Beer Made Just for Dogs

Beer Made Just for Dogs

After a long day of chasing balls, sniffing tails, and general canine carousing, what dog wouldn’t want to kick up his paws and unwind with pops after work with a cold one? Well, now your parched pooch can do just that, with a beer brewed specifically for dogs. Australian pet deli and boutique, Paws Point, has developed Dog Beer, “Our dogs loved beer but it is so bad for them. They were always trying to sneak a sip so we decided to make them beer they could enjoy.”

If you are stateside, Napa Valley company, Dog Star Brewing Company, offers a more local alternative. Their Happy Tail Ail is brewed in 500-gallon copper kettles, and is fortified with Glucosamine and Vitamin E.

Both beers are non-alcoholic and non-carbonated, and made with human-grade ingredients. But if you’re thinking of trying a swig yourself, be warned. It’s beef-flavored. Yes, that would mean flat, alcohol-free, meat-infused beer. Ah, such is a dog’s life.
