At FBC, you don’t have to stay long before you realize that we love our four-legged friends! When choosing our most recent “Cheers to Charity!” recipient, Fernie Pets was a choice close to both home and the heart of many an FBC staff member. One of things we love most about living in Fernie is the active lifestyle - everyone loves getting outside and dogs are nothing less than part of the family.
Fernie Pets has been working since 2011 to create a fully-fenced off-leash Dog Park. An environment where dogs can play with owners and other dogs untethered. A much-needed addition to our fantastic community. As such, we were excited to welcome many a thirsty visitor with four-legged friends in tow, to our Tasting Room over the past 6 weeks.
All proceeds from sample paddles sold in the Tasting Room from March 1, 2017 to April 16, 2017 went straight to Fernie Pets and the development of the Fernie Dog Park. From garbage collection to fencing, there is no shortage of work to be done, but the residents of Fernie eagerly await the project’s completion.
Thanks to our thirsty customers, Fernie Pets is now $6,119.40 closer to making this dream a reality! Our biggest cheque to date, we give a huge thanks to everyone who visited us. Of course, before you get all excited and head straight out for another paddle, we are now closed for renos, with an expected opening date of late June.
Until then, stay up to date on all things FBC and track our progress, via our website and Social Media. In the meantime, be sure to get your FBC fix at local Liquor Stores, enjoy a pint at the many top spots in town, purchase FBC swag at Giv’Er Shirtworks, or head to our online store to benefit from FREE SHIPPING within Canada, throughout our reno.
Cheers to Charity!
