Beer and Cookies: The Flying Dog Holiday Collection
Craft beer is a revolution that is fueled by equal parts tradition and innovation. And as a result, we've teamed up with Baltimore-based Otterbein’s Bakery on four brand-new, cookie-inspired craft beers that will be released in a holiday 12-pack.
Brewed exclusively for this project, the Flying Dog Holiday Collection will include:
- Imperial Hefeweizen, inspired by and meant to be paired with Otterbein’s Sugar Cookies
- Oatmeal Raisin Stout, inspired by and meant to be paired with Otterbein’s Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
- Oak-Aged Hazelnut Scotch Ale, inspired by and meant to be paired with Otterbein’s Ginger Cookies
- Roasted Peanut Brown Ale, inspired by and meant to be paired with Otterbein’s Chocolate Chip Cookies
Our brewmaster Matt Brophy explained that in developing each of these recipes, we didn’t simply want to recreate the flavors of each cookie. Instead, we used ingredients like specialty-roasted malts and new yeast strains to create flavor profiles that enhance and complement each pairing.
The four beers, alongside their cookie counterparts, will premiere in our taproom on Friday, November 7. Tickets for the beer and cookie pairing are $35 and available now. From there, The Flying Dog Holiday Collection will be available on shelves and on draft starting November 1 exclusively in Maryland.
Santa is going to have something other than milk with his cookies this holiday season.
