Bosco the Dog Mayor

We went just to have a beer from Bosco, and we talked to the bartender and a local. The mural in the bar is of the original donors who paid to rebuild the bar that burned down. Come to find out the local we were talking to was the owner of Bosco! A particularly quiet individual who isn't very outspoken about being the Mayor's owner. It was a great stop and the beer was pretty good for dog pee.

Bosco's bones and brews

Very cool restaurant/pub featuring the "Mayor" of Sunol, a stuffed dog who distributes the beer. NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART or STOMACH! My 16 year old daughter pronounced it as Gross!
