SoCo Dog Friendly Breweries & Taprooms

Being a craft beer lover and a new dog mama, I have changed the way I travel and the places I go out to. It can be tough to find dog friendly places, even though now in Sonoma County, dogs are welcome on the patios of most places that serve food {though still, businesses can accept dogs or not on their patios so read the signs}. I have scouted out the best places to have a good, local beer, and be with my dog. We all want to go on a nice long hike, play with our pups and then enjoy a cold one, because let’s face it, we all want to see this face at the end of the day!   

Dogs

Here are my hot spots!

Lagunitas Brewing Company

They have a huge {Semi-covered} outdoor space with picnic tables and ample seating. Dogs are welcome and you’ll find water bowls scattered throughout the property. Fun times will be had by all humans and their dogs alike at this hip beer spot. Come for the beer, stay for the music and the dog friendly hospitality. This is on my top list of places to go because my pooch has a blast here. Enjoy the peanuts but careful with your pup around those shells!!

 

Fogbelt Brewing

Dog friendly outdoor space and they serve food. It’s a small place, both inside and outside, but they’ve got a nice variety of cold beers and their menu is seasonal and well thought out. It’s a great addition to the {near} downtown area.

St. Florian’s Brewery

This power couple has an awesome little spot just outside of the downtown area in Windsor. They recently expanded their seating space and built an outdoor patio. You can enjoy your beers inside or outside with your pup {Aron and Amy have their own dog too who can often be found in the tap room- he’s a dalmatian too!}. They have food trucks regularly and post all of the details on their facebook page, so check them out and give them a like!

Carneros Brewing Company

Well made beers from a wine family. This location is definitely the key- they have it made out there in the heart of the Carneros region in wine country, between Sonoma and Napa. A large industrial space houses their tanks and taproom, outside hops are planted alongside fountains and a small pond with flowers are grass. It’s a great setting for a nice cold brew with your dog.

Woodfour

I have been to Woodfour a few times, they have food and a huge variety of their own beers, as well as other beers on draft. Their patio overlooks the Barlow, allowing a nice afternoon of people watching.

 

Ausiellos 5TH Street Grill

Family owned and operated. Great food, cooked to order. Great local beers on draft and they have all of the sports games on, wherever you sit. Out on their patio, it’s covered with fans so is nice and pleasant during most seasons. There are TV’s at both sides of the patio to watch the latest game, and the atmosphere is great for a dog- it’s spacious and comfy for everyone.
