@ Southern Tier Brewing Company June 12th, 2018!
About Bark N' Brew
CCHS hosts four signature events throughout the year. Unlike the other three, Bark N' Brew tickets are very limited and highly sought after.
The event is hosted by Southern Tier Brewing Company, one of the crown jewels of Chautauqua County. Their Empty Pint tasting room and outdoor patio create the perfect environment to put "fun" back in fundraising! We also thank our sponsor Happy Hounds Hotel and Day Spa.

What happens at Bark N' Brew?
When you come to Bark N' Brew, you'll be greeted at check-in by volunteers that can explain when and where all the event features will take place. You'll also get a special gift as our thanks to you. When you present your Bark N' Brew event ticket you will receive your one (1) complimentary Cash Bash Raffle Ticket (See Cash Bash information and rules). Ticket holders can then enjoy a selection of food stations (menu may vary) and enjoy two ales on behalf of STBC. During dinner, guests are encouraged to bid on some pretty cool ticketed auction items collected by our all-volunteer staff. You can even take your chance at our 50/50 raffles held throughout the evening.
Don't forget... we always save the best for last! Our live auction features some of the items that were TOO great for the silent auction.
About Our Host
This will be the fifth year that Southern Tier Brewing Company has graciously hosted the Bark N' Brew and we couldn't be more thankful for their support of our shelter and hospitality. Thank you, STBC! Founders Phineas DeMink and Allen “Skip” Yahn started the brewery with the vision of reviving the practice of small-batch brewing to a region rich in brewing tradition. In 2002, with equipment gained from the purchase of the Old Saddleback Brewing Co. in Pittsfield, Massachusetts, the Southern Tier Brewing Company began production in the woods just outside of Lakewood, New York. By 2003, select varieties of small batch ales were locally distributed, and by 2005, sales to a rapidly growing base of fans covered the majority of New York State and Pennsylvania. The brewery produced Pilsner, Mild Ale, and India Pale Ale before adding a successful roster of seasonal beers to the portfolio.
Southern Tier immediately garnered regional attention and demand quickly outgrew what our modest facility could handle. In 2009 a new 20,000-sq-ft building was added to the property. In this new facility, the small brewery was able to grow and offer the product both nationally and internationally, while still satisfying its loyal local fans.
