Barks and Brews Taphouse

Welcome to Barks and Brews Taphouse, West Pinellas’ first “Off-Leash” Dog Park and Taphouse! We are thrilled to bring this fun offering to the communities of Largo, Seminole, Indian Rocks, St. Petersburg, and greater Pinellas County area.

Our 7000 SQ FT facility, with 1500 sq ft of indoor, climate-controlled space, is designed to offer a one-of-a-kind experience where dog lovers can enjoy a huge selection of craft beers and delicious wines while their furry friends play and socialize in a safe, off-leash environment. This dream was brought to life by three buddies who wanted a place in their neighborhood where both humans and dogs could connect and have fun.

We are excited to become a part of your community and provide a space that combines relaxation, socialization, and quality time with your pets. Stay tuned for more information and our official opening date. We can’t wait to welcome you and your canine companions to Barks and Brews Taphouse!

At Barks and Brews Taphouse, we believe that creating a space for dogs and their owners to connect is not just about fun, but a conscious decision to foster an environment where dog owners can spend time with their pets.

Origin Story

After years of grading essays and wrangling middle schoolers, Pat and Chris, two local teachers and passionate dog lovers, decided to trade textbooks for taps. Joining them by bringing his business experience, their friend Rian, helped turn the project into a reality. Combining their love for pups, people, and a good brew, they embarked on a new adventure: opening “Barks and Brews”. Pat, Chris and Rian are excited to create a welcoming space where dog owners can unwind with a cold beer while their furry friends socialize and make new tail-wagging buddies. And with more than 20 taps, you are bound to find something to enjoy. Not a huge dog person? No problem! Our bar area is dog free so come enjoy some great beer, great wine, and great company!!
