Busch Dog Brew means that your pup can enjoy a cold one, too.
The new Busch Dog Brew means that your pup can enjoy a cold one, too, and launching on National Dog Day is just perfect.
Busch Dog Brew isn’t actually beer – dogs can’t actually drink alcohol – but instead a pork-based bone broth, with other ingredients listed as whole corn, celery, basil, mint, tumeric ginger and water.
We think this is an amazing idea, as Busch is an iconic brand and dog treats are fun to spoil our friends with sometimes.
The new brew from Busch Beer is sold in four-packs of 12-ounce cans for $9.99, and People Magazine is reporting that $1 of every case (six units of four-packs) sold will be going to the Best Friends Animal Society.
For the time being it’s only offered online, and seems to only be available to US customers.
“After a long day there’s nothing quite like having a Busch with a friend, and with so many new pet owners across America this year, we wanted to create a brew to give our fans a chance to share a Busch brew with their ‘best friend,'” Daniel Blake, VP of Value Brands at Anheuser-Busch, said in a press release.
Busch also helped pay the costs through their foster and adoption program a few months ago.
Humans could drink it as well, but bone broth is very much an acquired taste, so that’s probably not the best route to take. However, it does have many health benefits, so there’s that aspect to consider as well.
Busch Beer recommends serving Busch Dog Brew either by itself or over your dog’s kibble, and it can last up to five days in the fridge after being opened.
This is a treat, not a meal replacement, and so should just go on the side.
As our friends at FanSided Network sister site FoodSided note, this is also certified by AAFCO, the American Assocation of Feed Control Officials, one of the entities that set pet food standards.
There is also a lot of cool Busch Dog Brew gear for doggos on their website, including collapsable bowls, tags, collars, leashes and flying discs.
