Saint Arnold Brewing Co., the oldest craft brewery in Texas, today announced the expansion of its Ale Wagger project, which donates a portion of proceeds from the sale of Saint Arnold Ale Wagger to support animal welfare programs. Saint Arnold selected five additional organizations to receive donations and to participate in Ale Wagger-related community outreach activities. The new Ale Wagger partners are:
• Beaumont, Texas: Humane Society – Southeast Texas
• Dallas, Texas: Operation Kindness
• Galveston, Texas: Galveston Island Humane Society
• Fort Worth, Texas: West Side Animal League
• Miami, Florida: Humane Society of Greater Miami
These five organizations join the City of Houston’s BARC and the San Antonio Humane Society in the Saint Arnold Ale Wagger project. Saint Arnold directs its donations to support spay/neutering and community education efforts.
“Animals are near and dear to the hearts of the Saint Arnold community, so we are very proud to expand the Ale Wagger project into additional markets,” said Saint Arnold Founder/Brewer Brock Wagner. “Since the Ale Wagger project was announced last year, Saint Arnold Ale Wagger has become the brewery’s fastest growing brand, which shows the enthusiastic support for combining two things people love – full flavored beer and helping animals.”
To extend upon the success of the Ale Wagger project, Saint Arnold has also introduced pet-related merchandise to its offerings. Dog lovers can now get dog treats made with spent grain, as well as a dog bandana, leash and collar, all featuring the Saint Arnold brand.
