This year’s GWAR-B-Q would not be possible without a slew of kick ass sponsors including:

ringdogrescueLogoRing Dog Rescue

Ring Dog Rescue is a rescue group dedicated to the “Pit Bull type dogs”, which is defined as any dog having bulldog lineage. We are a 501 (c)3 nonprofit organization and are currently listing adoptable pit bulls from, not only Ring Dog Rescue, but our other rescue friends and those who have opened their door to an orphaned pit bull in private rescue.


Pabst Blue Ribbon

Pabst Blue Ribbon-Sponsoring the Scumdog Stage: Home of GWAR. Pabst Blue Ribbon has long been the unofficial drink of punk rock in Richmond, Virginia. Numerous fancy pants beer companies spend their money on multi-million dollar advertising campaigns, but PBR is about putting out a good product and bringing true value to consumers. In their own words: “We want to be there when you’re having fun, which is why PBR believes in supporting the communities that support us. Our distinction as the fastest growing American lager in the country tells us we’ve found a pretty good recipe.”

Mount Baker Vapor

Mount Baker Vapor is known for their 100% American-made e-liquids. The company recently launched a line of five official GWAR fluids: Bloodbath, Jizmoglobin, GWARY4, Spew and German Chocolate Beefcake. Bohabs and vaping aficionados alike have been praising these high-quality, low-priced juices and other vaping supplies and all will be available to try at Mount Baker Vapor’s vending tent at the GWAR B-Q.

Blakhart teamed up with Pustulus Maximus prior to him stepping in to fill the shoes of his fallen Scumdog, Flattus Maximus. Pustulus and Blakhart worked together to co-design one of the most unique and feature loaded guitars available today, the Wargoul.

Blakhart is owned and operated by musicians, for musicians. We are proud to work with Pustulus as well as Jack Owen (Deicide), Mike Flores (Origin), Philip Fasciana (Malevolent Creation), Justin Broadrick (Godflesh/Jesu), Tomasz HAL Halicki (Vader) and dozens of other guitar and bass players around the world
