Holmberg Bound Fundraiser for AHS Dogs

KUPD and Holmberg Bound Fundraiser for AHS Dogs

Written by: Arizona Humane Society
‘Tis the season… for giving back to homeless dogs by enjoying the best brew in town, Holmberg Bound!

Did you know the host of Holmberg’s Morning Sickness on 98KUPD, John Holmberg, is a huge dog enthusiast and is an amazing friend to the Arizona Humane Society? It’s true! In fact, he has a whole crew of pups and there’s only one thing John loves as much as his dogs: craft beer! So, John got together with Four Peaks Brewing Co. and the result? A delicious red IPA called Holmberg Bound brewed especially to benefit our dogs at the Arizona Humane Society.

To craft this unique beer, Four Peaks and John Holmberg met to create it from scratch for this special event and caught the whole thing on film. Now, they’re ready to share the hops of their labor with the community.

Join AHS at Four Peaks Brewing Co.’s 8th Street location in Tempe for the re-release of Holmberg Bound on Wednesday, December 7th. Not only can you get a tasty adult beverage, but we will be onsite with some of our adorable, adoptable pets, and reps from 98KUPD will be there with plenty of radio goodies.

But wait. There’s more! Additionally, KUPD is sponsoring a No Stray Left Behind food drive.

Don’t miss out on your chance with one of two ways to donate to homeless pets this December. And remember this delicious “red IPA – about 7.5% ABV with a huge hop flavor and aroma, subtle toasty malt flavor and dry finish,” is available for a limited time only this holiday season!

Drink beer and save lives.
