Dogs and beers. What more could you ask for during Oktoberfest?
The Young Professionals group of the Animal Rescue League of Boston invites you to join us for our first annual:

Benefitting Shelter Dogs at the Animal Rescue League of Boston.

Come with your four-legged canine friends to throw back a few beers with your best bud while taking in the tunes of Boston’s very own Keytar Bear sponsored by A Walk in the Park. Beers brought to you by Harpoon Brewery, Newburyport Brewing Co., and others to be announced.

You can enter the Oktoberfest-themed doggie costume contest for the chance to win some pawsome prizes for your pup. Show off your skills at the Barktoberfest Cornhole Tournament and enter to win a pair of Boston Bruins tickets, a 6-month BarkBox subscription, and a spa gift. Buy in at the event for your chance to win! All entry fees will be donated back to the Animal Rescue League.
