Doggo can’t hold his licker? Well at these Denver distilleries, he doesn’t have to! Bless staff and patrons alike with your pup’s presence while you enjoy an expertly crafted cocktail or two at one of our favorite dog-lovin’ distilleries.

Pandemic puppers: in the yikes that is 2020, we doo always recommend calling ahead! Please drink responsibly.

1. 12 Point Distillery

With an impressive lineup of small-batch spirits and handcrafted liqueurs to keep you occupied while your pup gets plenty of pats, Lafayette’s 12 Point Distillery is a must-sniff. Enjoy games and delicious cocktails as your dog makes her appearance either on the patio or inside the tasting room. Celebrities, areweright?

2. Ironton Distillery & Crafthouse

Your dog is full of dreams. And chief among them? The honor of being a distillery dog. Make his dreams come true at Ironton, where you’ll find a huge patio, spacious bar, and a walk-up order window so you can continue to wittily banter with your pal without interruption.

3. Rising Sun Distillery

Nobody appreciates a nice day (or a crappy one, tbh) like a dog. And Rising Sun knows how to make one even nicer: weather permitting, the garage door to the dog-friendly lounge opens. Craft spirits, VIP tours, cocktail classes, AND a dog-friendly lounge? Turn up, pups.

4. Rocker Spirits

Featuring award-winning spirits, this micro-distillery’ll be a hit with everypawdy. The atmosphere is very welcoming, and the pup-loving staff are known to dole out some 13/10 pats. Be sure to try the famous Old Fashioned (but sorry to any puppers who may be reading—you have to be 21).

5. The Block Distilling Co

Described as *super* dog-friendly inside and out, your lil bud is definitely gonna wanna hit The Block. With a resident distillery dog serving as hostess with the mostess (because how could she not), friendly staff, and a cool vibe, your pup may have a hard time dragging you home. Be sure to check out the 225 Club, which’ll get you exclusive discounts and quarterly bottle releases not available to just anypuppy.
