Today’s news:

Two great things — beer and adoptable pets — come together at the Bell House

If you like Sweet Action and puppies, you’ll find yourself in good company at the Bell House this month.

That’s because on March 26, the Gowanus hosts “Beer for Beasts,” a day of good food, beer and tunes that benefits the Humane Society.

Better still is that Sixpoint Brewery will present at least 16 new brews created specifically for the fundraiser.

“We’re excited to be working with our friends at Sixpoint to celebrate our passion for good beer, food, people, and our love for animals,” said Todd Alström, founder of BeerAdvocate, an online network of beer enthusiasts.

Beyond the beer and beasts, JerseyFresh Burlesque will provide some live entertainment, and Calexico, Mile End, Pizza Moto and Prime Meats will provide some food pairings to match the Red Hook-made brews. Because after all that beer, it’ll be wise to have some food in your stomach.

“Beer for Beasts” at the Bell House [149 Seventh St. between Second and Third avenues in Gowanus, (718) 643-6510], March 26 from 1-5 pm and 6-10 pm. Tickets $60. For info, visit
