Default The "dog" name in breweries.

Not sure if this is the right category to post this in but...

Do dogs have symbolism pertaining to beer? I have noticed a lot of breweries have "dog" in their names such as...

Hair of the Dog
Flying Dog
Dogfish Head
LuckyLabs
Laughing Dog
Thirsty Dog
Sea Dog

I was just wondering if anyone knew if there was a special meaning...

There may be more to it, but the simple answer in my mind is that people love their pets and dogs are mans best friend.

Bingo. I like to hear the stories where the brewers have their dogs in the brewery with them all day. I know I would.

That's a nice thought: me running my own brewery with my two sons and dog!

Dogfish Head is named after a place in Maine called "Dogfish Head", but the rest may just be as simple as love for Dogs...
