Happy Dog Day, all! According to the Huffington Post, “National Dog Day was started in 2004 to recognize the massive number of shelter pets looking for a good home and to encourage their adoption.” If you already have a furry friend, why not celebrate with him/her by offering:
A Bowser Beer?
Bowser Beer is a beverage developed specifically for dogs that is non-alcoholic and non-carbonated.
Homebrewing today? Why not make some Spent Grain Dog Treats for your pup?
(P.S. HOPS ARE POISONOUS TO DOGS.)
Thanks to Fuzzybrew, we have a recipe to try…
2 cups spent grain
1 cup flour
1/2 cup peanut butter
This recipe makes about two-and-a-half dozen medium-sized biscuits.
- Start with two cups of spent grain. Be sure to make these treats on brew day or refrigerate the grains and make them in a few days before they get moldy.
- Combine all your ingredients in a bowl and mix well.
- Take a rolling pin and create a dense layer on your counter. Cut out your shapes with a cookie cutter or knife. With Valentine’s Day coming up, we created hearts.
- Bake the biscuits at 350 F for 30 minutes to solidify them. Then, turn the heat down to 225 F and bake for additional 3 hours to dry them out and prevent mold growth. Once they cool, be sure to store them in an airtight container.
Or how about dressing your pup in a beer shirt for the occasion?
(They’re so cute!)
Any way you celebrate is perfect. Give your pup a smooch from us here at Inky Beer!
