Happy Tail Ale

Now you and your dog can sit around and cry in your beers together! Or, when you’re having that all important dogs night out poker game, here’s your doggy beverage! Its Happy Tail Ale and it was inspired by a Dogster! What a cool idea!

No, I am NOT making this up. Happy Tail Ale really is for dogs and it really was inspired by Dogster Kodi! Kodi even has his own blog talking about making and selling dog beer!

Has any Dogster tried this poochie pilsner? Bark in!

Here’s what it says on The Happy Tail Ale site about how they got the idea for this unusual beverage:

Beer for dogs” all started with our very own Kodiak Bear. We adopted Kodi in the summer of 2002 and fell in love. Kodi has grown into a playful, sweet and loyal companion and we try to do whatever we can to let him know how much he means to us. We feed him the best food we can, rub his tummy every time he rolls over to ask, and take him to the doggie park whenever possible.

We also take him camping, and it was on these trips that we noticed that he had an affinity for beer. While sitting around the campfire at night, we noticed that if we put our beers down on the ground next to our chairs, he’d knock them over and try to lick it from the dirt!

So, the night before his second birthday, we were talking about what we should give him as a ‘present.’ We talked about buying him some nonalcoholic brew that he could have all to himself, without trying to knock ours over! And, that’s how the idea came about…to make a version just for dogs. No alcohol, no carbonation. Made with malted barley and filtered water, fortified with Glucosamine and Vitamin E, with a natural beef flavor!
