With much of the nation still stuck in their homes thanks to COVID-19, dog adoptions are soaring. And all things “doggy” (vet visits, dog food and merch, dog toys) are posting record profits.
So maybe that’s why Busch Beer decided that the time was right to introduce a new dog brew, after all, nobody likes drinking at home alone.
On August 26, which just happens to be National Dog Day (no accident there), Busch took to Twitter to announce it’s first-ever dog-only brew.
And doggone it, it got our attention.
Busch Dog Brew is an all-natural product that contains only fresh ingredients. Billed as “a nutritious and tasty snack for your four-legged friend that helps to promote a healthy digestive system,” It’s made with bone-in pork butt(!), whole corn, celery, basil, mint, turmeric, ginger and water.
What it doesn’t contain is hops and alcohol, which is a good thing because hops and alcohol are like poison for dogs…and that would not be a good thing.
Busch’s announcement also came with this set Busch Dog Brew FAQs that were also entertaining.
CAN DOGS ACTUALLY DRINK BEER?
NOPE! Alcohol and hops are toxic for dogs. Keep the Busch to yourself. That’s why we made this special pork bone broth brew for your best bud.
CAN HUMANS DRINK THIS STUFF?
Suuure, if that’s what you’re into! We here at Busch do not judge. BUT this bone broth is made for a dog’s refined palate. You may find it pretty bland & yes, we’ve tried it a few times. Part of the job.
HOW DO YOU RECOMMEND I SERVE THIS PRODUCT?
Pour our Busch Dog Brew into your dog’s bowl by itself or over food. Can be served cold or room temperature (some dogs don’t like cold items).
HOW MUCH SHOULD I GIVE MY DOG?
It depends on the weight of your dog but it is NOT harmful to consume the entire can of Busch Dog Brew in one sitting. For smaller dogs: Busch Dog Brew will last for 5 days after opened in the fridge so that the snack can last longer. IT IS NOT A MEAL REPLACEMENT. Feed your dogs, they love food just as much as you.
WHERE CAN I FIND BUSCH DOG BREW?
Dog Brew is sold only over e-commerce, but ships to all states in the US. Don’t worry, we’ll get Fido his brew. Somehow, someway.
And not missing an opportunity, Busch is also offering a full line of Busch Dog Beer gear, but you’d better act fast.
When we checked the website the brew 4-packs had already sold out (don’t worry they’re making more) and the uber-cute Bush Dog Brew pet collars and dog tags were also gone.
