Dog-Friendly Breweries

This post is out of date. For an up-to-date list of dog-friendly businesses, click here. For a more complete (and ever-evolving) list of dog-friendly breweries, check out the Brewery Guide.

Since getting a dog, I understand how great it is to know which places in the city are dog-friendly. Fortunately, many restaurants with patios are dog-friendly in the Cincinnati area. In that same breath, many breweries are, too. With colder weather looming, it’s more difficult to find places that are dog-friendly inside AND out. Below is a list of breweries in the greater Cincinnati area and their dog-friendly statuses — yes, inside and out, or patio only; and no.

A number of breweries also serve food, are logistically unable, or have chosen to not be dog-friendly (their prerogative), so use this list accordingly when planning your next visit with your four-legged friend(s).

  1. Paradise Brewing is dog-friendly inside and outside.

    1. Thank you! Information has been updated.

  2. Paradise Brewing is in fact dog friendly… they even have a shop dog that’s there everyday

    1. Thanks for the insight. Content has been edited accordingly!

    Actually Rivertown is dog friendly inside the bar room only, not in the game room 🙂 our pup goes every Weds.

    1. Thanks for the heads up! I had no idea. 🙂

      1. Rachel says:

        New rivertown in Monroe is on the no list due to the restaurant focus. Not on patio either at this point.

    2. Rachel says:

      Also, I’ve learned Fig Leaf is a no because the owner is highly allergic to dogs. So it’s not just a screw you sentiment 🙂

      1. Yep! I was sure to ask FigLeaf directly about their dog-friendly status, and I totally understand. How a business is run is the owners’ prerogative 🙂

  4. While technically not a brewery, Growler House is also very dog friendly and has beers from most people on this list! (can add to your next round-up).

    1. The Growler House is one of Franklin’s favorites! Will certainly be adding to the more comprehensive list. Thanks for reading! 😃
