The second annual SGI Brewfest was a huge success on April 29, raising $28,000 for the Franklin County Humane Society.

The generosity and support of the Brewfest sponsors, and the army of volunteers who helped make the event happen, were appreciated by all involved. Over 600 people spent the day at Paddy’s Raw Bar and Journeys of St. George Island, where they sampled the offerings of 40 craft breweries from around the country. Dining on delicious fare provided by Paddy’s, and entertained by the island tunes of Dave Dale, these pet lovers and brew buffs contributed vital funds to the ongoing operation of the Humane Society.
