I really like the casual atmosphere of Laughing Dog. It's beer is great, snacks are fresh and it's dog friendly as well . What more can you ask for for a mid day adventure

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 the 6% state sales tax seperately in addition to the standard price, versus including it...

Also children are now allowed...So it went from a great place to have a beer, visit with adult friends and their dogs to...well, not the same. I guess you... More

They have a great selection of beer to satisfy any taste, from blonde/light to stouts. Very friendly atmosphere as well. And yes, dogs are allowed which is awesome!! We make it a point to visit Laughing when we are in Sandpoint.

Actually, the brewery is located on the outskirts of Sandpoint in Ponderay just off US95. They have a tasting room which opens at 11AM (12 on Sunday). Great bartenders and an offering of many styles of ales. Checking out the awards on the wall you know this is the place for beer! They do not serve food but they have... More
