Awesome Pet Products

Brewscuits

Brewscuits® beer grain dog bones began in May of 2013 in Telford, PA when our dog Tiki stole some spent beer grains off our picnic table that were meant to go to the compost bin. We are home brewers and with the left-over grains we created Brewscuits®.

One weekend we brewed a batch of beer and when we were finished we took the spent grains outside and put them on the picnic table to go to the compost bin. We forgot about the grains and let our dogs outside and Tiki stole the grains off the table pulled them onto the patio and shared them with all the other dogs.

Brewscuits® contain only four ingredients spent beer grain, egg, flour, and either peanut butter, pumpkin or sweet potato. We use local farm fresh eggs, local peanut butter and local grown pumpkin and sweet potato. Brewscuits® contain no sugar, salt, additives or preservatives. And keep your eye out for new flavors!

Since we foster, rescue and take care of military family dogs it gets a little crazy in our household. Creating Brewscuits® allowed us to provide our dogs with something nutritionally sound and also up cycle a product that would normally be discarded. We work with local breweries and craft Brewscuits from their spent grain. We bring the grain back to the bakery and process it into dough to make Brewscuits®.

Events

3rd Annual Howl-O-Ween Pet Parade
Ciscoe Park- 199 Montgomery Ave. Glenside, PA 19038

You and your dog can help make the 3rd Howl-O-Ween Pet Parade even better. Get dressed up, catch up with old doggie friends and meet new ones, and raise even more money for Sam’s Hope, which is based right here in Wyndmoor. The funds raised at last year’s event helped provide home-delivered pet food and supplies to poor homebound & elderly pet owners in Montgomery, Bucks and Philadelphia Counties.
