HAMPTON—St. George Brewing Company recently held its inaugural Beerlympics, which raised $2,000 to benefit Animal Aid Society, a no-kill dog shelter in Hampton. Fifteen teams from all over Hampton Roads competed in traditional field day events, including a three-legged race, giant beer pong, pool noodle javelin throws, and more in a fun-filled day of games and beer.
Early Birds Bottle Shop in Poquoson and Sinful Treat in Hampton were major sponsors of the event. Other sponsors included Island Team Sports, Specialty Beverage, Darnell Landscaping, Tap It, Prairie Malt, and Crunchy Hydration. Volunteers from CASK, a local home brewing club, provided support for the event.
“We’re grateful to St. George Brewing Company for the money they raised to help us continue our mission to save lives and bring hope for pets in need,” said Crystal Woody from the Animal Aid Society. “We look forward to watching this annual event grow and help us create more awareness about Animal Aid Society.”
