‘Rescue Brew’ Pops Up For A 4th Year And Needs Your Pet Photos

Every year, Charlotte-area animal lovers and beer drinkers raise a glass, or can, to the cause of finding good homes for pets. And there's only one brew that will do. Rescue Brew is back for a fourth year and, once again, your dog or cat could be featured on the can. Rescue Brew is a tasty adult beverage as well as an annual fundraising partnership between the Humane Society of Charlotte and NoDa Brewing Company. A big piece of the effort is the photo competition. One dog and one cat will be named "Top Dog" and "Queen City Kitty" and both will become the faces of NoDa Brewing Company's limited edition beer release for 2024. How To Become Rescue Brew 'Top Dog' & 'Queen City Kitty' You can enter a photo of your dog or cat, along with a $20 fee/donation, now through June 24th. Then, you need to get your family and friends to vote for your pet ($1 per vote) until the contest ends on June 30th. If your dog or cat gets the most votes/raises the most money in its category, their photo will be turned into custom portraits by Charlotte artist Maddy Ebbert. Those portraits will then become the official Rescue Brew 2024 label. You can see last year's winners, Sophie and Nando, below. Rescue Brew Calendar & Launch Party The honors aren't limited to the two winners on the beer cans. The top six cats and top six dogs will be featured in the official 2025 Rescue Brew Calendar. All twelve winners will receive a professional photo session from local photographer, Reflections by Rhiannon Portrait Boutique. It's a lot of fun for a great cause so, even if you don't enter your pet in the contest, you should vote for the ones that are in it. Also, make plans to be at the Rescue Brew Launch Paw-ty at NoDa Brewing's North End Taproom (150 W. 32nd St, Charlotte, NC 28206) on Friday, August 9th. Rescue Brew will be on tap and 4-packs will be available for purchase. You can find all the details HERE. [embed][/embed]
