There’s truth in advertising at this breezy neighborhood beer bar (formerly Lenora’s Way, double-formerly Wells Ales)—dogs are always welcome, leashes are optional, and there’s even a bubble-gum machine in the corner that dispenses dog treats for free. There’s plenty on hand for the humans as well, including a small deck in the front, a shuffleboard table, and a sweet back deck featuring wooden tables, low-hanging trees, and high, city-concealing fences. Oh, and twenty beers on tap—including the likes of Dogfish Head, Ommegang, Troegs, and Reissdorf—ten more bottled options, and a cask-beer engine. The staff is beer-knowledgeable and willing to give up samples if you’re really torn. There are bar snacks served, but you can also bring your own eats, and as far as that goes, there’s plenty of solid options on this stretch of Bedford Ave. And if you happen to meet a friendly bear of a man named Moonshine behind the bar, ask him to chug a pint—he’ll do it as quick as you can down a shot.
