Both you and your four legged friends can cool off with their refreshing brews on tap (but water for the pups, of course). Dogs are welcome on the first floor patio of their three-story tasting room. A great place to take in the view of OB with your favorite pal. Warning: with so many delicious beers to choose from it may cause your dog to beg.

Probably not, but your pup will certainly try!
