People who have, have had, or are kind to dogs get better gifts than anyone else. Wolfenoot is a night of Good People, Good Beer and Good Pups! A celebration of canines, kindness & humans who embrace both. No hate, only #snootboops. Bring your pup out for chance to win amazing prizes in our pet costume contest. (This event was rescheduled from Halloween due to weather). Or get ready for the holidays by dressing your pup in Christmas sweaters!
