Bar Dog's job isn't limited to welcoming guests: He frequently tweets to announce the brewery's specials and he entertains other dogs at Bardo (yes, you can bring your dog). He's also the brewery's security guard.
The instant Bardo's beers started flowing from the taps, Stewart says, he's seen a noticeable increase in customers.

"We want to put together a self serve beer tap setup . so that's on our agenda too," he says.
If you plan a visit to Bardo, make sure to bring food; the brewery serves only beer. And if you want to make fast friends with Bar Dog, make sure that food is in the form of pizza. He's made it very clear it's his favorite.
Unlike other breweries in the District, Bardo is an outdoor operation. It's in a formerly vacant lot on Bladensburg Road so Bar Dog's patrol role is an important one.
"We like the outside," Stewart says. So there's really not much outside area, unless you're in a park. And you can't drink in those."
"He lives here day and night," Stewart says. "He knows when the gate is locked, it's his domain. If you climb the fence in the middle Adidas High Tops Canvas of the night, you have to talk to Bar Dog. It probably isn't going to be a good conversation, either."
Stewart says the past year has been nonstop work from constructing the movie screen on the brewery's shipping containers, building fire pits during the colder months, renovating the indoor space and launching Bardo's brewing operation. He's ready for a beach vacation, but still has plans to improve the venue.

Stewart says last year, a few guys climbed the fence and attempted to take a few things from the brewery, but Bar Dog "chewed them up."
"This is his domain. He doesn't like to leave," says Bill Stewart, co owner of Bardo. Stewart adopted Bar Dog, an Australian cattle dog, from West Virginia at about the same time he and his brother Andrew opened the brewery in the District of Columbia's Trinidad neighborhood.
"Everything is still pretty much the same; we're just making beer now," Stewart says.

"We're making the same old (Great American Beer Festival) award winning beers, and we're going to add some new beers, too because there's new varieties of hops and all that," says Stewart, who also has plans to brew a Tibetan style beer.
"We've got an official women's room, men's room and everything," Stewart says. "Everybody (complained) about the port a potty, so that was the first thing we got rid of."
