Venkman hasn’t got much use for beer, but he likes to nap on the cardboard cases. And he has a cool cat posse. They’re so popular that some people take the tour at Chicago’s Empirical Brewery just to see them.
Cats are not the animals people traditionally think of when the word “work” comes up. While many dogs are ready and willing to be trained in specific duties, cats are much better at doing what they want, when they want, where they want. However, if they find something they like to do, they will shine.
So what do cats, rats, grain, and beer have in common besides the makings of a good bar joke? Well, believe it or not, it’s no laughing matter for many breweries as rats find the grain used to make the favored brew most delicious.
