Bowser Beer and The Bear & The Rat Call for Beer & Ice Cream Pairings...For Dogs

By: The Bear & The Rat, Bowser Beer
BOULDER, Colo. - Sept. 1, 2016 - PRLog -- In appreciation of the beer and ice cream pairing trend as well as a nod to Oktoberfest, Bowser Beer and The Bear & The Rat have partnered together to launch a month-long social media contest asking dog owners to pair Bowser Beer, a "beer for dogs" and The Bear & The Rat – an "ice cream" or more specifically, a frozen yogurt for dogs. In order to win one of three prize packs, the entrants need to take a photo of their pairings and tag the brands on Instagram (@BowserBeer and @TheBearAndTheRat). At the end of September, the owners of Bowser Beer and The Bear & The Rat will judge the entries on creativity, originality, and fun. Winners will be announced the first of October.

While beer and frozen treats for dogs may seem offbeat, safe food alternatives for dogs is a trend on the rise due to the humanization of dogs and a growing number of people treating their dogs as members of the family. Bowser Beer and The Bear & The Rat products are marketed as a healthful alternative to beer and ice cream, respectively. Bowser Beer for dogs contains vitamin B-rich malt barley and glucosamine for healthy joins while The Bear & The Rat's frozen treats contain billions of live and active probiotic cultures to promote fresh breath, soothe tummy troubles and maintain overall immunity. Both products are a cleaner, healthier version to the people version. For example, Bowser Beer products contains no salt, preservatives, common dog allergens or hops as hops are toxic to dogs, and The Bear & The Rat's products contain no added sugars, preservatives or common dog allergens. Also, both product lines are produced in regulated facilities where human food products are made.

The two companies collaborated on three beer & ice cream for dogs pairings and created an infographic which they'll use to spread the word about the creative pairings for dogs:

1.  Porky Pug Porter & Bacon Peanut Butter Frozen Yogurt – The "Salty" Dog

Smokey, nutty bacon peanut butter frozen yogurt with the full-bodied porky pug porter is a guilt-free match in pork heaven.

2.  Cock-A-Doodle Brew & Pumpkin Frozen Yogurt – The Orange Eye

The warm, homey taste of cinnamon & pumpkin yogurt pairs beautifully with juicy, savory Cock-A-Doodle Brew.

3.  Beefy Brown Ale & Banana Peanut Butter Frozen Yogurt – The Brown Banana

The rich, bold flavor of beef with the crisp banana & peanut butter yogurt creates a surprisingly refreshing and addictive treat.


About Bowser Beer

3 Busy Dogs, Inc. is based in Seattle, WA and the maker of Bowser Beer for dogs, named for the original 3 'busy' dogs who helped taste test this into the market. It was created by Jenny Brown with a beef flavor, followed by chicken, and in 2015 pork. Maintaining very high quality standards is important, so only human grade USDA meat is used, along with the finest malt barley and a bit of glucosamine for joint health. Always made from scratch with no salt or fat, it is a healthy and fun beer alternative for dogs. All ingredients and packaging are made in the US. Once found only in pet stores, bars and restaurants now stock it for their canine customers too. Creative pet owners serve it over kibble or straight up, but after discovering that it makes great popsicles, pairing it with ice cream was the next delicious idea. Cats love it too. We share the love on social media, using @bowserbeer , #bowserbeer , or See for a personalized beer with your dog.
