JAMES CITY-Billsburg Brewery is going to the dogs.

The brewery is partnering with The Nautical Dog to host an ice cream social for dogs on June 16 in part to raise awareness and support for Heritage Humane Society.

“Everyone can bring the four-legged members of the family out and meet new friends,” said Eric Williams, general manager for Billsburg Brewery.

“As a proud parent of a chow-chow and golden retriever, I am looking forward to bringing together people who love animals and have a desire to pamper their fur babies while helping raise money for the Heritage Humane Society to help take care of all animals.  We are also looking forward to seeing our community reconnect as we come out of covid and provide a safe space for everyone to reconnect and make new friends.”

The Nautical Dog will provide the ice cream for the free event. Billsburg Brewery’s ice cream social for dogs will be held on Wednesday, June 16, from 4pm to 8pm.

The event is a prelude to a larger fundraiser for Heritage Humane Society that Billsburg Brewery will be hosting later in the month. On Saturday, June 26, the brewery is planning an all-day event featuring music, multiple food trucks, and animals from Heritage Humane Society. A percentage of all sales from that event will go to the animal shelter.

The New Local News Model

On July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper. We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in credit when you sign up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for at least 20 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at
