About

Beer For Beasts

We all know beer is a beverage enjoyed by humankind going back to the dawn of civilization. But could beer also serve as the main engine to power the cause and social mission to help shelter animals? Beer Advocate and Sixpoint thought with a little creativity, thoughtfulness, and thinking outside the box, it definitely could be done!

Beer For Beasts

Beer For Beasts was born from this idea and intention. Beer Advocate and Sixpoint thought there could be a way to transform the typical elements of a beer festival, and also redirect the intention to help a worthy cause. Since helping animals was already a focal point and personal mission of the founders of Beer Advocate and Sixpoint, the cause was easy to identify. And instead of serving a regular lineup of beers with typical food options, Beer Advocate and Sixpoint decided to brew completely unique, one-time offerings solely for this event. With local talent pitching in to provide the music, and a collection of New York City's great food truck offerings, Beer For Beasts was born.

So yes, beer is more than just a beverage enjoyed by humankind - it helps Beasts too. Every year, dozens of unique beers are enjoyed by people at Beer For Beasts, and all of the proceeds go to the Humane Society of New York. Come join us at Beer For Beasts: A celebration of beer, food and people, for a good cause.
