Phoenixville, PA ▬ Peggy wins at Sly Fox!
May 1st, 2011 saw an awesome amount of news certainly not the least of which is the fact that a 3-legged goat sponsored by Weyerbacher won the Sly Fox Bock Fest!
Peggy, the beloved 16 month old ruminant, was rescued by Weyerbacher brewer Colin Presby who has trained her to be the fastest goat known to beer fans — regardless of her physical handicap. Peggy instantly won the sympathy vote with all who saw her and could still count to four. Her fans donned bright green TEAM PEGGY T-shirts and chanted “PEGGY! PEGGY! PEGGY!” which could be heard all over Pennsylvania. The team’s run of forty shirts were sold-out almost immediately – three were held ’till the end and were auctioned off for a total of $201. All proceeds from the sale of the shirts will be donated to the Berks County Humane Society.
Peggy’s own website or facebook page will be online within a few days and will be a source of encouragement for handicapped goats the world over. More shirts are being printed which will be offered for sale; the proceeds will continue to fund Berks County Humane Society.
In the coming days we’ll post a link to Peggy’s page. In the meantime, you can check out Jack Curtain’s article here and visit the Weyerbacher facebook page to view all the pics and video which we’ll be uploading as they come in.
