Our Beginning

Samantha & Courtney met while bartending together at Gordon Biersch Brewery in Mission Valley, San Diego . Instantly became best friends with the common love for dogs and craft beer. 

Beginning of 2016, with the help of the Head Brewer of GB, Doug Hasker, they developed the idea of having Yappy Hour Events at the Brewery not only to be a part of his Monthly Year of Beer Events, but as well as promoting a Dog Friendly Patio, the Brewery's Happy Hour, but also raising awareness for a local dog charity or rescue. 

Their furry friends Jack the Dingo & Murphie the Coyote (who are also best buds) were not too happy with the girls when they would hang out and drink Craft beer from the local San Diego breweries soo... they urged the two to create a delicious, but safe "brew" for the pups! 


Samantha 

CO-FOUNDER-MARKETING-POOCH PHOTOGRAPHER

An original Ari"zonie", but Cali girl at heart, moved to the fabulous city after graduating from ASU to create the ultimate dream career. With a passion for dogs and the outdoors, Sam & her dingo pup Jack created SUP Pups San Diego.  Jack always wanted to help out his other friends, so he would donate Stand Up Paddle Board Lessons to local dog events as one of their Raffle Prizes. After donating a Raffle Prize for an event at Rock Bottom in La Jolla, the idea of Yappy Hours began!

Also a bartender at Gordon Biersch in Mission Valley, she met her bar babe Courtney & her pup Murphie! 

Samantha also works for Ola Moana Marketing and manages small businesses & hotels Social Media Accounts.  

 

Courtney

co-FOUNDER-event coordinatoR- Beer connoisseur

Courtney has always been a SoCal babe! She moved from LA to San Diego to attend SDSU. San Diego is where so found her fur baby, Murphie Girl, who loves the beach just as much as she does! While at school, Court stumbled upon the growing craft beer scene. She worked at multiple breweries as an event coordinator before she found her way to Gordon Biersch and her "paw"mate Sam!

She now runs all the off-site, ever so popular, beer festivals as a beer rep for Gordon Biersch! Her love of beer, combined with Sam's love of all things dogs, sparked Pints & Paws Events together!
