Brewing Great Beer Since 2005

At Laughing Dog Brewing, what began with a dream for brews with more hops has turned into an insatiable desire to craft beers of all flavors, with a focus on quality, purity, and fun. Today, Laughing Dog Brewing has brewed over 15 distinct beers, including Huckleberry Cream Ale and our award-winning IPA’s and Stouts. But despite our success and growth, our motto remains the same as the day we started, to create… “Fetchingly Good Beer”!

Fetchingly Good Beer!


The laughing Yellow Lab that appears on all of our brews, our logo, and other items is Ben. His loyal and relaxed attitude, appetite for quality food, and constant desire for walks to complete his healthy lifestyle has served as the perfect inspiration for all our brews at Laughing Dog Brewing.  His spirit continues to live on at the brewery after his passing in 2016.

Focused on Quality and Purity

One thing we take very seriously at Laughing Dog Brewing is the quality, consistency and purity of our beers. Our goal is to make your experience the same from concept to tap, can or bottle, in any state that we distribute.

We brew our Beer on a fifteen barrel brew-house using local clean and pure water, which is ideal for brewing smooth clean ales. With few exceptions we use only Water, Barley, Hops and Yeast in our beer. This simple and focused approach has allowed us to make beers that are fresh, smooth, rich, and full of flavors.
