We recently asked our listeners if they think it it’s okay for kids to drink alcohol-free beer? Now we are asking about pets...

Have you ever wished you could give your dog beer and if so, what's the legal drinking age in dog years?

Not long ago, Busch Beer announced that it is expanding its reach to the animal kingdom by making a special brew for dogs called “Dog Brew.” That’s right folks, the new 12-oz. canned drinks let your special pup drink alongside you whenever you want. But don't worry, the canine-friendly brews are alcohol-free and said to have a dog-friendly favor.  

And if you wanted to share the drink with your dog, the beer is also safe for humans to drink!

While the new brand of beverage is not a meal replacement, it can be served on its own and include ingredients such as bone-in pork butt, whole corn, celery, basil, mint, turmeric, and ginger, all in a drinkable bone broth.

Four-packs are sold online for $9.99 while supplies last, with additional Dog Brew merchandise also available to shop.

What’s the catch?

The new dog-friendly product launch comes five months after Busch partnered with Midwest Animal Rescue & Services (MARS) to incentivize customers to adopt dogs during the pandemic.

For every case of Dog Brew sold (six 4-packs), Busch will donate $1 to Best Friends Animal Society, up to $50,000.

Busch also donated $25,000 to MARS to help find animals loving homes across the country.

If you would like to make a purchase, the product is not available in stores but can be bought on their website.  

Most importantly, the beer makers noted that real beer should not be given to dogs under any circumstances because it is toxic to the animals.
