Our TNR/Community Cats Love Their New Home!

At BARC we love our TNR / Community cats and are grateful for fosters, BARC employees and rescue groups who help us take care of them.  Recently we received a very much-needed donation.  From the estate of Mr. Richard Matelske BARC graciously received a cat feeding station for our parking lot kitties.  Special Thank you Kelli Matelske and Nela Brown from Frisky Paws Rescue for organizing the feeding station.  TNR Community Cats

Saint Arnold supports BARC with newly-named beer, Ale Wagger Brown

(Houston,TX) -At Saint Arnold, we are passionate about animal rescue. A number of us here are proud to have rescue animals as family members.

We’re also passionate about our Brown Ale. We’ve been brewing it since 1995 when we released it to celebrate our one year anniversary.

When we decided recently to give Brown Ale a makeover, we wanted to combine these two passions. Thus, you’ll now enjoy our original Brown Ale as Ale Wagger Brown.

We’ll be donating a portion of the sales of Ale Wagger to support local rescue organizations to improve the lives of animals in our communities. Here in Houston, those funds will go to the city’s BARC to help promote their spay, neuter and adoption efforts.

During our Saturday tour on October 4, representatives from BARC will be here hosting a dog adoption event in our front parking lot. Enjoy an Ale Wagger at the brewery on that day, and you may just find a new furry friend.
