Our Dog Treats
Beer only has four ingredients so why should our dog treats be any different? You like beer; dogs like treats! Proof that it’s not complicated to make something wonderful to both drink and eat. Our treats are handcrafted with four natural wholesome, nutritious ingredients: spent brewery barley malt grains, natural peanut butter, brown rice flour (made from the whole rice grain, healthier, for ease of digestion and lower allergen risk) and eggs. Our eggs and, of course, our spent brewery grains are locally sourced. In fact, our grains are picked up on brewing days to insure the highest freshness and quality. We coordinate with our brewing partners to get grains right from the mash tun which are the main ingredient in our unique dog treats!
Eggs for the Brewhaus program are sourced locally too. Really locally. A short walk down the street, my neighbor and good friend, Margie, has a lovely flock of chickens in her backyard and sells eggs. Her hens are cage and cruelty free, free to forage for insects and other yummy morsels in the soil, and are fed a natural, pesticide free diet (her son Troy grows the corn on his farm for their food!) Her big, fluffy, sweet dog, Romeo, protects the flock but he secretly wants to eat them! It’s a constant moral dilemma! Egg production is based on three main factors: the breed of chicken (which also affects shell color), age, and season. Typically, a young healthy chicken will lay an egg about once a day; variation is based on natural light and season. Hens lay more in the summer, less in winter. Not only does this amazing 80 yr old lady provide our program with dozens of big beautiful eggs, but she is also a devoted teacher of special needs adults and children within her church.
Natural peanut butter and brown rice flour are then added, treats are shaped and slow oven baked, and you have a tasty treat for your dog! People have even tried our treats but we have to tell you, they’re just for dogs! This is usually after a beer or two….
