Written by Bella – Fetching Lab CEO
Welcome to February, where you should be well on your way to breaking all those New Year resolutions. But as your loyal friend and Labrador in charge, I’d like to help you not be a statistic, and instead, be a success in the months to come.
“Commit to drinking more Fetching Lab beer in 2017 and you’ll succeed!”
Oberon and Buddy just told me that our lawyers forbid us from making such claims without a disclaimer; so here goes…
DISCLAIMER: “Results may vary.”
I don’t even know if it’s possible to sue a dog, even if I am the boss, but why take a chance. Regardless, I know how to get out of trouble. Just a couple weeks ago I destroyed one of the toys my humans bought me, and though Brett posted the video to show my shame, he couldn’t stay mad. Yeah, he has me eating treats out of his hand, But I’ve got him and Theresa wrapped around my paw. SCORE! Dogs: 1 – People: 0.
Regardless of the score, there is a reason that we dogs are “man’s best friend”. People and dogs go together, and as it turns out, beer and dogs go together as well. Now I’m not making any scientific claim here, because after all, I’m not a veterinarian, but have you ever noticed that people who like dogs are generally happier than people who don’t like dogs? And we’ve noticed that we have some of the nicest customers in the beer business, which means that people who drink good beer are generally happier as well. So in conclusion… make the resolution to be a happier person in 2017. Love dogs and enjoy good beer!
Part of a happy lifestyle is getting out to a brewery, where you’ll surround yourself with other happy people. Speaking of which, we’ve got a few things going on here in Alvin that you should check out.
Growler Adoption Program
Many 64oz companions have found homes, but many more are needed. We encourage you to consider giving a home to these wonderful containers, and remember to bring them back to the brewery where we will fill them up with your favorite beer for even more enjoyment. Growler Fills available at the brewery Tuesday through Friday from 4-7pm and this Saturday 1-5pm unless I say otherwise. Hey, a Lab has the right to change her mind and sometimes I need to go out and hang with the pack at other events. If I leave the brewery unsupervised, there is no telling what troubles the humans will get into. Have you seen the pic of Brett covered in beer? Just look at what I have to work with here!
So check my web page, Facebook or call to verify our hours.
50 Shades of Blue
Not to be confused with a popular novel, this is a limited release blend of our fan-favorite Blue Mischief Blueberry Ale, and most recent release, Bound and Determined Chile Stout. This Blueberry Stout has all of us panting with our tongues out just waiting to taste it. Look for 50 Shades of Blue in our tap room and in finer bars everywhere because this one of a kind batch will be going quickly.
We’re Turning 14 on the 14th
This month marks the Brewery’s 14th Anniversary. (That would be the 2nd Anniversary in human years). I’ve got Buddy and Oberon working on this project. The official celebration will be on Saturday, February 11th from 1PM to 5PM. Follow us on Facebook or keep checking our website to learn more. Not to mention that our good friends at Skallywag Suds N’ Grub will be throwing us a pre-celebration on Today (Feb 9th) starting at 6.
With all this excitement my tail couldn’t stop wagging even if I wanted it to. Come out to the brewery this Saturday. If you have your growler already adopted, bring it along. Bring your dog too (we see you leave and have no idea when you’re coming back). And tell a friend to meet you there for a beer!
