This Craft Beer Brewery Gives All Employees Paid 'Paw-Ternity' Leave

RealClear Contributor


You already have plenty of reasons to drink craft beer. Now, one brewery is giving you a great incentive to go work for a company that makes it.

Puppy Love

If you've ever had a new puppy, then you know that BrewDog definitely has the right kind of thinking. They give their employees "paw-ternity leave," a week's worth of vacation for all workers who get a new puppy or a rescued dog in their lives. 


When BrewDog opens its new brewery in Ohio later this year, they will be the first company in the U.S. to offer "paw-ternity" leave, which you can also call "mutt-ternity leave" if you like. BrewDog, based in Scotland, was the first brewery in the U.K. to offer this benefit.

The "paw-ternity" benefit applies to all BrewDog employees, nearly 1,000 in total, all around the world -- including the future employees who will be in the new Columbus brewery. 

Working for BrewDog

"We care about two things above all else: people and beer." - BrewDog co-founder James Watt.

BrewDog's owners have always been dog lovers. The brewery was founded in 2007 by two friends who have worked to make the company as dog-friendly as possible. In addition to the paid puppy leave, staff members at BrewDog bring their dogs to work. 

BrewDog's aim is to be "the best company to work for. Ever." Do you think they're off to a good start? Share this article!
