Yes Billy Goat Gruffs is okay with dogs. But limited menu, but many beers.

Steve.. I can dog sit any time. We can hang out by any eatery and wait for you to eat. Or if the dog is okay with a drive while you eat... or a walk to the brewery? They have a patio.

And yes, Dobermans rule

Thanx Brian!

We have a pet stroller, but may need to research this option.

So I believe everyone recieved the official FJ summit agenda today, if not I attached a copy below. The "night in Ouray" is set to begin at 6:30 on Friday evening, so I will be showing up at the Ourayle right around that time to start grilling some bugers, brats, hot dogs, etc. If anybody has anything else they would rather throw on the grill or any side dishes, just bring it and we can take care of it, please do not feel obligated to bring anything though! I am planning on grilling most of the night (probably until 9 or so) so no need to show up right at 6:30 if you have other plans such as hot springs, hiking, etc.

By the way, the free pint glasses (presented by Metal Tech) that are being giving away at the Western Hotel that night is located directly across from Hutches so that will work out very nicely!

Can't wait to see everybody, let me know if you all have any questions :cheers:
I forget if I already posted this anywhere on here, but...
It was nice to meet you that night in the Ourayle House on Independence weekend, Jeff. I only wish I had known it was you on the other end of the bar sooner.

We'll see you soon (checking into the Ouray Hotel on Friday, the 16th).


...THAT IS SOME OF THE BEST BEER I'VE EVER HAD!!! ...They go down real good...
Indeed. There are three main reasons.....1) it's actually good beer to begin with, 2) he doesn't over-do-it with the carbonation......I usually stir my beer with a knife when I get a glass (cause I can't stand ingesting all those bubbles), but Hutch's beer seems fine, and 3) it's actually good beer to begin with :cheers:

I usually only drink dark beers (porter, stout, black ale, etc). He has a very tasty stout on tap right now......well, at least he did last weekend....hope he still has it next week.

Jeff,

Can you please post places in town (eating and drinking) that are dog friendly. We will have our 10 pound four legged furry son with us and would like to know where he is welcome. Last year there were many dogs and I am sure those that are returning would appreciate the info as well.

I called the Chamber of Commerce and they said Billy Goats was since they had an outside patio/beer garden. They could not (or would not) comment on other locations since they were not members of the Chamber.

Thanx :cheers:
Ourayle House seems dog friendly.....there's usually one walking around in there, and I'm sure you can tie it up outside near the patio.

I've seen dogs at some of the other places with outside seating too, like the aforementioned Billy Goat Gruff's Bier Garten, Buen Tiempo (Mexican), O'Brien's Pub and the Gold Belt (pizza, etc), but I have no idea what their official policy is at any of these places. Might be a good idea to call around to some of them and find out.

Steve (repeat from the dog/pet thread),
please feel free to 'take over' that thread if you want. I figured that particular info was worthy enough to have a thread dedicated all to it self.

I also created it in the general Summit section, because it will be helpful from year to year.

Maybe add the link to your signature during the days leading up to the Summit if you want as well.

It was great meeting you too Steven and definitely looking forward to spending some time with all of you on the 23rd!

Some other suggestions on pet-friendly places to eat... Das Taco, Maggie’s Kitchen, the Timberline Deli and Café Ouray. Ouray loves their dogs so basically anywhere you can find with outdoor seating, nobody is going to have a problem with it! I believe the owner of Billy Goat Gruff’s has a Doberman so they are most definitely welcome there!!!

Hutch at the Ourayle isn’t usually thrilled when people bring their dogs, but as you said he has a spot right outside where you can tie them up and if he’s in a good mood maybe bring them on the patio outside.

Hope you guys have arrived safely in Ouray and for those still travelling, safe cruisin for the remainder of your trip!

As a reminder I will be grilling hamburgers, hot dogs, and chicken on Friday night starting at about 7:00 pm. I had no idea how much meat to get so I will just make everything throughout the evening until it's gone, so try to get there in decent time so you don't miss out.

You are all welcome to bring some side dishes or anything else you would like to throw on the grill, if not that is totally cool too!! Have fun on your trail runs and see you soon :cheers:

there are a few shots of us hanging out at Ourayle House that Friday night HERE, but I totally forgot to get a pic of Jeff....sorry buddy.

Thanks again. It was definitely a lot of fun getting to meet you this summer and hang out, play darts, etc. Enjoy :cheers:
