How the III Dachshunds Beer & Cider got started
One day, with some prompting and pressure from my soon-to-be wife, I decided to get a dog, (preferably a dachshund since that is what the wife desired). I had never had a dog, but decided to take a chance. I found the first of the III Dachshunds in an animal shelter in Elkhorn Wisconsin. Her name was Lillie. One month later, we ended up getting a second little one seeing how much joy the first had brought us. In comes Otto – that little rascal of a boy. Another month goes by and we hear about a little girl named Sophie who is in a dachshund rescue in Illinois – the poor thing was found as a stray and we found ourselves unable to say no for the third time. Dogs in Blankets So the trifecta was now complete! Lillie, Otto and Sophie are the complete inspiration for this company. After having the dogs for about a year I realized how many similarities there were between the dachshund and beer – such as names. For example, our dogs have the “smooth red” coat or there’s a “black and tan” coat, what great names for beer! And from that point on it has been a complete explosion of ideas which has resulted in this beer company. The beer in now exclusively sold at City Lounge in Cudahy, Wisconsin. Soon enough though we hope to have the beer bottled for more “mass” distribution, hopefully it’ll be in a bar/store near you soon!
