The Maui Brewing Company will provide four of their special brews for the event. Gourmet German fare will include Stuffed Chicken Cordon Bleu, Kase-Spatzle, Kassler Rippchen, Fire Roasted Apple Strudel, vegetarian options and much more. MHS will also set up a special keiki tent with root beer floats and many fun, animal-related games, crafts and activities.
Barktoberfest emcee Shaggy will keep the night rolling along, accompanied by live music featuring Lisa Owen & the Village Musicians (Hawai‘i’s only oompah band), the Ha‘ikü Hillbillys and the incomparable Jimmy Mac & the Kool Kats!
Although MHS adoptable pets will not be in attendance, this event is all for them. All of the proceeds from Barktoberfest will provide safe and nurturing shelter, food and veterinary care for animals in need, help reunite lost pets with their families and help the orphans find their loving, forever-homes.
