Melbourne, May 19 (ANI): Now, you can actually enjoy a chilled mug of beer with your best friend thanks to a no-alcohol beer brewed especially for dogs.

Dog Beer, or DB, was designed by Sydney pet supplies store owner Elise Schumacher after she observed her own dogs, named Louis and Vuitton, jumping for drops of beer.

And thus, Schumacher invented Dog Beer, which is just like real beer but without the alcohol.

“It’s DB, just like VB, and the slogan is, ‘Shout your best friend a beer. Dogs really love human beer but it’s bad for them, quoted her, as saying.

Schumacher said that the hops in beer could cause dogs to have seizures while the carbon can lead some to die.

In a bid to keep her family pets happy, Schumacher, owner of Paws Point store in Sydney’s eastern suburbs, decided to create a canine-friendly beer.

After researching how to brew her own beer, the mother of two then had to taste test the beef flavours.

“I have drunk it. It tastes like beef and smells like beer, she said.

The special beer is packaged in brown bottles identical to those of normal beers and is sold in local cafes and for barbecues. It also costs as much as regular beer, with customers paying A5 dollars a bottle.

“It is popular with male customers,” she said, adding that summer barbecues often prompted greater sales.

“People pick up a few bottles for the dogs, she added. (ANI)
