Brewery Dog Max: How this Big Dog found his way to the Suds

Maureen, Ryan & Max (Saint Bernard/2), Mount Olive, North Carolina

meet maureen, ryan and maxWe came across Max by chance after he was put up for adoption on Facebook. It was there my husband saw his photo and the post that said he would be brought to the pound in 24 hours if no one took him. All because someone didn’t realize how big he was going to get.

The next day, Max appeared in our lives (much to my surprise) as a one-year old 130 pound foster puppy. We had no plans to adopt a dog a month after getting married, even though we both had been wanting one, because we thought we had too much going on. But after three days, we both knew deep down there was no way this loveable goof ball was going anywhere else —he’d already made a mark on our hearts.

Fast forward a year to 2020 and we have no idea what we’d do without him. Max loves our two cats, has been accepted by both sets of parents as their “grand dog” and is our Official Brewery Dog at R & R Brewing. He greets all of our customers, gets treats from the food trucks and brings a smile to so many people — so much so that some people stop in just to say hi to him. Max is such a good dog who is loved my many, and we could not have asked for a better addition to our family.

Stop by to meet Max next time you're in Mount Olive, and have a beer or two. Cheers Max! @max_thebrewerysaint @rr_brewing
