It’s true. We’ve tracked down some non-alcoholic, non-carbonated beers that are just for your dog. No more feeling guilty that you can enjoy a cold drink while you get sad puppy eyes from Spot. Now you can both enjoy happy hour!

Flat12 Paws Dog Brew


FLAT12 Bierwerks in Indianapolis, Indiana was already super dog friendly, so it made sense for them to create a doggie beer. Flat12 Paws Dog Brew is made from meat bones as well as carrots, potatoes, and brewer’s yeast that is simmered for three hours. The mix is then blended in a keg with wort, the liquid extracted from the process of brewing alcoholic beer. Word on the street is that the brew takes just like soup broth.

Snuffle Dog Beer


Offered in two flavors, chicken flavored and a mix of chicken and beef flavored, Snuffle Dog Beer is for Belgian beer lovers, and can be found in Europe, Hong Kong, and South Korea. This smooth refreshment is made with human grade ingredients, so it’s pretty healthy, too! Your Lab is free to guzzle an entire Snuffle, while a Great Dane can take down two, and the little ones should stick to half a Snuffle at a time.

Dog Beer


Although it’s not the most creative name, Dog Beer is super popular in Brazil. Dog Beer is made with water, meat (chicken or beef), and malt, making it very similar to human beer, except it isn’t fermented.

Bowser Brewing Company


Bowser Brewing Company allows your pup to choose from six packs of Beefy Brown Ale, Cock-A-Doodle Brew, or Mixed (with beef and chicken). As an added bonus, the ales are made with glucosamine, which is great for your dog’s joints! Bowser Beer can be found in liquor stores, breweries, and pet-related shops around the United States, and on Amazon. Bowser Beer can also make custom labels if you want to throw a serious doggie birthday party that will make your pup the most popular dog on the block!

Dawg Grog


Dawg Grog is a vegetarian (!) beer option for your dawg, made with brewers wort, vegetarian glucosamine (specially for dogs), vegan trace mineral supplements, and Oregon mountain water. Dawg Grog uses local ingredients, bottling products, and services to create their grog, supporting the Central Oregon community as much as possible. The company considers the brew more of a supplement than a drink, and it comes in 8 oz. pints with recommendations of 4 oz. for bigger dogs, 2 oz. for a medium dog, and 1 oz. for a smaller pooch. Dawg Grog is available online and in some stores in Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Texas, and Pennsylvania in the United States.
