Any brewery that boasts their own pack, “Dogs of Savagewood”, is a must visit for any beer and dog lover. Their dog friendly tasting room offers a chill vibe, cool dogs, and often features Moodkillaz DJs dropping fresh hits. In 2020, Fetch the Sun collaborated with Savagewood to develop a Fetch the Sun beer; an American wheat beer with lemon and lime.

Poochie’s Hooch serves up some of the crispest, most refreshing cider around. Mary Paulson has been making great tasting hard cider since 2015 and opened shop in 2018. Conveniently, the cidery is right next to the entrance of Mission Gorge; a great place for hiking adventures with your pup.

Poochie’s Hooch has a wide variety of hard ciders; from Just Plain Apple and Peach Sparkling to Cinville Apple and Red Hot Candy, you’re sure to discover your new favorite beverage. And, Mary’s ciders are easy on the tummy; only 8 grams of carbs and 8 grams of sugar in a 16oz serving!

To say Mary loves dogs would be an understatement. Her cidery is called Poochie’s Hooch and it features a dog friendly tasting room; and she donates 20% of all profits to Labradors and Friends Dog Rescue.

Mary also gives back to the local small business community by hosting small businesses during her Sip n Shop events in the Cidery. Every third Sunday of the month you can visit the cidery, get some refreshing beverages and shop the fare of many local small businesses.
