Dog beer keeps tale-waggers lapping

NEW YORK, July 26 (UPI) -- A New York brewery has come out with a nonalcoholic treat for dogs called Slobber Lager.

"It's damn good," Heartland Brewery owner Jon Bloostein told Wednesday's New York Daily News.

The 11-year-old microbrewery invited canine consumers to its Union Square tavern Tuesday to socialize and slobber some of the beef-flavored lager.

Polo, a Bichon Frise, took a sniff and slurped down the whole bowl in a few seconds, the newspaper said.

Diva, a Rottweiler, couldn't get enough. She finished one bowl and moved on to the next. Still thirsty, she sipped from a pint glass then went straight for the tap.

Slobber Lager is not the first beer launched for dogs. Dog Star Brewing Co. has marketed Happy Tail Ale, another nonalcoholic beef-flavored brew, since 2004.
