Raise your paws if you're ready for another pop-up market at the brewery! This September they're opening the parking lot and brewery to local vendors as well as some adorable VIPs from The Animal Protection Society of Durham. These Very Important Pups are a part of the Durham Parks and Recreation's Yappie Hour organization and their cause is a good one. Socialization is important in any dog's daily life no matter the age, and one of the best ways to socialize your pup is to take it to a dog park. Yappie Hour and the Durham Parks and Recreation department have already helped build or improve three local dog parks, and have set their sights on a fourth location at the Rock Quarry. Aside from the dogs, there is also a great lineup of local vendors with some really nice products for sale!
Vendors include - Jacquelyn Leahman – Barn and Lace Erin Stesch – Art & Design by Erin Stesch Kobie Nettles Jennifer Ring – Fabulous Merch- NC Danielle Milner – Elle Woods Noelle Whitley – Bolla Fresca Soap Alex Gates – LularoeAlexGates Brandy Mutchler - Brandy's Soy Candles Kat Nigro – Tilthy Rich Compost Mike Dulude – Sitting bull Sara Slade – Sara Slade Photography Jim Hallenbeck – Jim Hallenbeck Fine Art Yvonne Kovacic – The White Sparrow NC The Salvage Sign - The Salvage Sign Carl Tyson - Dapper Bow Ties What does this mean for you? It means a really good day. The taproom will be open all day with fresh, cold beer pouring as fast as the bartenders can move their hands, and no doubt the food truck Boricua Soul Food Truck will be working at just as fast of a pace. Besides food and drinks, you're welcome to browse the shops and see if anything catches your eye, as well as get some serious dog petting in. While there is no fee, we heavily encourage donations to Yappie Hour, because more places for dogs to be happy is never a bad thing.
