Do It For The Agri-Culture

Decades from now, we’ll tell our grandchildren tales of our swashbuckling glory days in Maryland craft beer. We’ll sing the names of “Willamette,” “Sorachi Ace," and “Vojvodina,” ancient deities, pillars in our mythos, like mighty Zeus himself. And all of our stories will hit their crescendos in the year 2019. For two years, we toiled in the fields of Keedysville. We raised our fickle hop vines... Read More

Skillful In Shallow Waters

Skillful In Shallow Waters

Skillful in shallow waters, yet adept when it becomes deep and rough, Dead Rise boats were crafted to navigate the unique waterways of the Chesapeake.  Much like its namesake, Dead Rise OLD BAY Summer Ale, was expertly designed to satisfy the unique palate of the Marylander. The beer began as a pitch by a brewer at one of Flying Dog’s first Brewhouse Rarities summits. Every employee, no matter his or her job description, is g... Read More

But The Women Keep The Tempo

March 8th has quickly become an incredibly important and eventful day for us here at the brewery. Yes, it’s International Women’s Day, but, in the craft beer community, it’s also Pink Boots Collaboration Brew Day. Women from all over the globe get together, build each other up, and brew some delicious beer. For Tenacious V, our day started bright and early with a yoga class led by our quality assurance manager and consiste... Read More

You Get A Trophy! And You Get A Trophy!!!

Under Dog Gold Lager is the best kind of lightweight. Weighing in at 3.9% ABV and just 116 calories, it’s the perfect beer for those who want to enjoy an adult beverage (or several) and still, you know, continue to function in society. Yes, that means you’ll be able to do some day drinking without the afternoon nap. And, as if everyone needed another reason to love an underdog, this beer comes with some seriously good karma:...

Ain't Nothing But A G Thing

  Flying Dog lost a huge piece of its collective heart last month with the unexpected passing of Gerald “G" Bigelow.  G was so much more than a coworker. He always laughed at our jokes, and he spent hours of his free time patiently teaching a rowdy, inebriated bunch of mutts how to play D&D. He was our friend, our brother, and our Dungeon Master, and we miss him more than any words written here can convey. ... Read More

Funky Vojvodina

Our hop research partnership with the University of Maryland’s College of Agriculture and Natural Resources was never intended to be anything close to a pet project.  In 2016, we set off with a specific, ambitious goal: Find out what it takes to grow hops of the same caliber, in both quality and yield, of those grown in traditional hop-growing regions, and grow them in Maryland. And now, armed with two harvests worth of experienc... Read More

When The Family Feuds, Make Them Family Drama Carnitas

Clashing political views. Less-than-ideal sleeping situations. Your brother-in-law's newest "investment opportunity" pitch. Gift cards when you could really just use some cash. The holidays will push both your fridge capacity and your patience to the brink, and, while we can't get your grandpa to stop talking about how much you've "filled out," we can suggest a coping strategy with a pretty high success r...

Establish Dominance By Adding GONZO Imperial Porter To Your Brownies

Literally, every day of the year is now some sort of Instagram-friendly, short-enough-for-a-hashtag holiday of ambiguous origin. And so, on this December the 8th, we reverently gather to celebrate the joyous day of the brownie. Yes, most people will simply google "brownie recipe" and end up on the blog of some lady named Judy. She owns a DSLR, and she's never met a handwritten font she didn't like. Those peo... Read More

And the Living's Easy

We've defended free speech and creative expression in the United States for more than 25 years. Now, we're taking a stand in the UK. Here's what you need to know: The Portman Group is a third-party watchdog group that evaluates alcohol-related marketing in the UK, and it was founded by big beer and spirits behemoths (think Heineken, Guinness, Bacardi, Molson, Carlsberg and InBev). In May 2018, the Portman Gr... Read More
