Just buy a special Divine Canines pint glass then take it and the accompanying “Pawsport” to the breweries listed above to get a pour! During the event dates, each brewery will be giving one pour per Pawsport, so check out as many as you can.
You can purchase glasses for $30 plus tax at the participating breweries during the event or at these local retailers:
* Copeland Jewelers
* Mud Puppies (both locations)
* Woof Gang Bakery (Austin, Cedar Park and West Lake Hills locations)
Proceeds from the sale of the glasses will go directly to Divine Canines to support free therapy dog visits at more than 195 partner sites and events around Central Texas.
