With each passing year, Cape Cod gets a little more friendlier to dogs. There are plenty of dog friendly places to stay on the cape and there are even a few beaches that allow dogs during the summer on the outer cape. Now, we can add breweries to our dog friendly cape cod list of activities.
In just the last few years there have been a few new breweries that have opened on the cape. That’s in addition to the ones that were already here.
Some of these breweries offer beautiful views of the sand and bay, while others offer fun events throughout the year. Most will offer food either prepared on site or from a food truck.
There are also a couple of vineyards that call the cape their home and welcome guest to sample their wines.
Thankfully, many of these breweries, and vineyards on the Cape, also have dog friendly patios and gardens that will welcome you and your pup.
Join us as we explore your dog friendly options for a drink on the Cape.
