The common name for Two Dogs Brewing Company
. They make Two Dogs Lemon Brew
, Two Dogs Orange Brew
, and Two Dogs Apple Brew
. All three are said to be made from Duncan MacGillivray
's original recipe. The Lemon Brew
is the companies Flagship product. The tale behind the beer
says that Duncan MacGillivray
, an owner of a small brewery
, was having a beer
with some friends that owned a lemon
farm. They commented on wondering what to do with all their lemons that they couldn't sell due to size. Duncan said "I'll try brewing them." He soon had a truck of lemon
s on his hands and went to work brewing them. The result was a beer that started selling pretty well. Now Duncan was faced with marketing and selling the beer and had to come up with a name. All he could think of was the punch line to a joke he had heard. Thus Two Dogs Brewing Company
as born. You will also notice a "Why Do You Ask?
" on the bottle, it is also part of the joke.
You can now find the Two Dogs products in many countries. And it's alcohol content is about 4%.
see www.twodogs.com for more info about the company and to see "the joke" illustrated. It is a very unfunny joke so I'm not even going to bother telling it here.
My personal opinion of this beer is that it closely tastes like lemonade. It is a good beer for a hot day. I can't drink too many in a row without getting sick of it. About 3 or 4 is all I can handle before I need to switch to drinking something else. I've heard the Orange brew compared to Orange soda, but I couldn't really remember what orange soda tasted like the one time I've tried it.
