Hu­mane Penn­syl­va­nia will present “Sum­mer of Ska” in a se­ries of three Pints for Pups events span­ning Lan­caster, Berks, and Mont­gomery coun­ties this sum­mer.

Pints for Pups, which had its begin­nings ten years ago as a fundraiser for the Hu­mane So­ci­ety of Berks County, is a beer tast­ing and fes­ti­val where at­ten­dees are en­cour­aged to bring their leashed and well-be­haved dogs. Grow­ing in size and pop­u­lar­ity in the Read­ing com­mu­nity each year, Pints for Pups was brought to Lan­caster last year to ben­e­fit the Hu­mane League of Lan­caster County. This will be the first year Pints for Pups will take place in Pottstown.

As part of this year’s “Sum­mer of Ska” theme, Hu­mane Penn­syl­va­nia will host three ska bands, one of which will play live at each event. Pints for Pups Lan­caster will fea­ture The Pi­etasters, Pints for Pups Read­ing will fea­ture The Hemp­steadys, and Pints for Pups Pottstown will fea­ture The Snails.

In ad­di­tion to dozens of beers to sam­ple, Pints for Pups also fea­tures a pic­nic-style buf­fet, and a com­mem­o­ra­tive pint glass fea­tur­ing art by artist and pub­lished au­thor, Adri­enne Traf­ford.

“Pints for Pups is a very fun and highly-ef­fec­tive event sup- ported by a large crowd of com­mit­ted an­i­mal lovers who also love great beer,” said Karel Mi­nor, Hu­mane Penn­syl­va­nia Pres­i­dent and CEO, “Sim­ply by buy­ing a ticket and sam­pling beer, you can make a huge dif­fer­ence for a pet in need. All funds raised will be tar­geted to vet­eri­nary ser­vices and an­i­mal as­sis­tance pro­grams in each com­mu­nity.” “Sum­mer of Ska” Event De­tails:
