It's hot and muggy outside, and you know how good it feels to throw back a beer or two with friends. Well, Man's Best Friend wants to get in on the action, too. Say hello to Bowser beer, a non-alcoholic, non-carbonated "beer" for dogs! Unlike regular beer, Bowser Beer doesn't have any hops in it, which are toxic to dogs; rather, it's made of meat-broth, malt barley, and glucosamine, which is added for joint health. The creator of Bowser Beer, Jenny Brown, started the company in 2007, but she now ships the canine brew in two flavors—Beefy Brown Ale
—to pet stores in 42 states. She even has a special edition selling in the pet section of London's Harrods department store!
Brown's serving suggestions:
• Have your dog drink it straight from the bottle.
• Pour it over dry kibble.
• Flavor the water bowl.
• Pour over crushed ice for a cold, crunchy treat.
