Dog-friendly gastropub the Growler Bites & Brews is now pouring craft beers and dog-themed cocktails on Stone Street. Grub spoke to co-owner Anthony Malone, who told us he's still waiting to get the gas turned on, so it's just drinks for now. Those include growlers of beer, naturally, "to stay or to go," small-producer-focused wines, and dogtails (for humans) including three kinds of Salty Dog, the Old Pal (rye whiskey, Campari, dry vermouth, grapefruit bitters), or a Colorado Bulldog "with draft whiskey floated on top." When food starts, there'll be Mile End hot dogs, local sausages, several different sandwiches, and small plates like bone marrow and fried anchovies. The 2,000-square-foot bi-level space has an upstairs and downstairs bar and is open from 11:30 a.m. to 4 a.m. daily, so head over with Rover to get your drink on. Sadly, pooches can't come inside, but they are welcome on the patio, where soon they'll be offered dog treats and a slurp from a hygienic communal water bowl.
