Owner and founder of Fossil Bed Brewery Dave Walker, 39, reportedly struggled Saturday to find a way to work his 5-year-old Labrador retriever mix into the name of a new spiced winter ale. “I was going to just call it Puppy Weizen, but that’s kind of impersonal, and technically it’s not a wheat beer,” said Walker, who has so far failed to find a name that captures both his pet’s personality and the distinct raisin and pepper flavoring of the microbrew. “I have to do something to make it stand out on the shelf alongside Flying Dog, Sea Dog, Turbodog, Smuttynose Old Brown Dog, and Dogfish Head.” At press time, Walker had yet to figure out how make his dog, Barley, a part of the beer’s name.
