Dog-Friendly Pubs

dog friendly pubsSad but true: Not everyone loves your dog as much as you do. But a number of pubs across the country are coming close by opening their doors and patios to your furry friends. Here are 10 places where you can pack your pup and head out for a pint.

Asheville Pizza and Brewing Co.
This longstanding downtown Asheville fave shows its dog dedication in more ways than one with multiple brews named for man’s best friend and by hosting two pet adoptions a year. 77 Coxe Ave., Asheville, NC; 828-254-1281;

Brendan Behan Pub
Irish pubs in Boston are a dime a dozen, but how about one that lets you pack your pooch? At this pub pups roam freely while their owners partake in pints from more than 20 taps, including Guinness, craft domestic and international brews. 278 Centre St., Boston, MA; 617-522-386;

The Bulldog
In the heart of Nola’s Garden District you’ll spy the Bulldog’s expansive outdoor patio open to dogs of all sizes. Order up a brew (they boast 50+ taps and more than 100 bottles) and some snacks, and toss your change into the repurposed tap-handle fountain—they donate the money to local animal shelters. 3236 Magazine St., New Orleans, LA; 504-891-1516;

Grab your pooch and head to the back gravel patio of this East Village oasis where you can sip cask brews, single malts and craft spirits. Just beware of feisty housecat Maggie, who thinks she owns the joint and isn’t afraid to put a nosey pooch in his place. 41 1st Ave., New York, NY; 212-475-5097;

The Dog & Duck Pub
Residents of downtown Austin head to this English pub’s roomy front and side porches where Fido can snack on dog biscuits while you kick back with a beer from one of the 42 taps pouring beer from Texas and beyond. 406 W. 17th St., Austin, TX; 512-479-0598;

The Fat Dog
At this West Hollywood pub, your pup is welcome to hang out with you on the outdoor patio until 6 p.m., after which things get a little too rowdy for furry friends. Think of it as Happy Hour with your furry friend. 801 N. Fairfax Ave., Los Angeles, CA; 323-951-0030;

A gumball machine repurposed to dispense Milk Bones makes for a lucky dog indeed, but this Willamsburg bar keeps people just as happy with one cask line and 18 rotating taps pouring everything from Dogfish Head to Rogue. 303 Bedford Ave., Brooklyn, NY;

Lucky Labrador Brew Pub
This partially solar-powered brewpub in Portland’s pooch- and pedestrian-friendly Hawthorne neighborhood heats their covered patio during the cooler months so you and your dog can kick back with a pint no matter the time of year. 915 SE Hawthorne Blvd., Portland, OR; 503-236-3555;

Norm’s Eatery & Ale House
Named after a beloved dog, this Fremont pub is pet-friendly to its core, with water bowls and treats for Fido and lots of local microbrews and homemade comfort food for you. 460 N. 36th St., Seattle, WA; 206-547-1417

You’ll find pool tables, pinball and pups at this San Francisco Mission district mainstay. First opened as a saloon in the late 19th century, Shotwells oozes old-school charm and has a solid rotating draught list to boot. 3349 20th St., San Francisco, CA; 415-648-4104;
