Estes Chamber Foundation Coolest Dog Contest

Back by popular demand - the Estes Chamber Foundation and The Pet Association of Estes Park will kick-off the 3rd annual Coolest Dog Contest on April 1st to find the coolest floofy pups in town to grace the labels of Avant Garde beer and Snowy Peaks wine. The contest runs thru April 30th. Proceeds will benefit the Estes Chamber Foundation and Pet Association of Estes Park. The Chamber Foundation will focus their donations on local education needs for 2023 in partnership with the Estes Park School District. The Pet Association will receive 10% of net proceeds to fuel their ongoing mission to serve the needs of the four-legged friends in our community.

Here's how it works: Beginning on April 1st, enter your pooch in Coolest Dog Contest by completing the entry form online at and making a $10 donation. Once registered, share your personal web-link with friends and family to vote. Each vote is a $1 donation.

The first place pup with the highest number of votes in each category gets their adorable fuzzy face featured on the front of a special-edition label from our craft beverage community:

  • Pawsh Wine sponsored by Snowy Peaks Winery will feature the small dog category
  • Barky Mountain Majesty sponsored by Avant Garde Aleworks will feature the four-legged royalty of the bunch
The 2nd and 3rd place dogs in each category will also be recognized on the back label of the can or bottle.

To help "get out the vote," you can bring your dog to yappy hours at Avant Garde Aleworks on April 4th and 18th from 5p-6p. At each yappy hour, we'll also be registering pups and meeting the contenders.

The 1st place Coolest Dog in each category will receive:

  • Bragging rights
  • 3 four packs from Avant Garde or 2 wine bottles from Snowy Peaks with first, second, and third place dogs on the label
  • Social media recognition
Second and third place winners will each received:
