British Pub Serves Dog Beer
A Newcastle pub becomes the first licensed premises in the UK to sell dog beer.
We all know a man’s best friend is his dog, and often that best friends accompany each other to the pub. Sadly however in the past while the man enjoyed the beer, his best friend had to settle for nothing, or a bowl of water at best.
Pub manager Dave Carr from The Brandling Villa pub in Gosforth, Newcastle Upon Tyne saw a gap in the market and produced a dog friendly non-alcoholic beer. The dog beer consists of a mixture of malt and beef flavourings.
Dogs even get their own “dog Beer” bottles, although drinking from the bottle is not likely.
Carr said he wanted to offer dogs much more variety than a simple dog biscuit and a bowl of water.
Carr’s doggy delights don’t end at beer though, canine visitors to the also have a dog menu to choose from which includes Chicken Chasseur and a choice of Sunday roasts covered in cat flavoured gravy. One journalist was intrigued to discover how the pub was able to identify “cat flavour” but no response was received.
If The Brandling Villa’s doggy delights prove successful, we could soon see the vision in pubs across the land.
