    Covered patio provides shade

    There’s also a separate pavilion with shade. Super dog friendly. There was a Mexican food stand on the day we were there. Great beer as well!

    Vet Student Hang Out

    The only dog-friendly brewery in Gainesville. It can get pretty crowded on the weekends so not the best place if your dog is afraid of crowds or doesn't get along with other dogs.

    Travelers Beware: Not a Restaurant

    Looks like an awesome place for dogs, but if you are mid road trip, not a good place to stop. There is no food.

    We bring our puppy Chester here at least once a week! Very friendly staff and the perfect place to bring your pup. Large grassy area allows for Chester to run around while we enjoy a few beers!
