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 Ryleigh, 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. Spotted Dog's Mesilla taproom now offers a full service menu, in partnership with chef Tom Drake and Colloquium MCU.
