    I've taken Brettanomyces (Brett to none beer people) to a few breweries/brew-pubs and she's usually with me so it would be nice to hit more spots with her. She's 9 months and has already been to a few off the top of my head.

    Bear Republic, Lagunitas, Kern River, Hangar 24, Wolf Creek, & Beachwood.

    I'm heading to Alpine this weekend and the yelp reviews conflicted about if dogs are allowed or not. I called and they said dogs are currently NOT allowed due to a recent incident with an over excited kid and an over excited dog.

    What are some other places that are dog friendly in California?

    Love your dog & his name. I know Belching Beaver in Vista is dog friendly. When I was there in the summer there were dogs both inside & out on the patio. Also I remember seeing a couple dogs at Societe.

    I've never seen dogs inside the OC breweries. I've seen some outside of Noble, but you can't bring your beer outside. So that doesn't work unless someone else is there to hold the dog. Bottle Logic has a small outdoor patio where beer is allowed but I've never seen dogs out there.

    We're about to do a quick trip down to SD with our dog and it seems like the vast majority of places are dog friendly, with the exceptions of Modern Times Lomaland Fermatorium and Ballast Point Little Italy

    Golden Road is the only spot in LA that I know of that allows dogs. Can confirm that Smog City, Monkish, El Segundo, and Ladyface do NOT

    Monkish does allow dogs, unless this changed recently.

    Some other breweries not mentioned above that I know are dog friendly:

    Iron Fist
    Cismontane (the south OC spot, not sure about the newer Santa Ana tasting room)
    4 Sons (Huntington Beach)

    Why not spare the confusion and leave the dog home?

    Faction in Alameda allows Dogs inside and out.
    Took Marlowe there last weekend.

    I'd be interested in dog friendly bars/taprooms actually as well, but maybe thats for a different thread? Marlowe comes with me to Trappist (back patio) in Oakland, Toronado in SF, Roaring Donkey in Petaluma.

    Dogs are like children to some people! My dog would go everywhere with me, but he's a pitbull and people/businesses love do discriminate against them.

    Dog owners tend to want to spend time with their dogs. Shocking, I know.

    Toolbox allows
    Council, I have seen them in there but never seen a water dish so cannot confirm
    Culture in Solana Beach allows

    Others already mentioned the other ones I tend to visit.

    Stone Escondido is no
    Lost Abbey use to be no because they had a cat, not sure now but I can't say I have seen a dog the past few times I have been there.

    Council is a no - their lease does not allow it. Their landlord lets them have their dog in their, though (big black lab).

    Bottle logic has a dog friendly patio but you'll need to take turns with someone getting beers and watching the dog.
    4 sons and beach city brewery in HB are both dog friendly. Bootleggers is dog friendly. Hopscotch in fullerton has a dog friendly patio with an ok taplist.

    Bootlegger's. Seriously, there's a guy that brings his snake there all the time. (And yes, the jokes just write themselves.)

    We hit Thorn St. Brewery first on Saturday and dogs are allowed there. First time there and we really had a good time.

    Well, there's another reason why not to visit Bootleggers. Wouldn't want to have the loud large size jenga game crashing to the floor freak the sneak out and be near that.

    It's not very big, though in his defense the ladies do like to touch his snake.

    Half Moon Bay Brewing is dog friendly. Even makes special treats for them. Barclays in Oakland always has a water bowl.

    Most stuff up and down the SF Bay area coast is dog friendly. We've taken our pup to Half Moon Bay brewing, Hop Dogma, Burger (not a brewery but great tap selection), Santa Cruz Mtn brewing (they sell dog treats from the meat market next door), Seabright, and our favorite, SARA. A weekly trip to the coast and one or two of those locations is how we socialized our lab puppy. So much attention - who doesn't love a lab puppy?

    We also love Lagunitas and Faction. I just wish TRB allowed dogs and we'd have our favorites covered.

    I'm going to assume you're not a dog owner/lover.

    See the comments from purpleman and sportstar. Most people love their kids, but that doesn't mean they take them anywhere and everywhere with them (or would want to). I'm very close to my cat and I tend to want to spend as much time with him as possible. However, I would not want to take him to a brewery/pub, even if he wanted to (which of course being a sensible cat, he doesn't).

    In my experience, the relationship most dog owners have with their dog is unique, and it's pointless to try to rationalize with them when it comes to that bond. Most owners are not happy or interested in someone telling them that they should just leave the dog at home. Once you realize that's the case, you won't ask "foolish" questions like this any more. :slight_smile:

    Well said!
    My point of bringing up this topic was because I bring my dog with me a lot because I can't leave her at home for a day or 2 all alone if I'm going to be gone that long. So if I happen to be near a brewery, it's nice to know which ones I can stop in and have a drink and/or bite to eat and which ones I can't. I'll be in San Diego all weekend so this info will help me a lot!

    I saw a dog at Rare Barrel this weekend, but I cannot confirm he wasn't a service pup or something....

    So reading some of the rules you could technically take your dog in anywhere and "claim" to be a service-dog and not really get asked if he really is or not.

    I find this interesting and disturbing since it puts the bar/brewery/shop owners in a terrible position.

    It's worse because you can just but "service dog licenses" online.
