FROM BEER GRAIN TO DOG TREATS: SUSTAINABLE DOG TREAT COMPANY ANNOUNCES PARTNERSHIPS WITH BREWING INDUSTRY GIANTS 


Dog treat company announces official, nationwide partnerships with key players of the brewing industry.


Milwaukee, WI, Oct. 25, 2018 - Leashless Lab, a Milwaukee-based company that repurposes spent brewing grain to produce dog treats, officially announces nine partnerships with nationwide, well renowned entities in the craft brewing industry. The partnership involves distributing Leashless Lab’s all-natural, sustainably-sourced dog treats at each participating organization. Partners include Founders Brewing, Surly Brewing, New Glarus Brewing Co., Terrapin Beer Co., Lakefront Brewery, Central Waters Brewing Co., Capital Brewery, Raised Grain Brewing Company, and Black Husky Brewing.


Leashless Lab is a brewing-inspired solution to waste reduction by repurposing brewing grain into dog treats. The four-ingredient treats are locally sourced and all natural, as well as nonalcoholic with no hop contact. The company donates 10% of the profits from each bag of treats sold to an animal protection organization. Leashless Lab uses ingredients from the community to directly benefit that community, making it the first in its industry to yield a product while dynamically reducing waste.


Nikki Collier, founder of Leashless Lab, says that the company is a serendipitous blend of her love for craft beer and dogs. Collier’s husband Kevin Goss’ beer brewing hobby led to the creation of the premier product. After being left with a surplus of wet, fresh grains, the couple established a mission to effectively repurpose the byproduct. As beer lovers and dog lovers, treats for their yellow lab, Tonka, were Nikki and Kevin’s obvious choice. “Other pet companies focus heavily on using all-natural, wholesome ingredients. However, no one has yet positioned themselves in the marketplace with the appended goal to maximize sustainability while also giving back to the community,” says Collier. “Leashless Lab is the solution to that.”


Commenting on the partnership, Collier said, “we are proud to collaborate with the craft beer community, an industry that champions a more sustainable environment, their local dog organizations, and the neighborhoods they brew in.”
