New 3-Day Bourbon, Beer, and Wine Fest Benefits Pet Charities

A new three-day beer, bourbon, and wine festival will be donating 100 percent of its proceeds to local pet charities, rescues, and shelters.

Pours Four Paws runs August 11-13 in Ft. Thomas at the Highlander Event Center, and is presented by Whisper Pet, a new product developed in Covington that neutralizes pet odors.

There will be four sessions of beer, bourbon, and wine tasting across three days featuring everything from hazy and dank IPAs, bourbon, crisp ales, fruity and smooth ciders, to red and white wines.

“Lucky Tales Rescue is very excited for the Pours Four Paws event. We look forward to celebrating with our many great friends and sharing the vision of our rescue. So happy this is a pet-friendly event,” said Kristen Schmidlin of Lucky Tales Rescue.

One hundred percent of the profits will go back to the following participating pet non-profits:

● Adore-A-Bull
● Lucky Tales Rescue
● Myles Ahead Rescue
● National Canine Cancer Foundation - Cincinnati Chapter
● Pets for Patients
● SPCA Cincinnati & YPCA Cincinnati
● United Pet Fund

Online tickets are $40 and tickets at the door are $45. Ticket price includes 15 drink tickets, one bottle of Whisper Pet Odor Elimination Spray (retail value of $18.99), and entry into the event.
