Summer is just around the corner, and that means you may soon head down to your favorite brewery to enjoy a cold one on the patio. Did you know there are many breweries across the country that are dog friendly?
We’ve compiled a list of some of the best breweries across 10 cities well known for being dog-friendly, where your pup can accompany you. Please note, it is strongly recommended that you call ahead prior to your visit to confirm the breweries pet policy, as it can change at any time. It is also important that before you head out with your dog, you understand how they behave in social situations; aggression and alcohol is not a good mix!
