If you’ve ever wondered whether you can share a cold one with your pup, the short answer is: no. The alcohol, hops and carbonation are all unhealthy for your pet. But that doesn’t mean he can’t sip on a special concoction created just for him! These clever companies have created delicious and healthy dog beers just for our canine companions. In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, or any occasion where you find yourself pouring a pint at your favorite pet-friendly brewery, order up some hooch for your pooch and drink responsibly together at last.

Snuffle Dog Beer
What’s better than having a beer alongside your drinking “pawtner?” A beer and fries! Hailing from Belgium, Snuffle Dog Beer recently released crispy crunchy canine fries to pair with its popular canine beverage.

The dog beer contains Vitamin B, malt barley extracts and mineral oils, while the fries are made of potatoes and cornmeal, crisped up in an air fryer and containing only 0.8% fat.
