Dog-friendly breweries in Indianapolis


A beer in hand is always more enjoyable when you can share the time with your best friend. For many, their best friend is covered in fur and not always allowed to go everywhere humans can go. However, there are quite a few dog-friendly breweries around Indy.

Indiana City Brewing Co.

This comfortable brewery has one of the most diverse selections of beer in the city. So, while you enjoy one or two of their many offerings your furry friend can curl up and enjoy the cooling concrete floor.

24 E. Shelby St., 317-643-1103,

Chilly Water Brewing Co.

Located just off the Indianapolis Cultural Trail, this is the perfect place to stop in for a refreshing pint while you're out walking Fido.

719 Virginia Ave., 317-964-0518,

Scarlet Lane Brewing Co.

Sip on one of their four house beers, or any number of specialties they have on tap, while sitting by their fire pit with your canine companion.

7724 Depot St., McCordsville, 317-336-1590,

Bier Brewery

They are and always have been a dog-friendly brewery. Bring your favorite furball to the tap room and let them rest on the comfy couch and sip out of a Bier Pup Cup. 

5133 E. 65th St., 317-253-2437,

Flat 12 Bierwerks

You'll love their beers as much as your pooch loves the treats available for purchase from the restaurant inside, Hoagies and Hops. Plus, they serve Indy's first dog brew, so your pooch can have a pint as well. 

414 Dorman St., 317-636-2337,

Prepare for your puppy to be greeted with a fair amount of affection from patrons and workers alike as you sit in a comfy chair and drink a Workingman's Pilsner.

Metazoa Brewing Co.

They're not quite open yet, but on April 1 this will be one more spot to take your dog. Complete with a small dog park outside and giving a percentage of their profits to animal charities, this is going to be a beer drinking dog-lover's haven.
