I don't know if this technically qualifies as beer but I thought I'd share this article with all the dog lovers out there. Non-alcoholic, non-carbonated meat broth and malted barley mixed together doesn't sound great to me but I'm sure my dog would love it.

Sorry about the link, not sure what the problem is/was but I found it on ABC's site. The "brew" is without hops. Here is the first paragraph:

"What's the legal drinking age in dog years?

That's what you might be asking yourself if you come across a bottle of Bowser Beer, a new brew crafted for a canine clientele. But you need not worry: this dog-friendly beer is non-alcoholic. Eschewing hops, which are toxic to dogs, Bowser Beer is a non-carbonated mixture of meat-broth and malt barley, with glucosamine added for joint health."

Bad for both dogs and cats, will cause a form of hypothermia. Keep your hops away from your pets.

On the other hand, the barley broth sounds like something my dogs would like.
