Since 2005 Laughing Dog Brewing has brewed over 15 distinct beers, including seasonals like our Fresh Hop Pale and Cold Nose Winter Ale, and our award-winning IPA’s and Stouts.
Devil Dog Imperial IPA
An all out assault on the senses. Devil Dog is an Imperial IPA with a floral / citrus hop aroma and flavor. This beer ages well and will take on some barley wine characteristics with time. Available in May in 22oz. bottles and kegs.
Sneaky Pete is a blend of five hop types: Simcoe, Glacier, Centennial, Vanguard and Hallertauer, with Simcoe playing the dominate role at 30%. In addition, three separate malts were used: Honey Malt, Rye Malt, and Munich Malt. The brew has a copious aroma of white grapefruit, citrus overtones, a complex rich middle and long flavors in the finish; a real beauty. Finished with wild clover honey. 89 IBU’s, 10% ABV
India Pale Ale IPA
Our I.P.A. is a result of our profound love of hops and big, bold brews. A combination of Cluster, Cascade, Citra and Simcoe hops create a piney, citrus aroma and flavor. Available year-round in 12oz. bottles and kegs
Rocket Dog Rye I.P.A.
Cascade, Cluster and Simcoe hops marry perfectly with rye malt to create this unique and crisp Rye I.P.A. “Rocket Dog to save the day!” This is the local’s tap room favorite. Available year-round in 22oz. bottles and kegs.
We brew our Pale Ale “Big, Bold and Hoppy” with plenty of Cascade hops lending a floral / citrus aroma and flavor complimented with a balanced malt backbone. Available yearround in 12oz. bottles and kegs.
Anubis Imperial Coffee Porter
A complex Imperial Coffee Porter made with Evans Brothers cold-pressed coffee. Subtle chocolate, and coffee notes are balanced by black malt bitterness and malt sweetness. Available year-round in 22oz. bottles and kegs.
Huckleberry Cream Ale
We begin with slight variations on our traditional Cream Ale recipe. Real huckleberries are added during the last minutes of the boil to lend a subtle berry aroma and flavor. Available as a seasonal release in April in 12oz. bottles and kegs.
This is a Classic American Pilsner brewed for Sandpoint’s 219 Lounge. The aroma is grainy with some corn, color is light straw with brilliant clarity. Light malt notes are balanced with a very subtle Willamette hop presence. Available in kegs.
Fresh Hop Pale
Our award winning Fresh Hop Pale is brewed once a year after hop harvest. The addition of freshly harvested hops impart a grassy hop aroma and flavor. We brew only 60 barrels per year. Available at the end of September in kegs only.
Laughing Dog CSB- ESB (Extra Strong/Special Bitter)
CSB – How dogs say hello.
When Ben the laughing dog was much younger, he developed a habit of sticking his nose in people’s crotches to check them out and say Hello. One of his favorite people to do this to coined the term CSB (or, “Crotch Sniffing Bastard”) and so the seed was planted for the name of this beer. A British style ESB with an Laughing Dog twist, it is crisp but malty and at the same time somewhat playful, it is a great beer to have while out sniffing around, or if you are stuck at home on the short leash for maybe sniffing in the wrong places.
Available in 5.16 Gallon Keg and 15.5 gallon keg
Alpha Dog Imperial IPA
Alpha Dog — Ahead Of The Pack
A True Hop Bomb Brewed plenty of Columbus and Mt Hood Hops for a Piney hop character. Premium Pale, Honey and Munich Malt make this beer a little less malty but packing plenty of hop punch.
Dogzilla Black IPA
Bottled since 2006, Dogzilla takes a traditional I.P.A. and adds a black malt twist. Simcoe, Mt. Hood and Cascade hops
weave complex hop aroma and flavor with a munich and black malt backbone. Available year round in 22oz. bottles, and kegs.
This year’s Dogfather Imperial Stout will all be aged in charred bourbon barrels. Seven malt varieties and subtle hop additions give it a complex flavor profile. Available in November in 22oz. bottles and kegs.

Purebred A.P.A. Citra
