The other week, I was delighted to discover a brew by the Maine Beer Company that was named after a cat. Well, it turns out that was just a mere fiber in the great feline-beer nexus — as proved by an Instagram account called Cats on Tap, which is all about spotlighting the marvelous relationship between kitties and craft brews.
Here’s a photo-based peek into this very sophisticated world, where hops and catnip commingle and good times ensue.
Pictured here is Milly, one of the official Cats on Tap kitties. She’s perusing a fine selection of bottled brews sourced from Oregon.
When it comes to weekday lunch and lounge sessions, this classy kitty takes it up a notch with a Japanese rice lager.
Lagunitas IPA was a popular beer and it still is — as these aspiring hop hounds are fast discovering.
We’ve all been there — and this fine salted mango chili sour from the Paradox Beer Company is a distinguished way to pass out.
Move over Maru — from now on the only acceptable cat-in-a-box action involves beer cases.
See how this resourceful kitty has turned a discarded Sixpoint cardboard case into a tailored cat fort?
The beer-fort principle works when you’re drunk, too.
And there are no rules about the number of beer forts you can stack together, as these dinky fans of Shiner’s low-cal Light Blonde brew prove.
This black beauty is in awe at the combination of the pro-level beer glass on offer and the alliteration of the London-based Beavertown’s Black Betty Black IPA.
This impeccably groomed kitty is starting to suspect that he’s not getting a full imperial pint of beer.
This ambitious go-getter is smartly calling it a day as he retires to sup from a can of one of the Forgotten Boardwalk’s Curious Ales.
