This National Beer Day, We Raise a Glass to Our Brewery Partners.
Portland Pet Food Company wouldn't be where we are today without our brewery partners, who allow us to create our sustainable, local and natural brew dog biscuits.
Brew biscuits don’t include any alcohol, but feature spent grain from local partners.
After the liquid sugars, proteins and nutrients have been extracted through the brewer's mashing process, spent grain is what’s left of malt. Spent grain can account for 85% of a brewery’s total by-product and lead to major waste when disposed of improperly. You can compost spent grain or give it to farms as feed. The versatile material can also be dried and used as a replacement or in addition to traditional flour in baked goods, like our biscuits!
Coalition Brewery has been a Portland Pet Food Company partner since the very beginning. Known for their innovative beers, they’ve helped create our biscuits by providing us with some of their spent grain. Coalition shares our belief that local economy support begins with sourcing regional ingredients. Their malt (which becomes our spent grain) is from Great Western Malting, right across the river in Vancouver, Wa. Coalition is in taprooms and growler fill stations across the Pacific Northwest and recently re-opened their outside patio for Summer fun!
Shop all our biscuits here- it’s the closest you’ll get to sharing a beer with your pup.
