Ferris’ Day Off: Billsburg Brewery and The Hungry Pug

HISTORIC TRIANGLE — Part beagle, part foxhound and all attitude, Ferris Bueller (no, not THAT Bueller but, definitely named after the ’80s icon) is a one-year-old pup who loves to head out on adventures and explore new places and meet people.

Arrive by car, bike or boat, but just get to Billsburg Brewery — a Ferris-favorite hangout!
Located by the James City County Marina, Billsburg Brewery is close to the Jamestown Settlement, beach and ferry.
This establishment boasts huge outdoor spaces, perfect for canine companions, with picnic tables, a covered gazebo, and a deck that overlooks the marina in addition to the indoor taproom.
It is the perfect spot to sit and enjoy a cold brew or a fruity slushie and take in the sights.
This busy brewery is known for events, in addition to its great beverages. Every Tuesday night you can join its running or biking clubs, and it hosts live music and trivia weekly. This space also plays host to a cornhole league.

On Saturday, Sept. 30, the brewery is hosting ‘OKTOBERFEST 2023,’ with beer, food and live music. Tickets are required.

This super dog-friendly brewery even has its very own dog-friendly food truck on sight, The Hungry Pug. Specializing in cheese, the Hungry Pug is on-site every day.

The Hungry Pug will celebrate its 4th annual PUBTOBERFEST on Oct. 1 from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. There will be a dog costume contest, a pug race, a dog ice cream eating contest and live music with a portion of the food sales that day being donated to Pugs U Gotta Save.

Be sure to stop in at Billsburg Brewery with your dog, there are always several canine companions to meet. And remember, if you see Ferris stop by and say hi!

Happen to spot Ferris out on an adventure? Come say hello! If you have a dog-friendly suggestion you would like Ferris to consider covering or visiting, please email his mom. Hounds are not very good at responding.
