Ash, the black dog

This is Ash, the black dog in Black Dog Beer Shop. He’s 16 months old and over 80 lbs. He may look scary but he’s super playful with tons of energy and is great 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. Don’t leave your beer unattended around him, he’ll definitely 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 Delirium Tremens. From there my tases exploded and I’ve had well over 600 unique beers. I wanted to open my own 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!
