Brewers' Spent Grain
Nutritious leftovers of the brewing process; predominately barley
Dried after being used for brewing, and a smell that dogs love
Gives our biscuit shape and real crunch
Helps bind the biscuit and great for dogs
Because dogs love peanut butter!
We've been working with Holly Barker of Sport Dog Nutrition to ensure that we can confidently say that these biscuits are "good for your dog".
Good for the gut
High in fibre which helps promote gut health by promoting water balance in the gut, providing a healthy environment for good bacteria. It will also help firm up poos if that's a problem.
Good for the coat
The fatty acids in linseed will give your dog a shiny coat, whilst the yeast is full of B vitamins, antioxidants, and loads of minerals that will help your dog's skin, hair, eyes and certain organ functions too.
Our recipe gives the Bix some serious crunch. Chewing and crunching releases happy hormones in dogs and promotes calm. The carbohydrates in the biscuit assist a good night's sleep by supporting the production of L-tryptophan.
Healthy treats upcycled from craft brewery leftovers
Spent grain is a bi-product of the brewing process. Many breweries send it to farms for animal feed as it is very nutritious, but that can be difficult for urban breweries. So we started BrewBix to take those nutritious leftovers and turn them into tasty, healthy treats for dogs.
What do our customers say?
For the conscious dog owner
We set out to create a dog treat for the dog owner that cares about their dog's diet, and also cares about their impact on the planet. We've done everything we can to minimise our carbon footprint and be plastic-free, whilst also working closely with a dog nutritionist to ensure we create something that has health benefits for dogs, using simple, natural ingredients.

Money back if your dog doesn't like them!
Our Bix do very well in taste tests, and we are very confident that your dog will love them. So much so that we will give you your money back if they don't!
My dogs go mad for these now! Best treat I've had for them in a long time
Dogs love them and feel like I’m doing something for the planet
Stanley loves the treats and he is usually fussy so this was a great surprise!
My dog loves them, they're good value and eco friendly! What's not to love?
Our dog loves them (even though they’re picky) and size is good for a treat.
I'm Tom, and in 2016 I was involved in setting up Villages, a micro-brewery in south London. Villages was producing about 1 tonne of spent grain per week, most of which was being sent to food waste. Many breweries send/sell it to farms for animal feed, but that was quite difficult for an urban brewery.
So I set up BrewBix to upcycle these nutritious leftovers into healthy treats for dogs!
How many treats do you get in a pouch?
It would take a long time to count. But I'd guess there are close to 100.
What are the ingredients?
There are just 5 natural, plant-based ingredients:
- Wholemeal flour
- Brewers Spent Grain
- Peanut butter
- Brewers Yeast
What is the nutrient content?
Crude Protein 13.7%, Crude Oils & Fats 16.4%, Crude Fibre 3.9%, Crude Ash 2.7%.
Are these suitable for puppies?
All our ingredients are natural, so should be fine for a puppy's tummy. However, they are quite hard/crunchy, so may not be suitable until your puppy has its big teeth. Best to break them up!
Isn't grain bad for dogs?
If your dog has a grain/gluten allergy, then yes, grain will be bad for your dog. But that’s quite uncommon. In fact, your dog is much more likely to be allergic to animal protein!
There is very little evidence to support the grain-free movement, and studies show that some grain in the diet is better than a strict high protein diet.
Are they vegan friendly?
Yes! As dogs seem to love our Bix, we felt no need to add any animal products.
Aren't hops and alcohol dangerous for dogs!
Correct! That's why we make sure there is no alcohol or hops in our Bix. We just take the grain and the brewers yeast (after it has been dried).
Will my dog get drunk?
Afraid not! There is no alcohol in our Bix.
