Portland animal hospital DoveLewis is holding its annual Dogtoberfest celebration at Lucky Lab Brew Pub on SE Hawthorne Blvd. this Saturday, September 21st. The 25th annual celebration is billed as Portland’s largest dog wash and also includes all sorts of other dog pampering services rolled into an Oktoberfest party. This year, DoveLewis and New Seasons Market have collaborated with Lucky Lab on an official fresh hop beer in cans called “Fuzzy Muzzle.”
Dogtoberfest raises money for the DoveLewis blood bank and runs from 11 am to 5 pm on Saturday. The event is free to attend and dogs are obviously encouraged. Some of the dog services available at Dogtoberfest: dog wash, tiny and timid dog wash, nail trim and pet-friendly arts and crafts. There will also be live music, and, of course, beers.

About Fuzzy Muzzle: The “Fuzzy Muzzle” beer cloudy golden color with strong notes of peach, mango, and melon with subtle bitterness similar to a grapefruit rind to round out the flavor profile. Balanced flavor. A special co-LAB between Luck Lab Brewing, DoveLewis, and New Seasons. Sit. Stay. Drink. Lucky Lab Brewing is donating a portion of your Fuzzy Muzzle to DoveLewis Veterinary Emergency & Specialty Hospital because every fuzzy, furry, and feathered creature deserves some love. Boop.
