Pet Shop Owner Creates "Kwispelbier" ... a Beer for Dogs?!
Posted by: Todd on Monday - January 22, 2007 - 14:56 UTC
Topic Origin: Beer Talk

Now here's a really stupid idea, but some insane dog (and beer) lover out there will no doubt think otherwise. Yes, a beer for dogs made from beef extract and malt. Well, that doesn't really make it a beer, simply because it's not fermented, but that didn't stop Terrie Berenden, a pet shop owner in the town of Zelhem, who created a non-alcoholic beer for her Weimaraner dog. What the hell?!

Berenden contracted a local brewery to brew and bottle: Kwispelbier, which is Dutch for "wagging a tail." It was introduced to the market last week and advertised as "a beer for your best friend."

(That's Benito, a 5-year-old Chihuahua drinking the "beer" in Hulst, Netherlands)

AP quoted her as stating: "Once a year we go to Austria to hunt with our dogs, and at the end of the day we sit on the verandah and drink a beer. So we thought, my dog also has earned it." Apparently, Kwispelbier is also fit for human consumption and will run you around euro1.65 ($2.14) a bottle. And yes, I'll hunt down and kill the first BeerAdvocate to review this "beer" and enter it into the database. ;-)

Um, anyway .... I'll pass, but tell me when they come out with an alcoholic beer for my cats.

Aww it's NA, I was hoping they were going to say it was at least a little alcoholic. :-b

I saw this when it was in Time magazine. I like how on the label (I'm not sure that you can see it in that picture) it says "HOUNDBIER" ;-D

They've got gourmet cooks that will make dog food in some upscale hotels. I know the Drake in Chicago has a couple on staff. They've got dog psychologists, dog spas, and I know of one dog that inherited millions when his owner died and that dog now has a butler.

So, beer made for dogs just doesn't surprise me. :-°

Actually beer is good for lactating bitches that aren't producing enough milk for their puppies - for some reason it stimulates milk production! I've used it on my dogs.
