Dog-friendly breweries in Austin

Austin is home to dozens of breweries. Most allow canine visitors outside, while some welcome them inside. Here’s where you can bring your furkiddo when grabbing a drink in ATX! 

Beerburg Brewing

Located on a 15-acre site, this family-owned brewery offers an extensive selection of food and drinks. While the taproom is off-limits to canines, there’s a fenced-in dog park where your pup can run a few laps as you sip your beer. Fido is also welcome to join you on the patio and in the beer garden. 

Celis Brewery

If you’re a fan of Belgian-style ales, then you don’t want to miss this brewery in North Austin. There’s plenty of dog-friendly outdoor seating, but leashed pups are allowed in the taproom as well—a great option to have if you’re visiting in the summer and want to escape the heat!

Nomadic Beerworks

Known for being super dog-friendly, this South Austin brewery lets furry patrons inside the taproom and even has a water tap and bowls for them. Visitors say the atmosphere is chill and relaxed, making it a good place to stop by at the end of a busy day or after zoomies at the dog park.


Where to take pics of your dog in Austin

Austin is a beautiful city with no shortage of Insta-worthy locations. Here are some dog-friendly places where you can take “grrreat” pictures of your furry BFF! 



360 Bridge in Austin, Texas

360 Bridge

The Pennybacker Bridge, also known as the 360 Bridge, is one of the most popular bridges in the city. To get to the overlook, take the Lake Austin/360 Bridge Overlook Trail. The hike, though short, is a bit steep and rocky. But once you and Fifi get to the top, you’ll be greeted with breathtaking views of the bridge, the Colorado River, and the Austin skyline. 

Greetings From Austin Mural

Austin is full of many colorful murals, and this vintage postcard-inspired one on Annie Street is arguably the best-known. Located on the side of the Roadhouse Relics gallery, the mural features landmarks like the Congress Avenue Bridge and Barton Springs. Be prepared to wait in a short line if you and your dog go on a weekend.


Mount Bonnell, Austin, Texas

Mount Bonnell

Another spot that offers “puptastic” views of the Colorado River is Mount Bonnell. Located in Covert Park, Mount Bonnell is one of the highest points in Austin, but don’t let that intimidate you. The short hike up is actually easier than the 360 Bridge Overlook Trail as you will be climbing stairs instead of rocks. At the top is a view deck and pavilion where you and your pooch can take a break before heading back down. 

You're My Butter Half Mural

If you’re crazy about your pup, you wouldn’t want to miss this cute mural on E Martin Luther King Jr Blvd. It’s the perfect backdrop to pose in front of with your canine better half. Try to go in the morning so you can avoid the afternoon shadows.

Austin Pets Alive!

Originally founded as an all-volunteer advocacy group in 1997, Austin Pets Alive! (APA!) was reborn as a rescue organization in 2008 and has since saved over 100,000 lives. With a focus on saving animals who are most at risk of euthanasia, the nonprofit organization has helped make Austin the largest no-kill city in America. APA! also has programs to help people and their pets stay together and to support US shelters with high euthanasia rates. 

The animals that APA! rescues include orphaned puppies and kittens, seniors with chronic medical conditions, and those who have been neglected or have contagious illnesses. The nonprofit also saves animals from other parts of Texas and surrounding counties.
