Is Beer food? Denver says yes, therefore no Dogs allowed.

The City of Denver health department will be cracking down on local Breweries, reaffirming the decision that Beer is classified as food. Per existing rules, Dogs may not occupy the same public space in which food is served.

An incident this week at Prost Brewing Company has reignited discussion about the technicality of the laws that are currently in place, and whether or not they are justified.

For the time being, establishments may continue to allow Dogs on their patios. If they choose to do so they are only permitted to serve food inside.
