Spotted Dog Brewery

Unfiltered, Unconventional, Unleashed

After fifteen years of brewing experiments and research - such as malting, milling, and roasting grain, recreating historical beer recipes, and brewing in his wife's kitchen - Jerry Grandle decided it was time to take things to a new level. In September 2014, the Spotted Dog Brewery opened, run by Jerry and his wife, Susan. The brewery is named after Ryeleigh, the family's bluetick hound. Our beers have been enjoyed in many states by family and friends, from California to New York. Now that our doors are open to the public, we are proud to be Mesilla's only microbrewery and gladly share our beers with the Mesilla Valley and its visitors.

Our collaboration is a bit of a twist on the typical collaboration brew, as our partners, Ode Brewing, are across the Texas border and our beers can't be shipped there (commercially) and vice versa due to state regulations. We never let something silly like that get in our way though. Instead, we took the same recipe and brewed it twice - once here, and once at Ode! Shipping problem solved. We put our heads together and came up with a Weizenbock, and used the same malt, hops, and yeast (basically, everything but the water) at both locations.
