[image-1]Last month Holy City Brewing announced that they would no longer allow dogs onsite. In a Facebook post head brewer Chris Brown said “We love dogs. Most of us have dogs. I have three myself, but over the past six months we have had employees bit five different times by dogs visiting the brewery. The latest incident, which occurred last week, consisted of a guest’s dog biting one of our bartenders in the face. I have to look out for my staff.”

In an email Brown clarified the no-dogs rule, saying, “When everyone is packed in, dogs get nervous or anxious.” Just yesterday COAST Brewing Co. joined HCB in its no more dogs rule, with an Instagram post that reads, “Due to an incident, we unfortunately cannot allow dogs at the brewery anymore. Yes, it stinks, but that’s life. Thanks for your support.” 

While your four-legged friends are no longer allowed at COAST and Holy City, you can still take them to most area breweries. Here’s that list:

Cooper River Brewing Co.
