Top secret contracts have gagged owners and employees from discussing recent renovations to the Dog and Pony Alehouse in Renton. I signed no such agreement.
What I can tell you is; I drove down to have a beer there the other evening to find film crews blocking the entrance to the place. “Come back tomorrow,” they said. Well, I came back today and “Wow!”
If you have been to the Dog and Pony before, you know how different it looks now. It was basically this okay bar, with a fantastic rotating selection of 32 craft beers. Oh, brewdog Bruce says to say nice things about the patio where he gets to sit with me in the summer.
Apparently, the D&P renovation will be featured on some TV show in February. Until that time, owner, Kristen Fisher, and crew are supposed to be hush, hush, and could not give me any details yet.
As you can see, it is really nice. Same great beers and has that new wood and paint smell. Watch for more changes in the menu and decor in coming months.
