Bring in Fall with these Best Dog Friendly Breweries to Grab a Cold One with Your Dog

Fall is in the air and the pictures in Instagram are gradually morphing from beach days to autumn festivities.  As fall moves in so do fall inspired activities.  One festive fall tradition is beer.  Certain towns like Leavenworth,  Washington pride themselves on their Oktoberfest Celebrations. 


Breweries and fall festivals are recognized as a fun place to hang with your friends so why not your furry friends as well?  


As fall moves in stop by one of these dog friendly breweries which seem to be the most cutting edge dog friendly locales where some have even set aside dedicated places to have fun with your pet and are very welcoming to your dogs.  


We have compiled a sort of dog friendly brewery bucket list if you want to make these a sort of destination spot for fun and enjoyment with your dog as you move into fall.


Best Dog Friendly Breweries


OHSO Brewery and Distillery, Arizona


This dog friendly brewery is a fun dog friendly locale and with four locations in Arizona.  Dedicated to dogs almost as much as they are that they feature on tap.  


If you find yourself in Arizona or are seeking to have a dog oriented destination trip to Arizona check out this Brewery and find extensive dog lover reviews and make reservations at Bring Fido.


28 Dog lovers have given this fun spot 5 bones out of five on Bring Fido.


Norm’s Eatery and Alehouse, Seattle, Washington


This spot is actually named after a dog, which is obvious enough upon entry.   According to Bring Fido, Norm and his canine pals adorn much of the wall space. Featuring a nightly food special dubbed the “Doggie Bowl,” the theme is decidedly dog-centric and very laid back.


The menu features Seattle favorites like country fried steak and eggs, smoked salmon Benedict, pepper burgers, chicken marsala, Creole blackened shrimp and grits, and meatloaf. 


You can make reservations and see more reviews for Norm’s at Bring Fido

Denver Beer Co., Denver, CO


This highly rated Dog-friendly brewery with a beautiful outdoor beer garden allows pooches on leash in the building and you can even sample a “Dog Beerscuit” a special doggie treat that is made from the spent grain from the brewing process.

Guests rave about the friendly staff and the water bowls for the pups but did note that the only food was outside in a food truck (except for the doggie biscuit of course).

Wicked Weed Brewing , Asheville, NC


A brewery and restaurant that serves burgers, sandwiches, and dinner entrees like pork shank and Carolina Bison meatloaf. Outdoor patio welcomes dogs.

Wicked Weed Brewing was started by two families and has over 25 cutting edge beers on tap.  They are a community focused company and regularity support the communities they operate in and now have 4 locations.  

Big Dogs Brewing, Las Vegas, NV 

Big Dog offers seven signature small-batch brews, plus a variety of 3-10 seasonal and reserve beers at a time. The food menu includes typical bar fare like nachos, wings, salads, pizza, sandwiches, burgers, and steaks.

If you have stumbled upon @herboozytails on Instagram and cracked a smile at Austin Blogger Melanie’s adventures with her three pups, one a Great Dane!  If you found Melanie and her beer adventure tips then you likely also found her Austin Dog Friendly Brewery Directory.  We thought that of all of her recommendations, Beerburg Sounded the Best.  

Beerburg Brewing, Austin Texas

Dog-friendly patio and fenced-in dog park.

The newest brewery along what I call the “Beermuda Triangle” (you know what I’m talking about), Beerburg has a huge dog-friendly beer garden for you and your pup to hang out in. Since they do make food in-house, pups are not allowed in the taproom, but that’s okay because they have their very own fenced-in dog park on the grounds. Great job targeting the dog owners, Beerburg!


Trackside – Kulshan Beer Garden, Bellingham, WA

We were lucky enough to hit the Trackside Beer Garden and watch some mountain bikers, hang out at the Farmer’s Market and grab a cold one while the dogs romped all on a sunny day in September.  The whole experience is a treat and if you find yourself around do not hesitate to stop in.  Food trucks are everywhere as well.  

If you are looking to experience the some fun fall festivities look no further than these great dog friendly breweries and enjoy some seasonal fall beers with your furry pal.
