Flying Dog At A Glance
The Year of the Snake Dog IPA
Through fear, man has come to know the serpent. It is crafty. It has conviction. Drink, our brethren, and celebrate the Year of the Snake.
Flying Dog's resident hop monster - big citrus hop aroma with caramel malt, perfect for pairing with spicy Mexican or Thai foods.
The Gonzo Connection
Amongst a host of other exploits, Hunter S. Thompson and Flying Dog founder George Stranahan rode motorcycles, shot guns, talked politics, got drunk and blew shit up.
Hunter’s greatest contribution to Flying Dog was introducing George to Ralph Steadman, the sick and twisted Gonzo artist behind all the label art. Ralph’s first label - for Road Dog Porter - threw Flying Dog into a five year legal battle over the words “Good Beer, No Shit”. The minute the beer was yanked from the shelves in certain parts America for profanity, Flying Dog knew they'd found their guy.
The Flying Dog Story
In 1990, George Stranahan founded the Flying Dog Brewpub in Aspen, Colorado. From that brewpub to a full-fledged Denver brewery in 1994, and then on to the current state-of-the-art brewing facility in Frederick, Maryland, Flying Dog continues - somehow - to make sense.
