Fido’s – The World’s First Dog Tap House, is having it’s Grand Celebration on Tuesday, February 13, 2018 @ 11am. Fido’s brings to the beer scene a new concept never seen before. Fido’s blends foster housing for shelter dogs with a craft beer tap room. Patrons will be able to drink craft beer and play with shelter dogs, with the goal of re-homing these dogs to loving owners.
“We are excited to host John Cook, Mayor of Tigard,” comments owner Scott Porter. “Oregon Friends Of Shelter Animals, Harmony Dog Training, Dog artist Kellee Beaudry and Mrs. Washington County are all confirmed for the celebration.”
In addition to beer, shelter dogs and fun dog-themed community events, Fido’s will donate a portion of profits to local rescue charities to help them tackle the national shelter dog challenge. According to the SPCA, about 670,000 dogs are euthanized annually due to overpopulation. That’s over 12,000 per week. Area nonprofits spend so much of their time fundraising, which takes away their capacity to re-home shelter dogs. This prompted Porter to promote and support charities that are tackling the homelessness issue for our furry friends, within his business model. It is Fido’s goal to become the premier corporate donor in the United States.
Fido’s is excited for its February 13th grand opening. They are ramping up by scheduling dog-related events, getting their large outdoor patio prepped and ready for the dogs and customers, and of course, bringing in craft beer from the Pacific Northwest and beyond. Fido’s is a family friendly establishment. Kids are welcome, and puppy pals are encouraged on the patio. The patio will also be used for dog demonstrations, art shows, book signings, and more.
Fido’s uses DigitalPour to track and display their current tap list featuring 40 taps. Check it out here
Additional events are also being planned for opening week and well out into the future. Any dog related events such as seminars, dog-themed artists, DIY dog bone makers and other dog enthusiasts are encouraged to reach out to explore promotional opportunities.
