You might have seen the national clips regarding a new “beer” for dogs. First, I hope people don’t think that they can give their canines real beer–it is not good for them and can cause real harm since they cannot properly digest and metabolize it.
Second, the domestic beer for dogs has been around since at least 2005. Beer that has gone to the dogs include Happy Tail Ale produced by Jamie Miller under the name of Dog Star Brewing. When the governator toured Napa Valley he took some home.
Dogs seem to be lapping it up–but the hooch for your pooch making the news is the Dutch Kwispelbier produced by Terrie Berenden…so there you have it…a domestic beer and import for our cos-mutt-politan pets!
