This initiative is inspired by our very own brewery mascots Bella and Baxter, brewery owners Rob & Karla Engman’s beloved 16 year-old schnoodles. “I have always been an animal lover and advocate. I was so excited when I found out how many members of our team were as well. Each charity or program we are raising money for has a personal meaning to one of our Sawdusters. I encourage everyone to come out in support of our four legged friends,” says Karla. The whole Sawdust City team is thrilled for this opportunity to give back to animals in need in our local communities that we feel privileged to call home.
