With summer (the best time of year) quickly approaching, sitting outside and having an ice cold beer is one of the best ways to spend an afternoon.

Now if you're a dog owner, you know one of the worst feelings is leaving your dog at home while you go out and do something. Having two furry friends of my own I know this feeling first-hand when I leave them.

According to The Journal News, there are 7 breweries in the Hudson Valley where you can enjoy a beer and bring your furry friend with you. Check out the list:
