Dreams, sometimes, really do come true.

Two of our favourite things in the world are coming together this year: dogs and Halloween. Petrifying pugs, spooky Shar Pei’s and monstrous terrifying terriers will all come together on October 29th outside The Bombed Out Church. The event is hosted by BrewDog and Merseyside Dogs Home to make the spookiest event of the year the best one yet. They’re inviting dogs of all shapes and sizes to meet for a Halloween Puppy Procession lead by a gang of Pugs, showing off your pooches scariest, most terrifying outfits on a stroll around town.


You can even enter your pooch for judging in our Best Dressed Pooch Competition. While the judges deliberate, browse the doggy themed stalls for all things doggo related. Treats and accessories galore. Winners will be announced in The Bombed Out Church and will lead the Puppy Parade back to BrewDog where they will collect their prizes and we’ll have FREE dog beer for all pooches who entered into the competition as well as 10% off food and drink for humans. All money from competition entries will be going towards Merseyside Dogs Home. Find more info about their amazing work here: http://www.merseysidedogshome.org/

We caught up Bethany Grace Hitchin, head pooch parade organiser:

“Here at BrewDog, we’re all about the beer and pooches. We started from very humble beginnings with two guys and their dog brewing up beer and things grew from there so it’s natural for us to honour dogs everywhere with an event like this. The parade will be a procession through town full of pups of all shapes and sizes lead by Pug Pride Liverpool (a gang of local pugs and their owners). It’s a bit of fun and for a great cause.

Starting address: St Luke’s Church (Bombed Out Church) Leece St, Liverpool L1 2TR

Finishing: BrewDog Liverpool, Manolis Yard, 8 Colquitt St, Liverpool L1 4DE

There is minimal parking at either venue so if you are coming by car it is worth using a nearby car park. Please be extra cautious when considering bringing your four legged friend to this event. If you think your dog may be nervous around what could potentially be hundreds of humans and dogs then please leave your dog at home!

You do not need to have a dog to attend this event! Please feel free to come spectate and pet the pooches, and donate to Merseyside Dogs Home while you’re at it. If you have any questions, feel free to e-mail [email protected]
