Local AHS & Brewery to host Ales for Tails


WAYNESBORO- A local non-profit and craft brewery have teamed up to
search for the cutest, spunkiest and best pet to be featured on their inaugural Ales for Tails beer

The Antietam Humane Society (AHS) is currently accepting nominations on the non-
profit’s website through April 30.

Voting will begin May 1 and run through late summer. One lucky pet will be chosen at their closing event, Dogtoberfest, October 14 and will be the face of Rough Edges Brewing’s Ales for Tails brew which will be released late 2023.

AHS is based in Waynesboro, PA and aims to promote the well-being of animals and
their community through education, care, adoption and outreach. In 2022, AHS boasted a save-
rate of 94%, but success like that is only possible through continued support from our
community. “We are so grateful to local businesses like Rough Edges that strive to help people
and animals alike” said Kacie Morrell, Executive Director of AHS.

AHS has always held a special place in Rough Edges’s owner’s Casey and Wesley
Phebus’s heart which is where they adopted their beloved brew dog, Cinder over 8 years ago.
“We are always looking for ways to get and stay involved within our community.” Casey said.
“AHS is an excellent organization who goes above and beyond for pets and our community.”
Husband and wife, Wesley and Casey opened Rough Edges Brewing in the former News Agency
location on Main Street just over 3 years ago to provide excellent craft beer and entertainment
where they grew up.

All of the donations for nominations and the voting will go to AHS to support their
efforts. The nominations cost just $10 per pet and you can cast votes for your favorites for as
little as $1 starting in May. You can visit their website to nominate your pet at
www.antietamhumanesociety.org/ales-for-tails-contest. Don’t have a pet to enter? You can also
nominate one of the shelter pets and help to find their furever home!
