REVIEW: Spotted Dog Brewery

Love this place! 

First of all, it's named the Spotted Dog.  How do you not love a spotted dog?  Second, when you order a beer, you get a complimentary bucket of roasted peanuts in the shell.  Third, their beer f**king rocks!

Did I mention there is a dog-friendly patio with umbrellas to keep you in the shade?  (I was so excited about the beer, I forgot to take a picture of the patio.)  The inside is brand new and is very light and airy.

I had the IPA and Doug had the Cream Ale.  Both were great.  The food is better than you'd expect from a brewery, but not anything to really write home about.  I had the "Nosh Board" which was a really good keilbasa-type sausage, several hunks of good-quality cheese, excellent homemade olive tapenade and a few mediocre pretzel rolls.  Doug got the sliders, which were also on the pretzel rolls and served with a salad.  The server was friendly and efficient. 

Bottom line:  come here for the beer (not necessarily the food) and definitely bring your pups!
