The man's best friend can finally enjoy a man's favorite drink
There's nothing like a fresh cold one after a hard days work. (Well, some may say that I have never experienced a hard day's work, but lets imagine that I have.) Why not enjoy a tasty treat with your best friend?
Well, if I had a dog (and I have no plans to..) It would be fun to enjoy a tasty brew with my puppy. Maybe Murray (our 2BeerGuys furry friend) would enjoy a tasty treat? Time will only tell.

A cold one for man's best friend

AMSTERDAM, Netherlands (AP) -- After a long day hunting, there's nothing like wrapping your paw around a cold bottle of beer.
So Terrie Berenden, a pet shop owner in the southern Dutch town of Zelhem, created a beer for her Weimaraners made from beef extract and malt.
"Once a year we go to Austria to hunt with our dogs, and at the end of the day we sit on the veranda and drink a beer. So we thought, my dog also has earned it," she said.
Berenden consigned a local brewery to make and bottle the nonalcoholic beer, branded as Kwispelbier. It was introduced to the market last week and advertised as "a beer for your best friend."
"Kwispel" is the Dutch word for wagging a tail.
The beer is fit for human consumption, Berenden said. But at $2.14 (or 1.65 euro) a bottle, it's about four times more expensive than a Heineken.
This was reported by the Associated Press.
