As the weather begins to heat up, Grizzly Peak Brewing Co. invites both human and canine guests to enjoy a meal on its open-air patio in the heart of downtown Ann Arbor. Located on the corner of West Washington and Ashley streets, the Ann Arbor mainstay has created a gourmet dog menu with options even the pickiest pup will enjoy.
Stacy Baird, proud dog mom and Grizzly Peak general manager, created the Pups on the Patio menu, inspired by her beloved dog Shandy, a 7-year-old Chug – Chihuahua and Pug mix. Prior to joining the Grizzly Peak team, Baird worked at a pet-friendly hotel with a dog menu, and she is thrilled to bring the idea to Ann Arbor.

“Ann Arbor is full of dog lovers like me. Everywhere you go, you’re likely to see a pup walking down the street,” Baird said. “The community embraced the concept last summer, so we’ve decided to revamp the menu and bring it back for another summer of dog-centric fun.”

The Shandy-approved menu is doggone good, with options like the Pup Patty, a cheeseburger patty on a house bun; the Skinny Dog, a choice of salmon and chicken over rice; the Top Dog, hanger steak slices over potatoes; Grizzly Peak’s Poochy Cream, vanilla ice cream topped with peanut butter sauce and a dog treat and more tasty treats. As an added bonus, doggie diners ordering from Pups on the Patio can get their paws on a complimentary Grizzly Peak dish to take home.

A portion of the proceeds from the Pups on the Patio menu will be donated to the Humane Society of Huron Valley, a local animal shelter where Baird spends her free time volunteering.

The brew-pubs’s canine advocacy doesn’t stop with its unique menu either. In partnership with the Humane Society of Huron Valley, Grizzly Peak is proud to host Hops and Adopt, a multi-event adoption effort introducing patrons to local four-legged friends who are looking for a good home. Grizzly Peak will award complimentary Mug Club memberships to anyone who adopts a pet during the June 10 event.

Grizzly Peak Brewing Co. is located at 120 W. Washington in Ann Arbor. Grizzly Peak is open 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 11 a.m. to midnight Friday and Saturday. Grizzly Peak also offers brunch from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. every Sunday. For more information, call 734-741-7325.
