Ales for Tails Contest: Nominate Your Pet for Rough Edges Brewing Beer Can


WAYNESBORO- The Antietam Humane Society (AHS) and Rough Edges Brewing have teamed up for their second annual Ales for Tails Contest. The contest is accepting nominations for the cutest, spunkiest and funniest pet to be featured on the Rough Edges beer can. Owners are encouraged to nominate their pets by submitting photo entries along with a $10 donation to AHS. Two rounds of voting will be held from July through early October, where $1 donations will be made to vote for the spokesdog for the Ales for Tails brew. Last year, the contest raised just shy of $10K for the shelter.

The winner will be announced October 12th at Dogtoberfest, fun event featuring costume contests, food and live music for pet owners. Additionally, AHS and REB will host Paws 5k with the generous help of MainStreet Waynesboro, Inc. at Memorial Park. This is a fun walk/run where pets are encouraged to participate.

The beer, Ales for Tails, will be released in 16oz. cans and feature a photo of the winner. It will be an American Lager, available for purchase at Rough Edges Brewing as well as select distributors in MD and PA.

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.

“It’s important to us to support the community that has continued to support us since we opened our doors over 4 years ago.” Casey of Rough Edges said. “AHS is an excellent organization who goes above and beyond for pets and our community.” She and her husband, Wes opened Rough Edges Brewing in the former News Agency location on Main Street. They have a food menu focusing on high quality hoagies and paninis along with their extensive craft beer and PA produced wine and cocktail menu. They were recently voted the Best of the Tristate in Verstandig Media’s competition for Best Brewery. Submit your nominations at Ales for Tails Contest – Antietam Humane Society.
