Everyone loves beer these days. With the craft beer movement showing no signs of petering out, it’s no surprise that faithful brew hounds around the world have taken to Instagram to post pictures of their latest finds. Even better, #DogsAndBrew has become a thing, with discerning beer fans proudly pairing bottles and cans with their canine drinking buddies. Here’s your introduction to the trend.
1. The IPA hound
The enthusiastic look on this rescue’s face lets you know that he’s fully on board with the IPA movement. The Stonefly’s “direct burst of hop fruitiness” has him salivating at the chops!
2. The bombing Bulldog
Prairie boasts an 13 percent ABV rating, so it’s no surprise that this Bulldog has slipped into a nap after supping down on a bottle of this imperial stout (though it’s more likely just nap time).
3. Rottweiler vs. Miller Lite
You’d be looking pretty depressed too if someone served you up such a heinous light brew!
4. What’s in a name?
This Miniature Australian Shepherd shares the same name as the six pack of milk stouts he’s so fearlessly guarding. That’s a good dog right there.
5. The trickster
Sweetwater’s IPA bills itself as being “The beer you’ve been training for.” This pooch is taking the slogan literally.
6. The Pawstralian ambassador
This rescue is mighty proud of his down-under roots — including his country’s most iconic beer.
7. Hops and dairy
This Boston Terrier is an advanced craft beer advocate. Here he’s showing his daring side by pairing a bold mocha amaretto coffee beer from Batemans Brewery with a sneaky cheese snack.
8. It’s all downhill
A trashy beer deserves a trashy pose — and this dinky French Bulldog certainly isn’t shy about mimicking his brew with an ungainly stance.
Technically, this move is called the Homer J. Simpson. Don’t judge!
