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.
