Brewed up in October of 2010, Black Dog stared with a beer kit, some used beer bottles, and a small pot. It’s grown a lot since then, becoming a registered LLC in 2013. We now have several fermentors, carboys for aging and clearing, kegs, taps, and even home-grown hops. We’ve come a long way since our first kit, and we don’t plan on stopping anytime soon.
Black Dog is named in honor of an old friend, Brandi, who was a black lab. If you take a look at our logo, you’ll notice the “o” in dog is a paw print–her paw print.
Currently, Black Dog is made up of two people- Chris and Tim, two brothers from Metuchen, NJ. We also have a lot of family and friends who help us out, mainly when it comes to taste testing.
Please note: As of now, we are not professional brewers, and our beer is not available for purchase (yet).
