Four Peaks Brewing Co. is tapping a new Single Tank Series, and this one has heart!
Harvey’s HawkIBA is coming your way Friday, October 28! Harvey’s HawkIBA has a malty backbone with huge hop flavor and aroma with a Citra and Simcoe hop base to add a citrus aroma. It will be available at the original Four Peaks in Tempe, Four Peaks Grill & Tap in Scottsdale, and Four Peaks Tasting Room on Wilson. It will also be featured at this year’s Four Peaks Fall Festival.
A Beer with a purpose
This India Brown Ale was brewed with a particular purpose. This beer is named after one of our Brewers, Drew’s dog, Harvey. Harvey is a special little guy. Harvey was rescued just two years ago at our Local Fest at Wilson Street.
Harvey (then called Hawkeye) is missing an eye, but that never slowed him down. Jessie Kinneer, a member of our HR team, was volunteering with AZK9 Rescue and brought Hawkeye to the Four Peaks Local Fest as a part of the organization’s Amazing Rescue Race.
“I was volunteering with the rescue taking part in their event called the Amazing Rescue Race, ” Jessie tells me as she recalls Harvey’s meeting Drew and Drea, Drew’s wife. “This event is where a volunteer is partnered with one adoptable dog and they are given new tasks each week to complete with their dog in order to get them out of the rescue house and gain exposure in order to hopefully find their forever home.” Jessie continues, “Hawkeye was my partner that year (2015) and found Drew during one of our outings as part of this challenge. Hawkeye is a lab/shar-pei mix dog that the rescue saved from [a] county [shelter] because he had an enlarged eye and was going to be euthanized because [the] county doesn’t have the funds to help medically needy animals.”
A portion of the proceeds from this beer will go back to AZK9 Rescue. Four Peaks hopes this tribute beer reminds us how critical rescues are to these animals and the people who give them fur-ever homes.
AZK9 Rescue is a 501c33 non-profit organization founded in 2010 by a group of individuals who wanted to make a difference in the lives of companion animals in Maricopa County. The members of AZK9 are willing to give their time, passion and knowledge to offer proactive solutions to address the pet overpopulation.
