Cheers to Dog Beers!

"In dog beers, I've had 1." - Grandpaw Toto 

From local craft breweries to some of America's most popular beer manufacturers, more businesses are starting to offer dog-friendly "beers" for our fur-friends. Your pup can finally crack open a cold one with you after a long day of working Squirrel Security.

Don't worry, all of these dog beers and wines are 100% alcohol-free. These six pet-obsessed breweries and wineries (listed below) don't consider their beverages as just another dog treat. Each faux ale and wine recipe is made to prolong your pup's healthy joints and fuel their body with nutrients for another rad day of adventures and naps. These cool cans of savory broths can be served over your dog's meal to soften food and maintain healthy digestion, or you can pour it directly into a stein or bowl- however your dog prefers to pawrty. Another win: your pup doesn't need to be 21 dog-years-old to try it- they're not even checking collars!

"You're not drinking alone if your dog is home" is a solid motto for drinking a glass of wine (or 3) after a long work day while your pup pretends to watch Netflix with you. Fortunately, Apollo Peak Dog Wine is changing the routine by becoming one of the first pet-friendly wineries in the US. Their punny wine variety includes Chardogenay, Zinfantail, Malbark and Doge Rose. Don't worry, this is an alcohol-free and grape-free faux wine made specifically for pups. Each of these boujie beverages are made with natural ingredients including 100% Alaskan Salmon Oil, filtered water infused with dog-safe herbs and a splash of beet juice for color.
