In the animal kingdom, man's best friend has always been the faithful dog. Our four legged friends have been companions of humankind for thousands of years. Through thick and thin, the dog has always been loath to leave its master's side. It's a sad then, when dogs are left in the house to yammer as their owners nip out for drinks without them, but now there is no excuse.
A pub in Newcastle has ensured
that canines never have to leave their owners side, unveiling a brand new beer designed for doggies. Never will a dog have to be left at home while the owner sneaks out for a quick pint or two, as the The Brandling Villa in South Gosforth, Newcastle, has designed a menu for exclusively for pets. So if one dog owner gets hungry and orders a meal, his pet need not be be left out, as there is also the option of a roast dinner for canines smothered in what has been described as cat flavoured gravy. Contains no cat.
The pub has received rave reviews for the quirky take on dog focused cuisine, as it tries to add a modern twist to the traditional pub layout. This includes expanding its list of clientele to dog owners and creating an atmosphere that the animals can enjoy too.
The landlord was tired of serving water to every animal that passed through his door and so decided to try something a bit strange and quirky, by adding pooches to the craft beer revolution. The beverage is non-alcoholic of course, so there will be no funny business on the dog's behalf after a bowl or two, and definitely no leering after the barmaid.
The beer is still made up of the base ingredients of beer, malt and hops, but there is also a meaty syrup added for extra flavour. But it seems being a dog is thirsty business, as the Brandling Villa have had to replenish their stocks after the first 48 bottles were snaffled up in the first two weeks.
