Happy Hour with the Pups

by Meghann on January 17, 2010

It was bring your dog to the tap room day at the Orlando Brewing Company.

Dogs? Beer? An organic local brewery? Count Caitlin and I in! ๐Ÿ˜‰

When Caitlin first mentioned that Orlando Brewing Company allows dogs in the tap room on Sundays I knew it would be a perfecto location for us to play catch up. I haven’t had a chance to hang out with Caitlin since before the marathon and I missed her face!

I also missed James’ face. We were celebrating his 4th birthday and he was very happy to play tag along.

Maddie enjoyed her night out as well.

There was just too many things for her to see and do, she couldn’t control herself. ๐Ÿ™‚

This was actually my first trip to the Orlando Brewing Company. It is an organic brewery that prides itself on fresh local beer.

The tap room is basically the brewery’s bar where people can come together to enjoy a fresh beer from the brewery.

They even have local bands.

Caitlin got up and joined them on the tambourine for a song.

The two of us couldn’t decide what to order, so we decided to split a sampler.

I can’t remember exactly which ones I tried, but I will tell you I didn’t have a bad thing to say about any of them. ๐Ÿ˜‰

A party was celebrating a birthday at the other end of room and offered us pieces of cake.

I enjoyed a few bites of my piece of carrot cake, while Caitlin shared hers with James.

We told James the cake was in honor of his birthday. ๐Ÿ˜‰

By the time I got home I was hungry for real food.

I made a frozen salmon burger for dinner and topped it with some sprouts and tomato.

On the side I made roasted asparagus.

I really wanted Ice Cream after dinner, so I made a small bowl of Egg Nog Ice Cream topped with an Almond Butter cookie from earlier.

I don’t know if I had too many sweets or what, but I feel really icky. My stomach is full and bloated. Yuck!

I’m hoping a good night’ sleep will make it feel better.

Good Night!!

We have a brewery like that (Sweetwater) where you can bring your dog. I think my dog would be way overstimulated though.

I love beer samplers! My dog wouldn’t be nice at an event like that – he doesn’t like strangers at all!

I really wanted eggnog ice cream this season, but I guess it wasn’t meant to be. They only sold it in the big tubs, and there’s just no way I could buy that and not gain like 10 pounds! I love your pup. Adorable.

Maybe it’s all the beer bubbles and stuff like that?
That looks like such a cute night out so I’m sure it was worth the ickiness ๐Ÿ™‚ Sleep well!

Beer sampler = yuuuum. I love when breweries do them–you get to try the most surprising things.
