For beer lovers and thirsty dogs, there is now an option for hanging out together and sharing a brew. Let the party begin. According to newsbbc, "A small brewery in the Netherlands has launched a new beer designed to bring cool relief to thirsty dogs. Kwispelbier, marketed as "a beer for your best friend", is made from a special brew of beef extract and malt. The beverage is a creation of pet shop owner Gerrie Berendsen, who wanted her dogs to share light refreshments with her after a day's hunting. The beer is non-alcoholic and fit for human consumption, but costs four times as much as a Heineken. "Kwispel" is the Dutch word for wagging a tail. You can see Benito here, a 5-year-old Chihuahua who lives with the inventor of the beer.
