Barks for Beers: Dogs, Craft Beer, and a Good Cause

Ever notice the overlap of craft beer and dog lovers? Well so did Divine Canines. This year their fundraising event, Barks for Beers, is partnering with 30 of Austin’s finest craft breweries for a fun, month-long, community event for you and your pup!

Barks for Beers 2017 is bigger than ever with 30 craft breweries participating this year! First year there were only 8 breweries participating, then 12, then 20, now 30!

Here’s how it works:

Grab a Divine Canines pint glass for $20 at any of Divine Canine’s partner breweries or retailers. With your glass you receive one free pour at each participating brewery for the entire month of May. You’ll even get your very own ‘passport’ to keep track of the breweries you’ve visited!

Proceeds from sales of the glasses go directly to Divine Canines to allow them to train more dog-and-handler teams to continue free therapy dog services at more than 115 sites around Austin and Central Texas.

Your support means more therapy dogs can inspire, comfort, and revitalize people in our community!

When you buy one of the pint glasses, you are helping Divine Canine recruit volunteers. You can make sure that the volunteers come from all walks of life and help keep their training costs as low as possible for all our dog-and-handler teams.

Wondering who’s that handsome, furry star of my photoshoot at Zilker Park? Well that’s our crazy Border Collie mix, Landon! Maybe you recognized him from my guide to the 29 Best Dog-Friendly Bars and Restaurants in Austin.

If you can’t get enough of him, he’s on Instagram @TheAustinCollie! Go give a follow, you’ll make him so happy!
