Title: We need your brew dog photos!
Post by: jill on June 11, 2012, 06:27:13 PM
Hi all,

The September/October issue of Zymurgy will have an article on Brew Dogs and we're planning to use some reader-submitted photos to go along with it. Do you have a four-legged, tail-wagging brewing assistant? If so, send a photo of your brew dog in action for possible inclusion to zymurgy@brewersassociation.org. Images should be in jpeg format, at least 3" x 5", and high resolution (at least 300 dpi). The size of the photo should not exceed 4MB. Please include your name, city/state, and the name of your canine companion(s). The deadline to send photos is June 20.

Thanks in advance!

Jill Redding
Editor-in-Chief, Zymurgy

If that was the only story, I might agree with you.  But there is a lot of other content in there, too.  Besides, you don't just subscribe to the mag.  It's a benefit you get from supporting the organization and its efforts.

my dog starts out hanging with me, then he gives me a look like "is this it?" and asks to go inside   ::)

The neighbors cat on the other hand watches the boil for me.

Haha, so true! My dog is in it while I am mashing in, at which point he goes crazy! After that it is pretty much nap time or bone chewing for my little English Bulldog :)

my dogs know that magic happens in the kitchen.  especially when they see the egg carton come out, they know that ham, cheese and all the wonders of the universe are about to appear

When I brew in the backyard, my (indoor only) cat will get to the windowsill nearest the kettle and stare at me. My girlfriend's cat gets to the next best viewpoint and cries for me to come inside. It's pretty funny.

My little buddy Maximus Lincoln loves to hang out and nap nearby while I'm brewing hoping to snag some grain or a drop of wort.  He's also the reason I don't need a drip tray on the kegerator.

you gotta watch that, hops and dogs don't mix. There are some dogs that will have a very nasty reaction to hops, Hyperthermia if I a) recall correctly and b) was correctly informed.

However I beleive it's like chocolate and dogs, some dogs are okay others not so much.

But, hops and dogs are two of my favorite things!
Seriously though, he doesn't go for whole hops or pellets.  He's more of a grain dog. I don't let him have it but man does he get excited when the mill comes out. Before I was aware of his affinity for grain I left a bucket of freshly milled grist down on his level, when I returned to the garage I found him ears deep just going for it. When he looked up he looked like Al Pacino on a bender.  As for beer he only gets a couple drips from the tap a time so his dosage is miniscule but he's right there every time. He'll even get up from a nap if he thinks I'm heading for the garage.

I think the bigger concern is with spent hops left lying around.

WTF, I'm posting the "share this via.." URL from flickr. Anyone know what I'm doing wrong in trying to post a photo?

Mod Edit: fixed it for you
Thanks Drew! What the heck, I was able to follow your edits using the HTML, there's gotta be an easier way.

I tried teaching him that trick with cans but he kept unintentionally shotgunning them. His registered name is indeed "Roger Wilco" Aviation nerd to go along with the beer nerdiness
