Bowser Beer, a brew for dogs
I’m not entirely sure Bowser Beer is, as claimed, the first beer for dogs.
And at $20 a six-pack, it’s out of my league — and therefore Ace’s.
But other than that, it seems harmless enough – a non-alcoholic, non-carbonated brew (made without hops, which can make dogs ill) that combines malt barley and homemade chicken or beef broth.
It comes in two varieties: Beefy Brown Ale and Cock-a-Doodle Brew.
Made by an Arizona company called 3 Busy Dogs, Bowser Beer, has been around for at least four years, but it’s being hailed on many websites this week as something new, and as a first, thanks to the World Records Academy, an outfit that pretends to be like Guinness (the world record book not the beer), but is actually more about marketing than measuring.
The WRA proclaimed Bowser Beer the official first beer for dogs earlier this month.
Bowser Beer got its start in 2007 in Washington, D.C., when a company that was already making pretzels for dogs, decided dog beer would be a nice accompaniment.
That same year a Dutch company started marketing a beer for dogs.
Who came first? Who cares.
