DESTIN, Fla. – Destin Brewery has collaborated with Dog-Harmony to feature long-term shelter dogs on the label of its Dog-Harmony Ale launched in November 2021.
“The goal of the beer is to raise awareness for long-time shelter dog cases so that they can get adopted by their forever families,” said Nancy Bown, founder of Dog-Harmony.
“Once that dog is adopted, we will feature the next long-time rescue dog resident from an animal shelter in the Panhandle.”
The first dog to be featured on a label is Koda, a brindle, 18-month-old American bulldog residing at Dog-Harmony since November 2020.
Koda’s previous rescuer went into hospice care, at which point Bown moved him to Dog-Harmony and began basic, then advanced, obedience training.
Koda is friendly with other dogs and cats. He is seeking an active family familiar with large breeds and rescues. His favorite game is to play tug-of-war with his furry friends.
Destin Brewery’s Dog-Harmony Ale is a German Kölsch-style ale. Owners, Chelsea and Kelly Taylor, say they “developed this recipe because we wanted to make a flavorful ale, but also make it light and crisp like a lager. It is a very easy drinker that pairs well with our culinary region favoring seafood dishes.”
The ale won Platinum in the World Beverage Competition and Bronze in the New York International Beer Competition in 2019. It also won Bronze in the New York International Beer Competition in 2021.
To be considered for adoption of Koda, please submit an application form at https://dog-harmony.org/adoption.
Stop by the dog-friendly Destin Brewery tap room or any BŌTE location to buy the award-winning Dog-Harmony Ale. A portion of the proceeds directly supports Dog-Harmony’s humane education programs and, of course, increases the chances of Koda finding his furever home.
