“Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy” – Benjamin Franklin and “Dogs are a Man’s Best Friend”…SO, why not combine our love of beer and dogs to create the ultimate treat: Spent Grain Dog Biscuits.

Spent Grain Dog Treats

For those of you who homebrew on a somewhat regular basis, you’ve got lots of left over grain from the mash. Instead of throwing it away, why not use it to create a treat for your pup or your friend’s pups?If you are not a homebrewer, ask your local brewery for their spent grain and on the day that it is ready, just show up with a huge tupperware dish and dig in!Not only is the smell delightful (like your Grandma’s homemade oatmeal), but we can reuse this stuff for farm feed and baking!
