For the uninitiated, Strong Rope Brewery is the unspoken dog haven of Gowanus. A sweet, simply-decorated space tucked away on a sides street, set-back but for a small, windowed, closet-like corner full of board games and the occasional puppy snout resting curiously on a shelf. On any given night, the bartender’s dog and patrons’ pups are lively co-mingling behind the bar and across the floor.

Now Strong Rope – which, psst, is a Beer Book bar – is hosting a formal, official, 110 percent authorized doggo convention. It’s for a good cause, too: all proceeds will be donated to Muddy Paws Rescue NYC, an organization which recently rescued more than 100 dogs from Hurricane Harvey-affected shelters.

Strong Rope Loves Muddy Paws will be held on Sunday, October 1 from 1-5pm at Strong Roper Brewery in Gowanus, 574A President St. There’s a cover of five belly rubs, two behind the ear scratches and one head pat.
