House Hippos build their nests in refrigerators using hops, malt, and yeast. The nests have to be comfortable and cool, since House Hippos taste best chilled.

Superlative Dedication | Triple Dog Dare

We know you never back down. When a warning says “don’t try this at home” there’s a chance you’ve already done it. It’s honestly getting a bit out of hand, but we respect the dedication. This triple IPA is all about that dedication, so we made it in collaboration with Dog Island Brewing because it takes all the power we have to make a Triple Dog Dare for the person who never backs down.

Let’s Start the Party | Raise The Woof Kentucky Common

See this beer name is clever for a few reasons. First and foremost, “Raise the Woof” sounds like “Raise the Roof” which is a fine joke on its own.

They have dogs!” BUT IT GETS BETTER. “Raise the Woof” is also a double entendre for partying, and for raising a dog you’ve adopted.
