Consider what we’re about to say a massive compliment, as well as something of a warning:


IF YOU HATE DOGS, YOU’LL HATE THIS PLACE… But that’s OK as you’re probably a terrible person.

We ain’t kidding though—this might as well be a dog park that allowed a few well-meaning humans to build a beer-drinking place inside it.

And that’s what makes it so wonderful.

You know that dream all dog-lovers have about moving to the mountains and adopting every single dog we can find and being covered in hair and slobber and happily mauled every time you go outside? But, you know… a little drunk the whole time?

That’s Barrel.

It’s Dogs Gone Wild and it’s Humans Gone Tiny Home With Beer In It.

Here’s the general lay of the land:

Outside: A few open acres for Fido to roam, food trucks, shuffleboard, bearded manly men and the active-attired women who love them.

Inside: Exposed wood, more than 30 craft beers on tap, live music during prime time.

We could go on and on, but if you’re not already on your way by now, then perhaps you should get a cat.
