Non-Alcoholic Dog Beer: Because You Need Friends

Lonely?  Do you have no friends but still wish you had someone to enjoy your beer with?  Someone with a wet nose and four legs?  Or perhaps you’re just looking for a non-alcoholic beer with the beefy taste you crave.  Whatever the case, your prayers have been answered – dog beer is here!

Yes, dog beer.  And not just one brand of dog beer.  Above, you see Bowser Beer,which comes in stick-to-your-ribs beefy ale and low-calorie chicken varieties.

Looking for something lighter?  Then let me suggest Buddy Brew Lapping Lager, which still has that pleasing beef taste, but will leave your pal light on his paws and ready for a round of fetch.

Then there’s Happy Tail Ale, which is brewed in a real brewery, and is “Human Grade” so you can sip on some cold beef drippings alongside your four-legged friend while watching the big game or the Westminster Dog Show or those reruns of the Golden Girls you both enjoy so much.  That Rose, what a cutup!

Still not convinced that dog beer is for you?  Then watch this video below.  I swear that guy and his dog almost high-five as they watch their Ohio State Buckeyes.  You can’t script moments like that!

    My friend got some of these from the creator and gave them to his dog.

    He definitely seemed to enjoy the chicken one as he had it a few times after that.

    I’m surprised that Sam Calagione hasn’t created a beef or chicken beer for humans yet.

    \ would probably still taste better than Coors Light

      I know someone has done the beef thing, but I don’t think it was Sam. Of course with new show, he’ll probably do a Kobe beef brew for a festival in Japan or something.

    This whole concept is pretty awesome when you get right down to it. People take their dogs for doggie pedicures and haircuts and all that other stuff, thinking they’re pampering their pooch. Wanna pamper your dog? Give it beer.

    And I have a perverse curiosity about how beef and/or chicken flavored beer would taste.

      I imagine it might taste like cold beef and barley broth, but you never know until you try.

      I think it’s mostly silly, except for the guy who gives his dog a “beer” after hiking while still out in the wild. It sounds like between good hydration and decent nutrition, this could be good Gatoraide for pooches.

      All I really know is my dog prefers Flanders Red Ales, so this macro pup crap is beneath her. What a snobby bitch!

    Reading your first paragraph, I thought you were describing me! (Not sure if that’s funny or not.) Anyway, I remember going through some of my web logs and remember seeing that someone had come to my site after searching for ‘Turkey Flavored Beer’.

    Needless to say, I was enraged and appalled by the concept, yet if I were more of an entrepreneur instead of a cynic, perhaps this post would be about my beer for dogs instead!

    I still say yuck.

      Yeah, hard to tell how this isn’t just cold beef broth in a beer bottle. It’s a little skeevy.

    I mean it’s cool and all but is there any alcohol at all? I’ve been waiting till my pup turns one- in 3 days! – and then we were going to share a brew. A coming of age sort of rite of passage. I think she has earned the right for a taste of human beer. Is 5% abv too much for a dog? Will my dog be a hop head? Maybe i should research this more.

      No alcohol and no carbonation. Apparently some folks think that’s bad for dogs.

      I imagine they also think it’s bad for you, too. 😉

    Love it! I am headed to the website right now. Thanks guys! My dogs will now have a very merry Christmas!

    • December 1, 2010 at 5:23 pm #

      Good for you, Lennie! Let us know how they like it.

      Maybe I should start working on a wine for cats – the *Morris Merlot *or the *Catbernet **Sauvignon*

    Wow! After a couple non alcholic dog beers can I hand over the keys and let Toto drive home. Now do I spend that ten dollars on a six pack for me or my dog(s)? Looks like Porter and Henson (my dogs) are going thirsty again.

      They probably wouldn’t appreciate it anyway, and trust me, dogs don’t drive well. I can show you the dents. It’s work best left to toddlers.
