River Dog Brewing Co.

Over the July 4th holiday weekend, we had the pleasure of visiting the first local brewing company in the area, River Dog Brewing Co. It was only about an 8 minute drive from our, and offers tastings and free tours. We could definitely be in trouble. My husband and I love buying local, and supporting local businesses, and when its a brewing company that just motivates us even more to support them:)

 

The just opened in May 2013, and have been brewing since 2012. A few locals got together and decided to try Craft beers. Now they ship their beers to local distributes all across the state. They are moving into Georgia soon, and I am sure will reach out to even more states in the coming years.

We have tried their beers at many local restaurants, but they had a few on tap that were new to us, so we decided to get a few samplers before ordering pints:)

My favorite was the Coastal Wit. Nice, refreshing and light.

 

The partners, offered to take us on a tour of the facility. We have been on a few brewery tours, and everyone company does it differently. This company found its name from their love of dogs. They had the most adorable pictures of their dogs in the tasting room for display! Dog lovers are truly the best!

A new trend in brewing craft beers is letting them age in wine barrels. I can't wait to try these!

  1. You look great, Ashley! As for this post’s topic, when you guys finally visit you will have to try these brews: Northern Lights Amber (Moose’s Tooth Brewing in Anchorage), Alaskan Summer Ale (Alaskan Brewing Company in Juneau), and Single Engine Red (Denali Brewing Company in Talkeetna). If you’re game, you can also try a Midnight Sun Oosik at Humpy’s in Anchorage. (Ask Heater about that one.) Cheers!
