Pinellas Ale Works, commonly referred to as “PAW,” snagged a prestigious title just days before its massive anniversary party.

Located at 1962 1st Ave. S, Pinellas Ale Works was recently given the title of the most "Dog-Friendly Brewery in the U.S," by, a nationwide pet delivery service. It acknowledged PAW's many dog bowls and treats, in addition to its dog-influenced beer names.

"Along with their cute paw print logo, many of the craft brews sport fun dog-inspired names like their Pomeranian Porter and Vanilla Lab Latte," wrote. "Puppy Love, a New England Style IPA, is one of their most popular beers, while their award-winning Milk Bone Sweet Stout and Puppy Breath Hazy IPA are other fan favorites."

Pinellas Ale Works was the only Florida-based brewery that made the cut, but Chewy did give a dog-friendly shout out to Tampa Bay Brewing Co.'s Westchase taproom and Bradenton's Motorworks Brewing.

This newly-deemed title will definitely be celebrated at PAW's anniversary party, happening from 2 p.m.-10 p.m. this Saturday, May 20. This "Barkyard BBQ" event features live performances, a variety of pet-related vendors, a doggy photo booth, barbecue from Made Fresh Taqueria and several exclusive beer releases.

PAW's newly-dropped watermelon shandy,  pink lemonade sour and "Pooch Punch"—a strawberry, raspberry and guava IPA—will all be on tap this Saturday.

A dollar from every watermelon shandy sold will be donated to Pet Pal,  a Pinellas-based animal shelter and clinic.

Pinellas Ale Works made its debut in 2016 and has since maintained its reputation for being  one of St. Pete's most laid-back breweries.  Its indoor-outdoor taproom also regularly hosts a variety of food trucks , trivia nights and its weekly"Yappy Hour" fundraisers.

Pinellas Ale Works' 7th anniversary happens on Saturday, May 20 from 2 p.m.-10 p.m. in St. Petersburg.
