But there are fewer places for humans and dogs to come together, sip a cold beverage and relax — but they were able to do all three at this weekend’s dog parade.
Dog owners and their furry companions gathered at Beer Study on Sunday afternoon for what owner JD Schlick called a “dog parade.”
After meeting at the beer shop, the crowd walked down East Main Street to Steel String Craft Brewery, where owners could enjoy a pint of seasonal brew with their four-legged friends at their feet.
“We wanted to do something that our customers would enjoy,” Schlick said in an email.
“Everyone seems to be doing jogging clubs, so we just thought, let’s do dog walks.”
Will Isley, the brew czar of Steel String Craft Brewery, said he thought it would be fun to get area dog lovers together for the event.
“We thought it would be a fun way to interact between two businesses,” he said.
Beer Study is completely dog friendly, meaning dogs can enter the building. Steel String Craft Brewery has a dog-friendly patio.
