Brewhaus Dog Bones are handcrafted, small batch, oven baked dog treats made from whole grains proudly sourced from local Cincinnati & Northern KY microbreweries.

School districts in the area participate in the program and use this start to finish non profit business model to help their students with disabilities (typically ages 18-22) learn valuable work and life skills. Students participate in all aspects of the program from planning/forecasting demand, making, baking, labeling and weighing bags, processing orders, attending community sales opportunities, calculating costs, counting money (both cash and credit) from sales and then making bank deposits. Teachers and vocational trainers assist in the process; each stage creates a chance to obtain hands-on experience in math, entrepreneurship, marketing, communication and teamwork. Additionally, Brewhaus has partnered with Graeter’s Ice Cream to create paid employment opportunities!

 

The goal is to eventually have our own freestanding “Brew Bakery” and “Brewhaus Brew Bus” for supported employment and to continue as a vocational training site. Brewhaus hopes to create a micro industry in Cincinnati from the spent grains that will directly benefit people with disabilities.

100% non profit: ALL proceeds go back into growing our program for others to participate! Best of all, your dog will love you for giving a Brewhaus Dog Treat!
