Take a careful look around your favorite beer shop and you’ll notice something. Cats. Lots of cats. Their images are all over the labels, they lend their name to breweries, to specific beers…it’s as if the craft beer world is obsessed with kitty cats. A lot of times, those cats have lasers coming out of their eyes. I don’t know why. And this cat obsession isn’t just a recent phenomenon. Apparently, brewers have historically kept cats around their breweries to keep mice at bay. Today, thanks to proper sanitation and inspection measures, cats are less of a necessity, and more of a good luck charm. Sort of the unofficial pet of craft beer. And who doesn’t love a good kitty cat picture? So, in honor of the mighty feline, we’ve picked some of the most bad ass cats ever to appear on beer labels. Yes, some of them have lasers.
