Pooches, hooches pack The Joe before Riverdogs game

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) -- Sunday was the third annual Bark for Your Brew event at Joe Riley Stadium, giving people a chance to bring their furry friends with them for a day at the park.

Coastal Empire, Holy City, and several other local breweries teamed up with the Riverdogs staff for a beer tasting event.

Organizers said the combo of beer, baseball, and man's best friend was pretty easy to make memorable.

"We just figured it's three things people love -- so we thought it would be just a fun event for everybody," said Special Events Manager Kristen Wolfe.

A portion of the proceeds from Sunday's event will benefit the K9s for Service, an organization that provided dogs for wounded vets.

After the event, dogs and their owners could stick around for the Riverdogs game.
