Meat-Flavored Beers for Your Dog!
Die-hard dog-lovers are known to go above and beyond for their canine friends. Whether it’s paying to leave them at an expensive doggy day-care during the work week, providing them with a wardrobe that would rival any young fashionista, or even purchasing them gourmet treats from popular bakeries, there is truly no limit to how one can spoil his/her pup. So how about sharing an ice cold brew with your fury friend? No, I’m not talking about cracking open a Heineken and dumping it into your dog’s water dish. In fact, people beer is incredibly harmful for Fido. The next time you’re at a house party, and you see some random bro feeding the dog some beer, please, for the sake of the dog’s health, stop them! There is no such thing as a “drunk dog,” but there most certainly is such a thing as a SICK dog. When I say, “Share an ice cold brew,” I’m actually referring to the specially crafted, dog-friendly beers from a Minnesota-based brewery. The company, 3 Busy Dogs, has created “Bowser Beer” for the dog-lovers who want to party with their mutts.
Bowser Beer does not actually contain alcohol because carbonation and hops are harmful to a dog’s digestive system. Instead, owner Jenny Brown created the flavors “Cock-A-Coodle-Brew” and “Beefy Brown Ale” with the aide of the U.S Department of Agriculture certified chicken and beef. Yum! Owners can either serve the beer straight up out of the bottle or even pour it over their dog’s dry food in order to add an extra flair to an otherwise drab meal. Another cute idea, according to the website, is to freeze the Bowser Beer and serve it as an ice cold treat–perfect for the upcoming July heat! These specialty doggy beers can be purchased online for $19.99 for a six- pack. You can purchase the product online or in select specialty pet stores across the country.
So why not crack open a cold one for man’s best friend? This summer is only about to get hotter, and what better way to spend a hot day than doing a little bit of day drinking with your loyal pupparoo? Safely, of course!
