WowDog | BrewDog

We’re super excited here at WowDog HQ to be working with BrewDog to develop a dog treat made with the spent grain from the Ellon brewery.

It was a few months ago that BrewDog got in touch with us and explained that they were looking for a local Company that could produce dog treats using their spent grain as one of the ingredients.

The spent grain is what is left in the mash tun after that stage of the brewing process and normally goes to some very lucky cows up in Ellon who gobble up over 15 tons per week! After getting a sample from the brewery, it was off to the WowDog Development Kitchen to start developing a brand-new recipe.

After a few attempts, we came up with a recipe which we thought would be a winner and then enlisted the help of some of our trusted four-legged testers who consumed all of the treats in record time which was a very good sign.

We also sent a batch to BrewDog for them to test on the office dogs, and they reported a similar phenomenon of the treats apparently disappearing into thin air…

After all the paperwork was done, it was back to BrewDog with a bigger container to collect more spent grain and then back to the kitchen to start baking. The smell of the treats whilst they are being baked gave Mr WowDog a strange feeling that he needed to drink a Punk IPA, so that was arranged as a reward for him once all of the treats had been baked.

The treats only contain Rapeseed Oil, Free-Range Eggs, Oats, BrewDog Spent Grain and Bicarbonate of Soda so are full of lovely natural ingredients as you would expect – and it’s worth mentioning – 0% alcohol!

You can buy Beer Bones from the BrewDog website and from selected BrewDog Bars in the UK as well as from the WowDog Shop.

Deeside Local Food Festival

Deeside Local Food Festival - Wowdog

As the Summer draws to a close, and thoughts start to turn towards Christmas, there’s one last hurrah for the trusty WowDog Gazebo this Sunday when we head to the Deeside Local Food Festival.  In its third year now, the Festival takes place in the very nice surroundings of Cults Academy from 11am – 4pm.  And even better than that, entry to the event is free!

Following his debut at the Huntly Hairst, we were hoping to persuade our new Chief Taster Buddy to put in an appearance.  The adulation from our customers seems to have gone to his head though, and we are still in negotiations over his appearance fee.  Luckily he has agreed to be paid in dog treats, so hopefully we can come to an agreement.

We’ll be outside in the courtyard this year, and here is a sneak preview of what you will be able to find at the WowDog stall;

Standard Range

The full range of our standard festive treats will be available;

Cheese & Oregano Bites

Double Carob Cookies

Honey Oat Bones

Peanut Butter Stars

Luxury Bags

And if you really want to spoil your pooch, then we will have Luxury Bags available.  These contain one bag of each flavour and make an excellent gift.

Handmade Collars & Leads

We will also have a selection of our handmade Collars & Leads.

 

More information on the event can be found by visiting the Deeside Local Food Festival website at https://www.deesidefoodfestival.co.uk/

If you can’t make it along then don’t worry as the entire range will also be available online at http://www.wowdog.co.uk/shop
