What’s better than beer and puppies? Beer and puppies in the same place, and “Barktoberfest” had just that. Now in its second year, Barktoberfest participants brought their costumed canines to participate in a costume contest and other festivities.

The crowd favorite was a dog dressed as Tobias Fünke from “Arrested Development” (and yes, he was dyed blue). Those in attendance could also enjoy food truck snacks, local brews and live music with all proceeds benefiting The Washington Animal Rescue League.
