Families and Pets Invited to Wicks & Whiskers Fundraiser Saturday, November 18, at Wicks Brewing Co., Riverside

RIVERSIDE, CA, November 3, 2017 – It’s all about beer and beasts at Wicks & Whiskers, a fundraiser to benefit Riverside’s Foster Army Animal Rescue (FAAR) on Saturday, November 18, 2017, from noon to 4:00 p.m. The event, hosted by Wicks Brewing Co., 11620 Sterling Ave., Ste. C, Riverside, is family friendly. Leashed and sociable pets are welcome, too, but in the parking lot only unless they are service animals.

Wicks will donate $1.00 to FAAR from each sale of two of the brewery’s best-selling IPA beers.  Additionally, Wicks’s kitchen manager is making special dog biscuit treat bags with 100 percent of the sales going to FAAR. There will be hourly raffles, as well.

In addition to enjoying Wicks Brewing’s craft beers, ciders and food items, guests will be able to meet several pets rescued by FAAR that were once at risk of euthanasia at animal-control agencies and now are available for adoption.

Wicks Brewing Co., founded in 2013, is one of the largest brewpubs in the Inland Empire with 16 taps, a rotating guest tap and bottle list, a selection of ciders, and a craft food menu. For more information, visit

These animals include the ill and injured, kittens and puppies under eight weeks of age, seniors, and others often overlooked by adopters.  They are placed in foster homes and provided with all medical and behavioral treatments they need and are vaccinated, microchipped, and spayed/neutered before becoming available for adoption.
