    Dog Beer In The UK


    Apparently if your dog watches you drinking beer (s)he will want to too. I know animals like to copy but I'm not sure they're particularly bothered what they are drinking as long as they've got something to wet their whistle.

    In spite of this, the Dutch introduced Kwispelbier last year, which is designed as a beer for dogs. Now though, that very same beer is available in Pets At Home stores in the UK. Imaginatively renamed (or should that be rebadged) as Dog Beer, this dealcoholized beer can be bought for £1.99 for a 330 ml bottle.

    I haven't got a dog, but if I did I'd give him real beer if he really wanted it rather than this effort. Actually, I'd be more inclined to try it myself; well it's another tick!

    Does non-alcoholic beer count as a scoop? I hope not.

    It depends on your own rules. I do drink them and rate them on RateBeer but they are pretty nasty as a rule. I certainly wouldn't go out of my way to drink one.

    We sold the dog beer in our pub. Well a dozen trial bottles. It all sold out but no feedback from the dogs that I know of.

    Tandleman, I think you should hound them for some feedback. It's really ruff that they haven't told you if they like it. What a bitch.
