Yes, even dogs are going THROUGH! IT! during this non-stop cycle of 2020s ever-loving bullshit, so why hasn’t some company come up with a crisp, refreshing can of “beer” for puppers? Well, Busch Brewers managed to take a look at the figures and determined that canines aren’t getting anywhere near fucked-up enough with their drunk owners, so they quite fittingly said “hold my beer” and got to work on a brew made just for dogs. Although, sadly for dogs, it’s non-alcoholic.
According to People, Busch Beer announced Wednesday that it’s expanding its reach to the animal kingdom by offering a disgusting sounding concoction called Dog Brews––which are 12-oz., non-alcoholic, canned drinks make just for dogs so that they too can enjoy a cold one with their owner (honestly, if you’re drinking with your dog I think a more meaningful conversation should be happening).
The doggy beverages include ingredients like bone-in pork butt (for the nasty bitch in your life), whole corn, celery, basil, mint, turmeric, and ginger, all in a drinkable bone broth. Meanwhile, it probably costs about $2 to go out to the grocery store and buy, you know, ACTUAL bone broth (that, hey, maybe you yourself can enjoy, too). But I get it, what’s the point of being a proud beer drinker if you don’t have anybody (or anything) to pressure into joining you on your next bender? A four-pack costs $9.99 and for every case (6 four-packs) sold, Busch will donate $1 to Best Friends Animal Society, up to $50,000.

Daniel Blake, VP of Value Brands at Anheuser-Busch, said this:
“After a long day there’s nothing quite like having a Busch with a friend, and with so many new pet owners across America this year, we wanted to create a brew to give our fans a chance to share a Busch brew with their ‘best friend’.”
If you want to have a beer with a friend, then have a beer with a friend. Or, just have a beer by yourself. But turning your pet into a drinking companion…is that what 2020 needs on its resume right now? In the meantime, bone-appetite, I guess.
