In the midst of a pandemic that necessitates social distancing, the great summer pastime of drinking with friends has been put on hold. Luckily, one Southern California brewery has teamed up with a local dog rescue to deliver both beer and a potential new best friend along with it.

To celebrate National Dog Day—that's August 26—Los Angeles' Golden Road Brewing will deliver beer to customers' doors using perhaps the most lovable method possible: adoptable dogs. The stunt is a collaboration with Wags & Walks dog rescue, which is also celebrating 10 years of helping dogs find their forever homes.

For a $50 donation, 100 percent of which goes to the rescue, Golden Road will deliver two six-packs of its Hazy Pup IPA, a discount code for a future purchase from the brewery, and "more fun surprises," according to the brewery. Oh, and of course a dog that's available for adoption will also accompany the order to give you some "puppy playtime." The deliveries will take place on from Thursday, August 27 through Saturday, August 28 from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m.

Here are the neighborhoods available for deliveries on each day:

  • Thursday, August 27: Echo Park, Silverlake, Los Feliz, Elysian Park, Atwater Village, East Hollywood
  • Friday, August 28: Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Century City, West Hollywood, Pico-Robertson
  • Saturday, August 29: Studio City, North Hollywood, Van Nuys, Sherman Oaks, Encino, Tarzana, Burbank

If you don't snag a delivery, on Wednesday, August 26, Wags & Walks will also be hosting a "puppy party" at its Adoption Center in the Sawtelle neighborhood where you can also pick up some cans of the beer. (Golden Road's Hazy Pup IPA is also available year round and proceeds from the sale always go to Wags & Walks no matter when you buy it.) The rescue is also hosting a virtual auction to raise funds.

Dogs have been a particularly helpful no-contact delivery lifeline during the coronavirus pandemic. Earlier this summer we saw dogs shuttling wine between a shop and customers' cars, bringing groceries up to people's porches, and even a chihuahua that can complete a Cheetos run with the help of a note pinned to its collar.
