The time has come to honor one of the most important members of the Southbound Brewing team: the morale-boosting, pest-chasing, overseeing brew cat.
A step up from the title Holly Golightly famously bestowed upon her feline, Cat, Southbound’s furry friend is appropriately called Brew Cat. The brown-and-white kitty is the star of the show on Friday, and the exclusive beer, Brew Cat Strut, is an ode to Brew Cat’s dedication to patrolling the premises, keeping employees in line, and providing the finest company while the team gets the job done.
The brainchild of Southbound Brand Ambassador Jeremy Hammons, who hits the skins in The Train Wrecks and is a certified Cat Dad in his own right, Brew Cat Strut is a Munich Dunkel lager—smooth, rich, and complex, it’s full-bodied without being too heavy, striking the perfect balance of bitterness and sweetness.
It wouldn’t be a proper Southbound party without some tunes. Hammons’ bandmate Jason Bible will play a special solo set; it’s always a treat to see the singer-songwriter go it alone.
Entry to the event grants you six six-ounce beer samples, your choice of a souvenir pint glass or a six-pack, 22-ounce bomber, or a filled growler to take home.
In keeping with the theme of honoring our furry friends, Southbound has saved all the leftover grain for the brew ; it’ll be baked into dog biscuits by the folks at Central Animal Hospital. A portion of proceeds from the cover charge, and all profits from Central’s unique dog treats will be donated to the Humane Society of Greater Savannah.
Beer for a good cause? It’s all the more reason to embrace your crazy cat person self, dust a few extra feline hairs on your ensemble, and get out to celebrate.
