Dogs Lottie and Grizzly live in Ontario Canada with owner

Two Dogs was created in 1993 by the Australian brewer Duncan MacGillivray. The tale behind the drink says that MacGillivray, an owner of a small brewery and pub in Australia, was having a beer with some friends who owned a lemon farm. They mentioned that they didn’t know what to do with all their lemons that they couldn’t sell due to size. Duncan said “I’ll try brewing them. ” He soon had a truck of lemons on his hands and went to work brewing them. The result was a drink that started selling pretty well. Now Duncan was faced with marketing and selling the beer and had to come up with a name. All he could think of was the punch line to a joke he had heard. Thus Two Dogs brewing company was born. There was a “Why Do You Ask?” on the bottle. This was also part of the joke.
