Every dog owner has to fight the urge to spoil their dog, but they inevitably cave on occasion. Maybe you’ll give your dog some turkey on Thanksgiving or feed him some left over flank steak at a barbecue. But for a long time society has frowned on allowing your dog the pleasure of enjoying a few ice cold beers. Until now! Well, kind of

Daniel Keeton of Bend, Oregon has created a brew especially for dogs called Dawg Grog. Why is it suddenly OK for this guy to start giving beer to dogs? Because Dawg Grog is a non-alcoholic beverage made of out of low-sodium vegetable broth, water and spent grain.

Apparently, dogs love their version of O’Doul’s. Keeton has already had several retailers place orders, and the dogs are reportedly taking to it like Barney Gumble to Duff. Although we our dogs have yet to sample the product, we’re here to help you figure out whether you should buy it.

First off, Dawg Grog sells for $36 for a six pack of 16 oz brews. That means that the fake beer you just bought your dog costs more than the actual beer you bought yourself. It’s hard to justify spending that kind of money when the dog will gladly drink toilet water.

Everyone likes the idea of a sharing a beer with their dog in a safe and responsible way. But does it even taste like beer? If not, it loses its charm. It would be better if Keeton had created a healthy e-cigarette for dogs because it would be kind of fun to watch a dog smoke in a safe and responsible way.
