So many people have written to us over the years asking about Olive, our Old Brown Dog mascot, that we decided to put up her own page.
Olive was a mixed breed, half Weimaraner and half Brittany spaniel. She was born in 1991 and died peacefully at home in 2007, just shy of her sixteenth birthday. A regular fixture at Smuttynose, visitors to the brewery often reacted as they'd met a celebrity when they encountered her there. Some went so far as to express surprise that she was a “real” dog and not a fictitious creation of our marketing department!
Despite the fact that each year we ship out millions of bottles of Old Brown Dog bearing her likeness, she always wore her fame gracefully.
