It’s been 13 years since Laughing Dog Brewing got its start in a garage, and since then the happy canine face that graces the company’s cans has seen substantial local expansion, distribution in 14 states and garnered several awards.
Brewery co-owner Lewis Patrick said all that growth has led to a better-than-ever product.
“We strive for excellence and continue to grow every single day,” he said. “With our newest move, we have been able to implement new processes, add equipment and hire brewers that have made Laughing Dog the best it has ever been.”
Celebrate Laughing Dog’s 13th anniversary on Saturday, Aug. 25 at the brewery’s taproom at 805 Schweitzer Plaza Drive from 12-8 p.m. Patrick said the shindig includes a food truck, music from Melissa Forrette from 4-6 p.m., and the tapping of a special 13th anniversary beer at noon. He said there will also be surprise beers on tap and giveaways throughout the day.
