3 Cheers for Charity!

Something very cool happens each and every Thursday at your neighborhood Big Dog's... When you purchase a Big Dog's Brew each Thursday, you not only receive a delicious, award-winning hand crafted beer to enjoy, but you also receive a wooded Big Dog's Brewing Co. token.

What in the world is the Wooden Nickel for? Every Thursday at your neighborhood Big Dog’s, we celebrate 3 Cheers for Charity!  For each Big Dog’s Brew you buy, Big Dog’s will donate 25¢ to a charity of your choice.  As you enjoy your Big Dog’s Brew, we give you a wooden nickel for each beer you buy throughout the day and night, every Thursday.   Each token represents a 25¢ donation.  At each entrance, you will see a wooden box at each door.  Each box has 3 slots, one for each of our featured charities.

The featured charities will change from time to time.  All are good causes worthy of your support.  It’s easy - on your way out the door, just place the tokens you’ve received in the wooden box in the slot designated for your charity of choice.  We’ll take care of the rest.
