Secondhand Hounds is one lucky organization selected by an Indeed Brewing Company employee to be featured as their Indeed We Can Nonprofit of the week in September! “Indeed We Can” is a charitable initiative of Indeed Brewing Company in which the selected nonprofit of the week receives all net proceeds from the taproom on their designated date. You can learn more about this initiative here.  
We will have adoptable dogs onsite from 6-8pm. The patio is dog friendly so feel free to bring your pup!
All net profits from that night are given to Secondhand Hounds, which include beer and non-alcoholic drinks from both taprooms, as well as merch sales from the gear shop!  Secondhand Hounds has been assigned Wednesday, October 18th. We want YOU to join us in having a beer and thanking Indeed! Please join us in spreading the word about this fun event and come have a beer to support SHH! What better way to give back?!
