Local Breweries Open Their Doors to Dogs, Kids


Story and Photos by Brianna Sullivan

With summer and patio weather just around the corner, I thought it would be fun to feature dog and kid-friendly breweries in the Reno area. All of these businesses allow well-behaved dogs in the locations stated; however, if your dog is causing problems, they reserve the right to ask you to leave!

Pigeon Head Brewery
840 E Fifth St, Reno, NV 89512

They allow dogs on leash in both the brewery and on the patio. They do not have games or activities specifically for children, but they do allow kids and they have snacks, soda, and water.

Great Basin Brewing Co
846 Victorian Ave, Sparks, NV 89431

Great Basin Brewing Co. allows well-behaved dogs only at their Sparks location. Additionally, in the summertime in Sparks, they sometimes have cornhole boards on the outdoor patio as a well as a giant Jenga game. Many times they provide chalk for the kids. There’s also a large grassy area where the kids can run around, jump, and play.

The Depot allows dogs on the patio and offers cornhole and a six-foot-tall Connect Four game during the summer months. Children are always welcome!

Dogs are allowed in the brewery. Currently, due to regulations, children are not allowed in the brewery; however, as they are newly opened, they are looking to expand their services in the future.
