Angelenos love their dogs, but they love their beer too. This is why many Los Angeles breweries are getting on board with making their establishments comfortable for furry, four-legged patrons.
Here is a list of some of the most dog-friendly breweries in Los Angeles County and the scrumptious bites you can enjoy with those crushable brews.
1. Angel City Brewery
No place captures the Angeleno spirit quite like Angel City Brewery in the heart of the Arts District.
A forerunner in L.A.’s craft beer scene since 1997, Angel City Brewery is a place welcome to diverse clientele – Fido included (so long as he’s on a leash).
The great thing about their Public House is that outside food is welcome, which gives you the opportunity to enjoy neighborhood cuisine such as Downtown Taco and Downtown Doggo, or whatever delicious food truck is parked out front each night.
2. The Pub at Golden Road
Golden Road is known for having the most dog-friendly tasting room in L.A. The Atwater Village location near Griffith Park hosts “Puppy Hour” from 3 – 6 P.M. on Mondays through Thursdays. Golden Road donates $1 to a local rescue for every beer sold.
Even better, their delicious apps, such as pretzel mac and fried avocado tacos, are half-off! Your pup won’t miss out on the eats either – for $5 they can enjoy house-made puppy chow made especially for them!
3. Frogtown Brewery
If you happen to be walking your dog along the Los Angeles River and suddenly find yourself parched, why not make a pitstop at Frogtown Brewery? You and your four-legged companions are welcome as long as they’re on their leash.
If they happen to be thirsty too (which they probably will be), Frogtown happily provides water bowls at your request. Enjoy the offerings from that day’s food truck, or have your food delivered right to the tasting room!
4. Trustworthy Brewing Co.
The first core value at Trustworthy Brewing Co. in Burbank is fun, so it’s no surprise that these folks are happy to see your doggos in their tasting room!
Leashed dogs are welcomed with open arms, treats, and water, while their humans get to indulge in delectable brews. They have a full food menu complements of Market City Caffe, who will deliver straight to your barstool.
5. MacLeod Ale Brewing Co.
Anglophiles thirsty for a taste of British Ale brewed fresh in Van Nuys ought to check out MacLeod Ale Brewing Co. They know what it’s like to be without your pup, which is why their dog-friendly tasting room has water bowls available per request.
There is a different food truck almost daily and sometimes even live music.
While we have you here, a rising industry trend is that of brewers starting to explore the close relationship between hops and cannabis. Sometimes, affectionately known as “canna-cousins,” the two go surprisingly well together and may well be the next big thing in brewing.
