7 of Our Favorite Dog-Friendly Patios Around Denver!

Dog-Friendly Patios in DenverIt is officially summertime in beautiful dog-friendly Denver! You know it, and your pooch can sense it. This means trips to farmer’s markets (where treats are to be had), dog parks, lakes, hiking, and the occasional brewery(?), oh wait, dogs aren’t allowed anymore...wah wah.

With dogs not allowed in breweries in Denver (although they are still allowed on patios) bringing the pup along can be slightly more of a headache than it used to be. However, fear not, because we have compiled a list of some of the most dog-friendly patios in Denver. Take your pup to one of these spots without worrying about getting kicked out. (Oh and slip him one of our spent-grain treats while you’re there...just so he’s not missing out on the fun!)
