...and a pint for the dog, please!

A brewery in the Netherlands has recently launched a new beer aimed at bringing relief to thirsty dogs.

Kwispelbier, (kwispel means ‘wagging a tail’!) described as ‘a beer for your best friend’, is made from a special brew of beef extract and malt. The drink is the creation of 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...you never know though, it may catch on!
