Daniel Keeton’s doggie brew business has been years in the making. But until last summer, his only customer was his dog, Lola Jane. After we profiled Dawg Grog Sunday night, success came to Keeton — literally overnight.
“I had absolutely no idea this was going to be as big as it is right now,” Keeton said Wednesday.
Keeton currently sells his product only at two Bend retailers, Visit Bend and Muddy Paws Bathhouse on Bend’s Westside. But now, orders are coming in from across the country.
“Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, LA, Chicago and New York,” Keeton said, naming just a few…
His product also happens to be “green.” One of the main ingredients in Dawg Grog is a byproduct from the brewery Keeton works at.
Boneyard Brewmaster Tony Lawrence explained what Keeton uses from the brewery.
“Towards the tail end of this process, we have leftover wort, and that used to go down the drain,” Lawrence said.
Keeton combines the brewery’s wort with water, vegetable broth and glucosamine to make his canine concoction…
Dawg Grog can be served alone as a treat or over dry dog food. One thing to point out: Keeton makes the brew on his own, it’s completely his own creation. Boneyard Brewery only provides the wort that goes into it.

The TV station covering this
tail tale must have nervous lawyers on retainer. They make certain a couple of times that we know the brew is non-alcoholic and NOT made by the Boneyard Brewery.
