Beer Made Just for Dogs 50

Every dog owner knows there is nothing more pathetic than watching your dog beg for a sip of your delicious beer. Now, thanks to some forward thinking brewers, you can finally drink with your dog. Australian pet deli and boutique Paws Point, and American brewer Dog Star Brewing Company, have designed beers especially for dogs. Both beers are non-alcoholic, non-carbonated, and infused with meat flavor, making them less than ideal for all but the most troubling family Christmas.

  • Non alcoholic, non carbonated?! This isn't beer.

    Where's the fun if I can't see my dog drunk and burping with me?

  • My girlfriend's dog drinks beer. Spilled some on the floor once and the dog licked it up before we could clean it up... then pissed all over the place.

    They've had this for years. It's called Pabst Blue Ribbon. You can't tell me that's actually made for human consumption.

    Kwispelbier has been around since 2007 [bbc.co.uk].
  • Non-carbonated, non-alcoholic and beef flavored (or infused, if you must.) Sounds like I could accomplish the same thing with a pot of water and a bouillon cube. It's broth, right?

    flat, non-alcoholic beef flavored liquid is called broth. Save your money.

    Here's a more beer-like recipe:
    Dry malt extract and water; experiment to get about 1.02 starting specific gravity--we're trying to be non-alcoholic here. Herb it up with wheatgrass and or other dog friendly herbs [natural-do...medies.com] (NOT HOPS!!!). Boil, cool wort, pitch yeast, and bottle immediately. Let carbonate 1-2 weeks.

    I'm going to experiment with this recipe, one gallon batches, different herbs, taste it to see how nasty (or tasty?) it is before giving it to my dog.

    He seems to be content with water, though, as long as I toss a ball for him while I'm tossing back a cold one.

    I'm trying to figure out the mental disorder necessary to actually buy this for your dog. Not only do you have to have the dreadfully increasing psychosis that makes people get confused between dogs and humans, but you also have to think this anthropamorphised animal would want to drink beer and not get drunk. Regular non-alcholic beer is for humans with a mental disorder. Even if you accept peoples disorder that makes them think dogs are children, you would have to deal with the secondary disorder that they think their dog is an alcholic that needs something that looks and tastes like beer, but want's to 'protect' them by giving them some that is non-alcholic.

    The very case for this stuff is like listening to the logic of the Vizzini from the Princes Bride. [youtube.com]
    • Or maybe they are just having a beer with their favorite pal. What we need now is IPA for cats made with catnip instead of hops! and a bag of superballs! PARTY!

      Excuse me, but my d-o-g-s are the ones with the psychosis. They have absolutely no idea that they are d-o-g-s, the same with my c-a-t. Now if you will excuse me I have to take my anit-psychotic meds.

      If you think that to be true a priori, then I suspect you are just somebody who doesn't like beer. It's actually the test I use. If someone made a non-alcoholic beer that tasted exactly the same as an alcoholic beer, would you drink it? If you say "no", then you don't like beer, you just like alcohol.

      Personally, I'd drink non-alcoholic beer (and whiskey and gin) if it met this criteria. Sadly, most commercially-available non- and low-alcohol beers are less tasty than their full-strength counterparts. This i
