So what’s up with this bird? Orville is gentlemanly barred owl who lives at On The Wing Raptor Center, just down the road from our brewery. His injuries prevent him from returning to the wild. In addition to being an animal ambassador, Orville helps foster recovering owls who pass through the raptor center.
Animal welfare has long been a key area of support for our Beerlanthropy program, so we’re proud to share a portion of the proceeds from Orville sales to help On the Wing expand their important medical work.
So what’s happening at the release? Doors open at 11am. From 2-5, visitors can meet Jane Kelly from On the Wing and her education team of feathered friends. Pose for a picture and learn about the birds in our woods. At 3:30, two rehabbed broad wing hawks will go back to the wild, followed by an Orville-fostered barred owl at 4:30. You won’t want to miss these wonderful moments!
Like all Smuttlabs offerings, restaurants, bars and bottle shops can only get Orville through the Beer Vault starting on August 29 at 12pm. Both bottles and kegs await, so don’t miss out. For more information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
On The Wing specifically thanks Veterinary Emergency and Surgery Hospital for their vital role in keeping the raptor rehab rate very high.
We’ll see you at the brewery!
