The Heaven After Hell pet rescue event in Indianapolis had something that no other event has had: beer for dogs. Flat 12 Bierwerks launched
its first "dog brew" at a local adoption event over the weekend.
The Indianapolis-based brewery wanted to make a special
treat for their beloved canine companions. The brew is completely safe for dogs
with no alcohol or carbonation.
"I think every employee here owns a dog," Valerie Green,
Flat 12's marketing director, told the Indy Star. "We are all very
The dog beer is made with meat bones, trimmings, carrots,
potatoes and brewer's yeast. Smoking Goose, a local meatery, donates the bones
and trimmings. The brewers, led by head brewer Sean Manahan, create a stock
with the ingredients and let it simmer for three hours before blending it with
wort, which is a liquid extracted during the normal beer brewing process. The final
product is placed in a keg.
Dogs and humans alike have tasted the dog beer. Humans
report that it tastes like a soup broth, and dogs are quick to lap up any bit
of the brew that they can.
The Flat 12 team plans to have the dog beer on tap at $1 for
a bowl. All proceeds will be donated to local animal shelters.
