Casual dining chain Lazy Dog Restaurant & Bar in August added two new house beers to its lineup. Bonita, Bonita Mountain Style Pale Ale (5.5% ABV) is a juicy pale ale with hints of citrus and a smooth finish, the company says, and Old Pal White Ale (5.4% ABV) is mildly sweet, crisp and refreshing.
Most Lazy Dog locations offer house beers in 64-oz. growlers or 32-oz. growlers, and as of Aug. 25, select house beers will be available in 4-packs for take-out. The array of house beers offered also includes:
Huckleberry Haze IPA-refreshing notes of huckleberry, tropical fruit, citrus, and hints of strawberry.
Liquid Blanket IPA –hints of flavorful citrus and pine with a medium malt build.
Sunspanked Red Ale– a medium-bodied, slightly toasty Irish-style red ale.
Whoa Nellie Lager – easy-drinking, Mexican-style lager.
Ankle Buster Blonde – clean and refreshing ale with just the right touch of sweetness.
Both Bonita, Bonita Mountain Style Pale Ale and Old Pal White Ale are brewed by Melvin Brewing, which started in Jackson, WY. That’s fitting, as Lazy Dog founder/CEO Chris Simms drew inspiration for the restaurant’s concept from the Rocky Mountain lifestyle.
Founded in 2003; the Costa Mesa, CA-based chain now operates 39 locations throughout California, Colorado, Georgia, Illinois, Nevada, Virginia and Texas, with more on the way. Lazy Dog specializes in house beers, local brew offerings and handcrafted cocktails that complement its elevated comfort foods served in a rustic social setting. Lazy Dog patios are open for outdoor dining; due to COVID-19, in-restaurant dining currently varies by location, and food and drinks are available for take-out and delivery.
