Having a beer with a friend after a long day can be a great way to decompress. But what if your best friend is your furry family member? Alcohol isn’t safe for dogs, so they can’t truly enjoy a drink with you. That is, until now.
Busch beer has launched a new product in honor of National Dog Day: dog-friendly beer. Now, you and your best friend can finally hang out the way your human friends do.
Beer for Dogs
Of course, this beer is non-alcoholic, but it’s as close to real beer for dogs as you’ll get. Instead, it’s a savory bone broth that your dog is sure to love. It comes in a normal can of beer, but it’s labeled as “dog brew” so humans don’t get confused.
The ingredients are bone-in pork butt, whole corn, celery, basil, mint, turmeric, ginger, and water. Not your typical beer ingredients, but your dog won’t know the difference. Plus, it’s supposed to help promote a healthy digestive system for your pup.
Like other bone broth products, this “beer” can be served by itself in a bowl or it can be used as a tasty food topper. Your dog can have the whole can without any negative effects, but if you have a smaller dog, you can leave the opened can in the fridge for up to 5 days. Believe it or not, this dog beer is much healthier than the human alternative.
Buy Some Beer, Save Some Dogs
Busch’s dog brew isn’t just made to benefit your own dog. It can actually help other dogs in need too. Busch has partnered with Best Friends Animal Society to help dogs find forever homes. For every case of beer (six 4-packs) sold, $1 will be donated to the organization. This will continue for up to $50,000.
“After a long day there’s nothing quite like having a Busch with a friend, and with so many new pet owners across America this year, we wanted to create a brew to give our fans a chance to share a Busch brew with their ‘best friend,'” Daniel Blake, VP of Value Brands at Anheuser-Busch, said. “Additionally, we’re proud to be able to partner with Best Friends Animal Society and continue our efforts to help those furry friends still looking for a home.”
This isn’t the first time the company has reached out to help rescue dogs. They held another event where anyone who adopted or fostered a dog during the pandemic was eligible to win a 3-month supply of free beer. It’s clear that this company loves dogs just as much as they love beer.
If you’re eager to share a beer with your true best friend, then you can purchase a 4-pack of the dog “beer” on Busch’s website.
