Here Are 10 Breweries That Allow Dogs, So You Can Enjoy Patio Season With Your Pup
One of my favorite things to do is take my dog out to a brewery with me. It's a fun way for the two of us to spend a Saturday afternoon together. She gets lots of attention from everyone at the brewery (read: all the ear scratches and belly rubs a dog would want) and I get to hang out and enjoy a new brew for a bit. If you're like me and you're looking for a new place to bring your pup and grab a beer, here are the 10 breweries that allow dogs.
Now that winter is finally gone (for now), it's time to start thinking about some outdoor plans. Sure, the beach sounds great, but that requires some planning. However, patio season is just about upon us —and that doesn't require much prep.
TBH, the winter weather has kept us indoors a little more than I would've liked. Now that it's warming up outside, the two of us are more than ready for patio season. Across the country, there are a handful of breweries with awesome outdoor patios that allow dogs. You should be able to find one in your state, but it's best to call before you and your pooch show up. Some breweries may require vaccination paperwork and other documents to ensure the safety of you, your pet, and others at the brewery.

Denver Beer Co.'s Platte Street Taproom is located inside of an old car garage in the downtown area of the Mile High city. When the weather is warm, you can sit on the patio with your pup.

Green Flash Brewing Company — San Diego, California

Not gonna lie — it was a long winter. I'm so glad the weather is finally warm enough to enjoy patio season with my pup. Just remember to check with your local brewery before you arrive with your dog. While not always the case, some establishments may require paperwork and other documentation that ensures your dog is safe to be around other animals and people. Otherwise, enjoy the special outdoor time with your four-legged best friend.
