BEND, Ore., (UPI) —  An Oregon man said he combined his love of beer with his love for his dog to create a successful product — Dog Grog.

Daniel Keeton of Bend, who works at the Boneyard Brewery’s tasting room, said he designed the non-alcoholic brew for his dog, Lola Jane, and decided to market the product when he saw how much she enjoyed the concoction, KTVZ, Bend, reported Monday.

Keeton said his Dog Grog is made from low-sodium vegetable broth, water, spent grain from Boneyard Brewery and glucosamine. He started bottling and selling the brew in July and his wares are now sold at Visit Bend and Muddy Paw’s retail stores.

“Two things that have become part of the Bend lifestyle are beer and dogs,” Visit Bend chief executive officer Doug LaPlaca said. “So to create something that would take advantage of the two we thought was a brilliant idea.”

Keeton said he recommends serving Dog Grog as a treat on its own or pouring it over some dry dog food. However, he said there are other ways to serve it.

“A couple of my friends who just acquired a puppy are making ice cubes out of it, and it’s helping the puppy with teething,” Keeton said.
