Beer for dogs exists, marking the next logical step in the evolving bond between man and canine: Dogs will become our drinking buddies. Pretty soon, we won't need to make human friends at all.

The trend in so-called dog beer has cropped up across America, with a handful of companies making canned drinks that look like beer but are safe for pups. One company in particular, Good Boy Dog Beer in Houston, has three types of dog beer on the market—called "IPA A Lot in the Yard," "Session...Squirrel!" and "Mailman Malt Licker," because yes, there are still good things in this world—with another on the way called "Crotch Sniffin' Ale."

Why call it beer? "We use a lot of the same equipment a brewery does. We just skip the fermentation process," Rocky's owner Megan Long told USA Today. Plus, Americans are suckers for spending buckets of cash on their dogs as well as large sums on alcoholic beverages. It just makes sense.

In the same way that three beers at the bar on Friday night does not count as Friday night dinner, Good Boy's cans of dog beer, which cost $5 each, are not meal substitutes for dogs. Nor is dog beer a substitute for human beer, because it won't taste good. But that doesn't mean you can't enjoy a cold brew with your dog, who is also enjoying a cold brew of its own, thus cementing the bond between man and his best friend.
