Walk the Dog

Did you know….Newcastle Brown Ale is affectionately called the ‘Dog’ by those in know.  

A euphemism originating in Newcastle, UK, “Walking the Dog” is code for scampering to the local pub for a pint of Newcastle Brown Ale.  Usually greeted with a sigh from your significant, this witty drinking excuse has become a classic in England.

Lucky you – this insider info can get you invited to Newcastle Brown Ale’s inaugural “Walk the Dog” Day – an excuse for Southern California Newkie fans to meet up with friends and enjoy a pint in an exclusive location with music from The Entrance Band and entertainment.  


Newcastle Brown Ale “Walk the Dog” Day  

Date:    Saturday, Sept. 24, 2011

Time: 11 am to 3pm

Location: The Echo (1822 w. Sunset Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90026) 

Get on the List: Invites are limited – to be considered for tickets, please email and check out the Newcastle Brown Ale Facebook Page.


Also required for entrance, a minimum $1 donation to benefit the Los Angeles Art Association (, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide opportunities, resources, and services for emerging Los Angeles artists of all media.

Note – references of “dog” always equals Newcastle Brown Ale, and not a furry, four-legged animal.
