Leader of the Pack
Founder and brew master Gretchen Schmidhausler has been brewing professionally in NJ since 1996. As the first female brew master in in New Jersey, she’s earned a reputation for creating all sorts of fresh, flavorful beers. She’s also earned three medals from the Great American Beer Festival.
In 2014, she took her passion for traditional English and German ales and opened Little Dog Brewing Company. Both the spirit of the brewery and the logo were directly inspired by her own little dog, Quincy. This resilient Basenji’s adorable likeness is captured on every can and painted on the walls of the brewery.
Little Dogs, Big Flavor
All little dog breeds prove that big things come in small packages. They have lots life and energy and make everyone feel more social. That’s the kind of experience you’ll get from their beers too. Their tap list features expertly crafted English and German style beers. You can try them all on a flight or get a can or pint of your favorite style.
Their signature brew is the Gesundheit. It’s a malty German Altbier. For something light, try the Duck Boy Pale Ale. This American pale ale is loaded with flavor thanks to its Cascade hops. Drinkers interested in something smooth and dark will love the Seafarer’s Stout. It’s an authentic Irish stout with coffee notes.
Come, Sit, Stay, Drink
