Lily: a very special beer release

January 9, 2020

We’re brewing a Black Currant Berliner Weisse in memory of Neil’s best girl, a German Shorthaired Pointer named Lily. Her coloring, heritage, and the sheer joy she radiated inspired Lily’s name. She was one of a kind, and this beer will be, too!

Join us at Horse Thief Hollow Brewing Co. for this very special beer release on Friday, January 24, starting at 4 pm. A portion of the proceeds will go to Illinois Shorthair Rescue, a nonprofit group that helps German Shorthair Pointers in need.
