Ever wanted to sit back and have a brew with your four-legged friend? Good Boy Dog Beer has made it possible with their new line of dog friendly beers!
By Mairyn Chorney on Mar. 12, 2019
Good Boy Dog Beer, a Houston-based brewing company, has created a line of beers brewed specifically for your furry best friend. These beers contain no alcohol, no hops (which are toxic to canines) and no synthetic preservatives, resulting in a brew that is 100% puppy safe.
About Good Boy Dog Beer
Husband and wife, Megan and Steve Long, created Good Boy Dog beer out of love for their own dogs and all other animals out there. They are self-proclaimed “obsessed” and wish to adopt anything with fur. Megan and Steve’s oldest Rottweiler, Rocky, is very sensitive to foods and has a list of allergies. They started making Rocky his own treats in order to manage his diet better. The homemade treats eventually progressed to making beer for their dogs.
Where to purchase Good Boy Dog Friendly Beer
Good Boy Dog Beer currently has four beers for sale. All beers are 100% safe for dogs as they are brewed with no alcohol, no hops, and no synthetic preservatives.
The cleverly named line of beers are all based on different flavours and ingredients that even the pickiest of eaters will love. Good Boy Dog Beer flavours include IPA Lot In The Yard (pork based), Mailman Malt Licker (chicken based), Session…Squirrel! (veggie based), and Crotch Sniffin’ Ale (peanut based). These all-natural dog-safe brews contains 12oz of different, fresh ingredients carefully cooked down to make a refreshing and healthy treat for your best friend.
You can find Good Boy Dog Beer in participating stores around the United States. Good Boy Dog Beer also ships their beer (to Canada too!).
