There are many things our trip has been full of—–beauty, new experiences, friendly people, and beer! Dan has sampled more beer in the last three weeks than he’s drank in all of 2011! No one has twisted his arm though! He’s been quite willing to sample the local brews.
This beer sampling trip takes him to Laughing Dog Brewery in Sandpoint. Laughing Dog is about celebrate its 6th anniversary in August. The brewery produces Pilsners, Stouts, IPAs and more.
The laughing dog on its label actually does exist. Ben, the golden retriever, serves as an inspiration to its owners Michelle Douglass and Fred Colby. I think Dan was inspired too!
