3 Cheers for Charity!
FEEL GREAT. DO GOOD. DRINK WELL!
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.
