Beer brewers steep grain (in our case 100% barley) in water through a process called “mashing.” They then take the water to make beer, leaving behind the delicious barley (spent grain). Inspired by our rescue dog named Barley, we decided to take the spent grain and turn it into dog treats.
Since creating Barley Labs, we adopted another rescue dog – a Border Collie mix named Hops. He’s smaller than Barley but adds quite a bit of flavor to the team, much like the small amount of maple syrup we add to these treats.
That’s why we call these dog treats Mutt Mash. “Mutt” in honor of our two rescue mutts. “Mash” for the process in which we get the grain.
