Our Mission

We have two missions at Black Dog Beer Shop. One is to help those who want to get into craft beer but might feel a little intimidated. Our knowledgeable staff can help you on your journey and create custom paths for you to explore. Our second mission is to be a place for beer nerds. The team is comprised of beer nerds. We like to drink and talk about beer. We’re also promiscuous beer drinkers who love to try new things. Your passion is our passion, and we’ve love to chat about beer. We strive to be part of the community by providing great beer. So whether you find us at the shop or your local brewery, stop by and say hi.

Ash, the black dog

The black dog in Black Dog Beer Shop is Ash. He’s a year and a half old and over 80 lbs. He may look scary, but he’s super playful with tons of energy and is excellent with kids. Ash is also a big fan of ice, eating my shoes, and messing up my bed. When he gets mad that I’m busy, he tosses my sheets and pillows. Some of his favorite chew toys include steel, wood, and iron. Please don’t leave your beer unattended around him, or he’ll steal it! You may see him in the shop from time to time.

I’m a disabled Marine Veteran who currently works in the software development industry as a senior project manager. My passion for beer started years ago when I first discovered the Belgium beer Delirium Tremens. From there, my tastes exploded, and I’ve had well over 600 unique beers. I wanted to open my craft beer store focused on local craft beers to fix my frustration of wine taking up all the shelving. Originally from Indiana, I’ve lived on the east coast for the last 16 years in North Carolina, Massachusetts, and Virginia. Outside of beer, my passion includes cars, Formula 1, and the NFL.

Well, that’s all about us. Come by and check us out!
