Which Beer is Your Dog Breed?


Raise a Glass to Dogs this Oktoberfest

If an ideal spouse is like fine wine — getting better with age — then an ideal dog is like a cold beer: friendly, playful, and just what you needed. In honor of Oktoberfest, we’ve matched 5 popular dog breeds with the brews that are most like them.

1. English Bulldog = English Cream Ale


Both the English Bulldog and this English beer are lighter and more playful than expected, and whether they’re more assertive or laid-back really depends on how they were raised.

2. Labrador Retriever = India Pale Ale (IPA)


IPAs had to last the longer voyage to India, so they were made with extra hops. Both they and Labs are extra-hearty, made to be man’s best friend, and have a bouncy personality.

3. German Shepherd = Hefeweizen


Of course no celebration of Oktoberfest would be complete without Germany’s favorite beer, and favorite dog! German Shepherds are a lovely color mix that remind us of clove and bananas — two frequent flavors of this dependable beer.

4. Beagle = Oatmeal Stout


With notes of caramel and chocolate, and a silky texture, both Beagle dogs and these dark beers are of hardy stock, even if they are known for being short and “stout.”

5. Golden Retriever = Pilsner


Whether they’re more a straw-blonde or a deeper golden, both the Golden Retriever and the Pilsner are loved far and wide for their touch of sweetness and how easy they are to handle.
