Dogs may be man’s best friend, but one self-titled “ideas man” is trying to register a much different companion as his service animal.
Floyd Hayes of Brooklyn, New York has registered a pint of beer as his emotional support animal, according to Ale Street News. The site says Hayes describes the beer as a “16 oz, lightly hopped session IPA served in a regular bar pint glass.”
“I’m not permitted a dog in my building, so I thought an emotional support beer would be more appropriate,” Hayes said. “It helps alleviate my anxiety and is a cost effective way to manage stress.”
“It’s a delicious beer and at a reasonable 5% abv, can be consumed without hindering hand-eye coordination, mental ability or judgement. I’ve had trouble trying to take the pint onto public buses and into places of business, so I had the idea to get it registered,” he said.
The pint of beer is reportedly registered on the USA Service Dog Registration website under registration number 1085780890.
