Common Space Brewery is a super dog-friendly spot located in Hawthorne. A majority of their seating is outdoors at long, community-style tables, which is great for making new fur-iends!  Not only does the brewery offer a menu of palatable beers, but they also host a different food truck each day of the week. Spacious and bright, Common Space is an ideal place to take a group of friends and their fellow fur babies too.
