2 Replies: Zeromyhero: Finally The world's two biggest groups of douchebags -- beer snobs and dog owners -- are brought together to form a super-douche.

And both are easily overtaken by the douchiest of all; the self-righteous dog-hating trolling fark commenters. O_o


Love dogs and beer, hate dog owners and beer snobs. Also love trolling fark threads on occasion so I'm at best 1/4th douche.

And we had to read this via an Indian newspaper? Why wasn't this headline news on my Arkansas Democrat Gazette?

New beer designed for dogs has meat broth, malt barley and contains no alcohol.

Then my dog is no going to want it...

CSB: Was having a backyard cookout with my old roommate, bunch of friends and their dogs came over. The roomie decides to take our guests out past our back property where this especially knarley looking tree grows; all guests and pets follow him, a good 3/4ths mile trek. A bunch of them just place their beers down on the lawn next to their chairs rather than taking the beers with them. Meanwhile, I'm in the kitchen keeping up with the pile of dishes looking out the window that's above the sink and faces right out on to the backyard. My dog decided to stay behind (he'd seen the knarley tree before) so I watch him walk up to one of the beers that is swirled into the lawn. He sniffs it, looks up and forward, turns and looks over his left shoulder, then turns and looks over his right shoulder, picks up one of his paws and gently knocks the beer on its side. He takes one more look over each shoulder before he slurps up the beer entirely.

/he thinks he's human
//my bad

AllUpInYa: Lord Dimwit: My friends and I are, for the most part, beer snobs. For my son's birthday I asked my wife to get beer for the adults and, since a bunch of people who weren't beer snobs are coming, I told her to just get "regular beer" for them. In my mind, "regular beer" is, at a minimum, Fat Tire, Shiner, or (at the bare minimum) Rolling Rock.

She bought Keystone Light.

Still better than no beer.



Keystone Light is - literally - rejected Coors. When they have a batch of Coors come out wrong they package it as Keystone Light. Think about that. It's beer that's not good enough to be called COORS.

I'd rather have a glass of water.

I love to pamper my pooch though, so I just bought him a 6-pack of this doggie beer. He's always trying to drink my beers, so he must like the smell of it, but I'm not about to give him any beer with alcohol in it. He's only 1 1/2 years old, so he's still growing.

Once upon a time I gave my (now ex) wife's yorkie a cap full of Mickeys (back when they did wide mouth hand grenades). That little dog developed an instant association between that green bottle and a cap full of hooch for the pooch.

As far as this "beer" for dogs, it's interesting to see it takes four years for news to get to India. I think this story shows up on Fark at least once each season.

Yeah, my dog got ahold of a beer like that once. Turns out he's a mean drunk. Spent the rest of the night sitting on the end of the couch. Occasionally he'd look over at me and growl, then put his head back down.

Also, apparently, hops are potentially toxic to some dogs. Causes hyperthermia, or so I'm told. Don't give your dog hops (especially if you're into home brewing, like me).

Had a shepherd that did that with a bottle of rum and carton of eggnog one winter, she left the eggnog, drank the rum and slept all night and most of the next day.

My knocked-over beer drinking dog is a 10 year-old dachshund. He's a Saints fan and a Bud man, just like his cheap dad.

Not a fan of giving alcohol to pets for this reason, but with any substance the dose makes the poison.

Nidstang: This isn't a new idea. I saw a beer for dogs infomercial on an episode of Tru TV's "World's Dumbest..." not that long ago. It was one of the ones that featured inventions. I guess more than one person has had this stupid idea.


i'm confident if someone markets a flavored, safe vitamin water for dogs people will buy it. not everyone has children but most everyone loves their little ones, two legged or four.

So you take a quart of broth, a quart of malt extract and probably 2 gal of water. Boil to really desolve the extract and to kill any nasties. Force carbonate and enjoy.

I wonder how well a cold consomme would hold carbonation... that would be an interesting summer appetizer.

My wolf likes beer, but the rest have a thing for Jack Daniels and Maker's Mark (with lemonade). I picked up a 30 pack of *shudders* Hamm's one night...He'd just sit on the couch next to me, quietly staring as if I were holding a BigMac just for him. I'd take a drink...hear the slappy licking of lips 6 inches from my ear, and lean my glass over to him. I got pretty drunk that night, and ended up giving him a little too much; he stumbled around and left a wobbly trail of piss around the livingroom. I felt like such an ass. Not a good dad that night.

/Dante ate a quarter of good shiat left on the coffee table years ago when he was a pup, we think it's why he's mildly retarded now :P

Holy shiat! Way back when, an ex and I had a wolf breed (half alaskan white, 1/4 american grey, 1/4 boxer)... we packaged our *ahem* stuff in a wooden box that had one of those slide-in-lock clasps from the top lid, hidden UNDER the MIDDLE of the bed pressed against a wall. It must've been one of the really nice smelling yumminess... We get home from god-knows-where, don't remember, and Frost is lying on his back in the middle of our bedroom with the box open next to him, with plastic baggie pieces strewn all about...

We freaked the fark out: "What do we do? Take him to the vet?!", "He seems chill, how the hell are we going to explain that!", "I don't know, should we try to induce vomiting?"; on and on, back and forth we went. Meanwhile, Frost picks himself up, walks over to the couch and sits in front of it... and starts talking. I swear farking talking to the goddamn couch. He'd go: "wauuhauuu wahooo, roaw rooow..." then while still looking at the couch he gave his best 'quizzical dog' look... then: "raaauuoooo, muuaaahhh... wauuuhauuu wawhoooooo".

At that point we decided to join him... our sides were hurting from laughing so hard.

/he was fine, slept like a rock that night and we started hiding it on top of a bookcase. Yet were still worried he'd manage to get to it somehow.
//such a smart baby. I miss him :(
///I still wonder what the couch was saying back to him...

We were worried at first; I know it's pretty much impossible to OD on some friggin' weed, but he was about 3 to 4 months old, and fairly small still (compared to his current 90 pound frame). He didn't do anything other than just lay on his side on the floor, staring off into space. He was basically a zombie, and didn't respond to stimuli (which is why I was freaking out some). I picked him up and held him on the couch for several hours watching TV, making sure he didn't just randomly stop breathing or something...and occasionally cursing him for eating my stash :)

This was my Shepard/Rott mix; luckily my wolf Nikki only steals bread off the counter like a thief in the night. Dante is the one looking incredibly cute in my profile pic..he can be pure evil, but look like such a sweet baby at the same time. He has unfortunately attacked other dogs/people/food. He *does not* go out in public. :(

He is officially the Guard Dog. And the only dog I've ever had to eat my weed :P

/Had a mouse problem back in Indiana, those little bastards snagged my little dime bags and half smoked joints out of the ashtray several times before I figured out what the hell the poltergeists in my house were doing

//all smoke is kept in small, sealed glass jar. For protection, and to preserve freshness.

I can attest to the fact that dogs do not need meat flavor in their beer to enjoy it. A college buddy's Irish Shiatter would knock your beer over and lap it up if you were stupid/drunk enough to set it on the ground.

/ Hey, it was Irish and couldn't help itself

A friend's dog would go after your booze if you left the glass where he could reach it. Of course, he was a scotch collie.

I suppose piss could be called "meat broth".

Have some friends that are part owners of a smallllll brewery and their dogs love the leftover barley from the brewing. They ended up mixing the barley with a couple other ingredients and are selling them as dog treats. My dog also loves them quite a bit, in fact I think I'll go give her a couple.

The Homer Tax: People who like good beer are not necessarily beer snobs. People who look down on people who drink bad beer are beer snobs.

A Beer Connoisseur/Enthusiast/Geek cares about the beer that they drink, a Beer Snob/Jerk/Dick cares about the beer that you drink.


Now THIS....

[bearsrepeating.jpg]

Connoisseur != snob
