AleSmith Brewing Co.
The cozier of the office park breweries, AleSmith doesn’t just let dogs in, it also keeps the owner’s adorably bear-like Newfoundland, Jake, by the front door to welcome patrons. 9368 Cabot Drive

Blind Lady Ale House
The busy nightspot in Normal Heights can be a family-friendly destination in earlier hours, thanks to a pizza-heavy menu, in-house coloring books and crayons, and non-alcoholic drinks, like Margo’s Bark Root Beer, which benefits L.A. animal shelters. 3416 Adams Avenue

Coronado Brewing Co.
Every Tuesday from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m., kids eat free with the purchase of a $10 entrée and beverage. Bonus: This island microbrewery also offers some balloon art styling. 170 Orange Avenue

Green Flash Brewing Co.
Dogs are allowed inside the popular brewery, but Green Flash also has fake grass outside to make them feel right at home. 6550 Mira Mesa Boulevard

Yappy Hour at the Del
Starting May 4, dogs and cats are welcome on Hotel Del Coronado’s Sun Deck (Sundays from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m.). Pets get kibble and Evian; parents can order the following craft beers: Stone IPA, Karl Strauss Red Trolley, and Coronado Brewing’s Coronado Golden. Sorry, no price specials!

Pizza Port
San Diego’s pizza institution serves up craft beer, pizza, and arcade games for the whole family. Locations in Point Loma, Solana Beach, Carlsbad, and Bressi Ranch

Societe Brewing Company
Both dogs and little ones are allowed into this spacious IPA-focused brewery in Kearny Mesa. 8262 Clairemont Mesa Boulevard

Station Tavern & Burgers
Kids will love the burgers, but they’ll really love the playground with a mini trolley and doodle-ready chalkboards at this South Park eatery. Plus, the whole space is fenced in to keep them safe while you imbibe. 2204 Fern Street

Stone Brewing Co.
The enormous Liberty Station location includes a kid’s menu, outdoor bocce ball courts, and an Astroturf field where Stone screens movies during summer family nights. 2816 Historic Decatur Road

Thorn Street Brewery
The kid- and pooch-friendly spot in North Park is stocked with games and children’s books and welcomes four-legged friends to the front bar as well as the spacious back room. 3176 Thorn Street

Waypoint Public
The new North Park brewpub offers a designated play area along with a kids’ menu. 3794 30th Street
