- Circle Brewing Co.
- Hops & Grain
- Jester King Brewery

“I got involved with the Barks for Beers inaugural event because one of my clients is the head of fundraising for Divine Canines, a therapy dog organization that is growing rapidly in Austin,” said Bed and Biscuit Austin owner Kara Crawford Norton. “It's important to me to support my client, and because therapy assistance dogs are something I'm personally passionate about.”
In addition to training dogs and their owners to act as a therapy team, Divine Canines organizes therapy dog visits with local special care facilities. Their services are free to Austin area children, the elderly and wounded soldiers that are battling disease, illness and injury.
