Two Blokes will also be fundraising for South Carolina-based Phoenix Rising Border Collie Rescue (PRBCR). Tassie, our brewery dog, and Digger, her mate, were both rescued by PRBCR and would not be in our lives if not for the kindness and generosity of their fostering family and volunteers. So please come out to show your support for this wonderful organization! $1 from every pint sold during this event will be donated to PRBCR. Ciaburri’s food truck will be serving from 1 – 6pm.

The Adventures of Duke, the Therapy Dog: Duke Finds A Home tells the true story about an adorable (we’re biased!) rescue dog named Duke. Duke hits the puppy jackpot when he’s adopted by a loving family. This picture book for children is an endearing tale about new beginnings with a happy ending. This children’s book is the first in a series sharing all about Duke’s happy life, silly capers, and true calling — becoming a therapy dog.
 
Founders Allison and John Paul created Lola & Pear Publishing in 2018, and they donate 20% of profits to charities. This tour benefits The Atlanta Boxer Rescue, to whom Allison is forever grateful for rescuing Duke. Lola & Pear Publishing is based in Capitol Hill in Washington, DC.
