Relaxing with your favorite craft brew is nice, but having your dearest pup at your side while you savor each sudsy sip makes the moment that much more meaningful (and certainly relaxing, with a furry friend nearby to scratch).
But it is an experience ale aficionados can generally only enjoy at home, or at a friend's pad, for taverns and brewhouses aren't typically places for pooches to hang out.
There are exceptions to this rule, and they often spring up when the seasonal celebrations are in high gear, when the thought of leaving our hounds for festive but dog-free merrymakery is a glum one. The solution? Spots around town that invite Spot along for the good times.
What to do, where to go and what to see
But the celebration isn't just about having your shaggy one nearby. A bevy of dogly vendors, including Healthy Spot, Sportsleash, Brew Bites Dog Treats, and a number of others, will be there for you to peruse, chat with, and buy from.
As for the craft beer part? That, too, will be ready for purchase and on the flow (Fido has his own nibbles; the beer is for you).
As for the snapshot to commemorate it all? There's a pet-ready photo booth.
This isn't a nighttime soiree, note, but an afternoon bark bash. Start time is noon, and all doggies and their humans shall be on their way at 5 o'clock.
It isn't every yuletide party that welcomes our woofers. Give an arf for this Arts District suds stalwart and their devotion to dogs.
