MINNESOTA, USA — From rescue dog to beer can beauty, a round of "ap-paws" is in order for the winner of Busch Beer's Bark Bracket.

Congratulations to Kira, a rescue pup from Perham, Minnesota, for being voted to appear on more than 40,000 cans of Busch's Dog Brew!

Kira was given a new "leash" on life after she was found in a ditch by local police when she was just 3 weeks old. Her family fell in love with her at the local Humane Society and they brought Kira home the next day.

Described as a "fun-loving goof," you can find Kira's wide-eyed, droopy-tongued headshot on cans of a new Dog Brew flavor this fall.

And just to clarify, yes - Busch Dog Brew is meant for dogs.

According to Anheuser Busch, Dog Brew is all-natural and made with vegetables, herbs, spices, water, and pork broth "to provide your best buddy with a nutritious and tasty snack that helps to promote a healthy digestive system."

Kira beat out Brew, a 10-year-old American bulldog mix rescue, for the win. But if you ask us, the runner-up sounds like a pretty good boy, too. Brew's owner says he got his name because he's the best drinking buddy around.
