Newest local brewpub, these guys are already winning awards. Not much there in the way of food, but the beer and atmosphere is outstanding. Great patio with fire pits where you can take your pup. Get tasters to see which beer you like best! (No wine or mixed drinks, fair warning).

A true brewery, Pug Ryan's offers great happy hour daily, my favorites are the chicken wings and ahi tuna tacos. Dog friendly summer beer garden on the grass. Dinners are great too, and you can bring back a 6-pack of beer or a growler to enjoy later.
