    Brought my pup last night and she had a blast! I was able to bring my dog in as I ordered my beer which was delicious! I also liked that they had wine and mixers too for people who don’t want beer. everyone there was friendly and there were two other pups there for my pup to play with. most likely going back again tonight!

    Great atmosphere

    Excellent food and atmosphere very pet friendly. Water bowls. most restaurants are short staffed so the service was the best it could be considering and the kitchen was very fast and food was all very good. Beware of the somewhat rude blonde female mgr behind the bar. she was hustling but maybe they could get more staff if she wasn’t so rude.

    Would return

    Went here the other day with my pup and the brewery was closed but the brewpub (which was apart of the brewing company) a block or two away was open and they had a nice fenced in area for activities. They also had little fire pits and plenty of seating.

    Wonderful Staff

    They have two locations. I drank at the original one on depot street. Me and my pup went on a weekday afternoon so it was pretty quiet. The front doors were open which allowed me to call out to the bartender who greeted me warmly and explained that dogs were only allowed on the front porch and got me a menu. There is no table service for the porch. When I needed a refill we again stood near the door and the bartender came out to me. Getting outdoor service when alone with a dog you don’t want to leave alone is often a problem. This place handled it beautifully.

    Excellent brews, cool place, friendly employees, live music, and dogs are welcome on the porch!
