British pub introduces beer for dogs!
Now, man's best friend can also enjoy a tipple alongside their owners -- thanks to a British pub which has introduced beer for dogs.
The Brandling Villa at South Gosforth in Newcastle has come up with a pet-friendly menu. The pub is now selling a special beer designed for dogs and also serving a Sunday roast covered in cat-flavoured gravy, the 'Daily Mail' reported.
The pub aims to remain traditional but with a modern twist, which includes welcoming dog owners with their pets to enjoy the atmosphere.
But rather than just offering water, the pub decided dogs should join the craft beer revolution too and has started to sell the non-alcoholic beverage for pets.
It is made with beer ingredients of malt and hops, but also includes meat extract. And, dogs seem to have a thirst for the drink as the Brandling Villa has had to reorder fresh stock after the first 48 bottles ran out in a fortnight.
But ironically, manager Dave Carr's own dog, beagle Franco, doesn't like it. Carr said: "It tastes of beef. I don't want to give it to my dog without trying it first. It's pretty revolting and my dog doesn't like it but I've got enough people who drink my stock so it's nice if my dog doesn't join in. "Everyone else's dogs love it. We have some regulars: she'll have a Sauvignon Blanc, he has a pint of Budvar, and Charlie the dog has a dog beer. That's his regular drink. "People seem to think it's a bit mental -- we keep it in the fridge along with other beers and they ask what it is. People think it's just a normal beer with a ridiculous name. There aren't many pubs you can go to with your dog."
The new menu in the pub comes after the first beer especially for dogs was created in the US.
Bowser Beer is made in Arizona from beef or chicken broth with malt barley. It is non-alcoholic and has no carbonation.
