Dog beer?

    Pet shop owner creates beer for dogs

    AMSTERDAM, Netherlands - After a long day hunting, there's nothing like wrapping your paw around a cold bottle of beer. So Terrie Berenden, a pet shop owner in the southern Dutch town of Zelhem, created a beer for her Weimaraners made from beef extract and malt.

    "Once a year we go to Austria to hunt with our dogs, and at the end of the day we sit on the verandah and drink a beer. So we thought, my dog also has earned it," she said.

    Berenden consigned a local brewery to make and bottle the nonalcoholic beer, branded as Kwispelbier. It was introduced to the market last week and advertised it as "a beer for your best friend."

    "Kwispel" is the Dutch word for wagging a tail.

    The beer is fit for human consumption, Berenden said. But at euro1.65 ($2.14) a bottle, it's about four times more expensive than a Heineken.

    Two questions:
    1. Why is dog beer four times more expensive than regular beer?
    B. Why would anyone pay four times as much for dog beer when dogs love regular beer?

    Ray Kinsella: So what do you want?
    Terence Mann: I want them to stop looking to me for answers, begging me to speak again, write again, be a leader. I want them to start thinking for themselves. I want my privacy.
    Ray Kinsella: No, I mean, what do you WANT?
    [Gestures to the concession stand they're in front of]
    Terence Mann: Oh. Dog and a beer.
