Our dog Murphy loved the taproom. Staff was friendly and beer was delicious. Recommend Rocket dog Ale. Food was good and reasonably priced. This taproom made me want to to move to Sandpoint Idaho.

It's true, Laughing Dog has changed! The beer is as great as always, so that's the most important part Not to have changed. The first change last winter, that I was not in favor of, was the raising of the beer prices, via adding on...More
