all.  The brewfest is held on the mezzanine level of the ballpark.  Since the mezzanine is covered, we can hold this event rain or shine.  Once again, we promise a great experience for a great cause.”

“Working at the CPHS Shelter, I see animals come in that are sick, injured and heartbroken. Through the kindness and generosity of the people who live here in Central Pennsylvania, these animals have another chance at the good life they deserve. Pints for Pets exemplifies that generous spirit through the hardworking members of the committee who, I promise you, will deliver a well-organized and fun-filled event for you in the community who always come out to help the animals. Pints for Pets at PNG Field is going to be THE place to be on May 18th,” noted Jill Reigh, Director of Outreach and Marketing at the CPHS Shelter.


The Central Pennsylvania Humane Society’s Mission is to prevent animal neglect and cruelty through education and enforcement while providing a safe haven and finding forever homes for those in need.
