I just found out about this really cool thing that the Capital Ale House is doing. Every Thursday is what they call Community Chest. They pick a couple non-profit organizations and 25% of food purchases go to the non-profit you choose. The month of June 2010 they have chosen the 501 (c) 3 non-profit, Ring Dog Rescue!

Ring Dog Rescue is a rescue group dedicated to the “Bully Breeds”. We are a 501 (c)3 nonprofit organization and are currently listing adoptable “bullies” from, not only Ring Dog Rescue, but our other rescue friends and those who have opened their door to an orphaned “bully” in private rescue.

We at Ring Dog Rescue all own a “bully” and would like to answer all your questions and help guide you to a happy life for you and your companion, as well as to aid you in finding the perfect one for you.

If there is anything you can’t find on the site please contact us with questions at ringdog@ringdogrescue.org. Our mailing address is PO Box 28632, Henrico, VA 23228 and to leave a message in our voicemail, call 804 622-4200. The number to fax an adoption or foster application is 804 590-2650.

My friend Riley is a "Bully Breed"

I’m hoping mom will call to see if I can go with her some Thursday night for dinner this June and sit on the patio with her so I can help support Ring Dog Rescue!

Oh hey another cool thing about Capital Ale House…. They are a Gold Sponsor for World Beer Festival Richmond VA 12 June 2010!!!!!

xyz41008 031Sad news for Richmond Virginia  beer lovers! All About Beer Magazine sent out a press release today confirming that the 29 August 2009 World Beerfest Richmond has been postponed until spring of 2010 (date to be released)

All About Beer Magazine announced today that the World Beer Festival scheduled for August 29 in Richmond will be held instead in the spring of 2010.

The World Beer Festivals have been held annually in Durham, NC for 14 years; Raleigh, NC for five years; and Columbia, SC for one year. Richmond, with its thriving beer community, will be the fourth city to host the event, which brings together several thousand beer lovers for an opportunity to sample a wide range of beers in a safe and enjoyable setting.

“We are committed to putting on a world-class event,” said Daniel Bradford, producer of the festival and publisher of All About Beer Magazine. “Some of the preparations are taking longer than expected, and we need more time to ensure that the World Beer Festival Richmond meets its potential. The Richmond beer community is knowledgeable and enthusiastic, and the World Beer Festival has a unique role to play in enhancing that community.”

“The World Beer Festivals are complex events that reflect our mission of educating and entertaining beer drinkers about the beauty and diversity of beer,” said Bradford. “The unique quality of the festivals spring from a commitment to detail, so that everyone attending—the consumers, the brewers, and the volunteers—leaves the festival enriched.”

The date of the spring event will be announced as soon as possible. The World Beer Festival staff will work closely with partners in Richmond to transition to the new date and make certain all the parties have ample time to plan.


Mom is in a bit of a depressed mood about this news. Apparently we were going to have a bit of a party going on here in Richmond that weekend and were going to see old friends, new friends and family….and my friends from NC were going to come up…the Fourleggeds! Something to look forward to next spring!

pictures 032All About Beer Magazine has announced it’s new host city for the World Beer Festival!!!! Save the date Richmond, Virginia and come to Browns Island for World Beer Festival Richmond on 29 August 2009! 

Mom is super excited about the whole event. I am excited because I get to see a bunch of my friends including: The Fourleggeds, Erika (maybe I can explain to her this time what a ball should really be used for!), The great folks from What you see is what you get and maybe some other friends!

Doubtful I’ll be allowed again to go to the actual event but mom said I’ll be involved somehow! I think I saw her designing a group t-shirt, I might need to help her with that! Because you know that Leinenkugel Brewery should be there in some capacity!
