Best Place to Drink With Your Dog

Nothing beats bringing your pooch along to your favorite local bars. And thankfully, the Chippewa Valley is filled with places for dog moms and dads to get a brew with their pup!  Readers’ favorite place to lap down a beer with their dogs is The Brewing Projekt (1807 N. Oxford Ave., Eau Claire). A pandemic-friendly pick, Safer at Home: My Backyard, takes second – pick up some local beers, and enjoy! Third is Lazy Monk Brewing (97 W. Madison St., Eau Claire), where doggos can relax on the patio and maybe even meet the brewery dogs, Fred and George. Prost! –Natalie Rosenkranz
