Brewing Up Memories: Celebrating 5 Years of Lazy Dog Beer Club
Our story about Lazy Dog Beer Club starts with a simple hangout between Chris Simms and Gabe Caliendo, two of our founders. They were enjoying a cold brew and chatting away. These two beer enthusiasts shared a deep-rooted passion for craft beer, and as they sat together, savoring one of Gabe's delicious home brews, they kicked off discussions about how craft beer would play a role in our restaurant concept.
Little did they know that their initial discussion about beer would pave the way for something extraordinary. As the craft beer revolution picked up, they found themselves at the forefront of a thrilling new trend. Craft beer was everywhere, and everyone wanted it. To meet this demand, we teamed up with small and mid-size breweries to brew our unique house beers, dabbled in some cool collaborations, and even entered these brews into competitions over the years.
While we were connecting with beer lovers in the restaurant, we wanted to find new ways to extend our passion within the craft beer world. In 2018, the idea of Lazy Dog Beer Club was born. It was a way to give our guests the opportunity to taste and bring home unique styles from small breweries across the country. We wanted to do things differently from other beer clubs out there by making it unique through storytelling with themed releases, as well as by offering unique recipes from awesome partners. From the beer styles to the themed names, artwork and packaging, it's all part of a story that makes our Beer Club one-of-a-kind. Plus, there are some awesome in-restaurant perks, too. Here's a snapshot of our story and relentless pursuit of doing rad things in the ever-evolving world of craft beer:
