Dogs are allowed to hang with their owners at this brewpub patio

Jul 13 2020, 9:23 am

Patios are finally open, Toronto, but your furry friend has gotten so used to hanging out with you 24/7 while you’ve been stuck at home.

While the draw to sunny tables with draught beer is strong, those puppy-dog eyes begging you not to leave might be stronger. Lucky for you, one local brewery has a solution.

Black Lab Brewing is a Toronto brewpub that offers patio seating not only for humans, but for their furry comrades, too.

Open seven days a week from noon to 9 pm, the spot’s beer garden is officially open with safety measures in place, and dogs are allowed so long as they’re on a six-foot leash.

Here are some rules to be aware of if you plan to visit:

  • Order at the Bottle Shop counter (mask required indoors) ⁣⁣
  • No tabs, samples or flights  ⁣⁣
  • Max groups of six ⁣⁣
  • Provide contact information for one person per group ⁣⁣
  • Cash is not accepted at this time ⁣⁣
  • Stay home if you are unwell ⁣⁣

In addition to dogs being welcome, outside food is also permitted, which means homemade sammies or a slice from nearby Descendant Pizza is a go.

The spot currently has a 90-minute time limit in place which, to us, sounds like ample time to enjoy a few while your four-legged BFF soaks up the sun.
