Interesting... and Lagunitas' logo is a dog as well. Tried a beer from a Baltimore brewery called "Pub Dog" in July as well. Never really thought about that... cool

Agreed. That's the same reason most of my beers are named after hookers. And the other ones are named after Iggy Pop and Manute Bol.

I wouldn't include Hair of the Dog in that list, though. That's from a saying and is not about actual dogs, you know?

Lucky Lab in Portland was one of those dog friendly places though. When I was going there, people would always bring their dogs.

My labels say:

"Brewed by a drunk and his two dogs..."

They're my brew buddies....though they don't help very much....

My dog is always around when I'm brewing, but man I really should start blocking him from the area. For some reason, I just can't do it
