Six Finalists in Rescue Brew Contest!


After 72,342 votes were counted — we now have three cats and three dogs who came out on top of our Rescue Brew Contest!

We are super excited to announce the top three finalist dogs Pete, Beau and Laney and the top three finalist cats Mr. T, Sirri, and Louie  in the 2020 Rescue Brew Contest! Thanks for entering your pets and thank you for your generous votes!  Only one dog and one cat can be the winning Spokesdog and Spokescat.  Our judging panel is now hard at work to determine the Grand Prize Winning Dog and Grand Prize Winning Cat.  The winners will be announced and the labels revealed on November 21st during our Facebook Live broadcast of the 20th Annual Celebrity Chili Cook-Off which will be held at Charleston Animal Society.  Mark your calendars and stay tuned!  We will stay in touch about all of the details and we hope to see each of you there.  To stay up to date on the 20th Annual Celebrity Chili Cook-Off visit www.Chili.charlestonAnimalSociety.org for all of the details.

The winning dog and cat will each appear on the labels for the special fall release of the Palmetto Brewing Company 2020 Rescue Brew Beer.  “Rescue Brew brings back a Palmetto favorite for the 2020 holiday season – Peace of Cookie,” said Collin Clark, Director of Brand Development for Palmetto Brewing.  “All of us here at Palmetto are thrilled to be able to bring this beer back in support of Charleston Animal Society this year, and we’re sure all the dog and cat lovers out there will enjoy it as much as we do.  Inspired by your favorite cookie, whether that’s a classic sugar cookie or the ultimate chocolate chip, Peace of Cookie is sure to satisfy your sweet tooth.”  The 2020 Rescue Brew Beer will be available at the Palmetto Brewing Company Charleston Taproom this fall.

The three finalist dogs and three finalist cats will each receive a $100 gift certificate for pet supplies at Charleston Animal Society and a “Mega Pupcake” from Cupcake DownSouth. Plus, each of the finalist’s families will receive Rescue Brew Beer!

Feel free to stay in touch with me as we move through this final process.  We are so thrilled at the level of participation and support that this year’s contest received.  We cannot thank you enough for making the Rescue Brew Beer contest a smashing success!
