Ralph Steadman described it as “nectar imprisoned in a bottle.” The State of Michigan deemed it “detrimental to the health, safety, and welfare of the general public.”

We call it Raging Bitch. And now, you can experience it like never before:

Raging Bitch available now in 12-packs exclusively in Maryland. Use our Beer Finder to find it near you

In preparation for our first Summer Sessions concert — featuring of Montreal with Us & Us Only opening — we’re slamming 5-Hour Energy, burning lavender-infused incense, and starring into the eyes of a mannequin with puffy pink pubic hair. 

We’ve also compiled this handy list of FAQs for tomorrow’s show:

1. Will tickets be available at the door? 

Tickets are $20 each and sales are ongoing. There may be a limited amount of tickets available at the door, but we can’t guarantee it. Buy now or get here early

2. Is the show outside? Will it be held rain or shine?

Yes and yes. Only the stage is covered, but with the 0% chance of precipitation we’re looking at, we think you’ll be just fine. (We’re also knocking on wood.) 

3. Is this an all-ages show?

NO. Only those 21 and older with a valid ID will be admitted. That’s the law. And that include babies and small children, even if they’re strapped to your chest and/or attached with a leash. 

4. Are all tickets general admission?

Yes. All spots are first come, first serve.  

5. Where do I park?

Parking is on our brewery grounds. Attendants will be on-site all day to direct and showcase of an array of neon-colored vests. 

6. Is outside food or drink allowed? 

NOPE AND NOPE. Aside from our delicious beers, no other alcoholic beverages can be consumed or served on our brewery grounds by law. Kick ass food, along with water and soda, will be available for purchase from the kick ass food trucks we have lined up

7. So, what’s the deal with beer?

All beer is a la carte and available for purchase for $4 each. From Bloodline Blood Orange IPA to a specialty cask of Raging Bitch Belgian-Style IPA with mango and habanero, our beer list is a doozy.

8. Are pets allowed?

NO. Trust us, they will have a much better time sneaking onto your bed and taking a long nap than they will dodging beer bellies and beards.

9. Is photography and video allowed? 

Yes, as long as it is not professional. Amateur photos and footage for fun, shits, and giggles are welcomed and encouraged. While you’re at it, share it with your friends and ours on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram

10. I plan on drinking responsibly, but what if I need a cab? Hotel room?

We’ve got you covered. Here’s a list of who to call and where to stay.

Why is he making this film? What does he know about filmmaking? How is he going to make this film awesome? And why does he need money? We’ll let him answer that for himself

77 Years of Creative Genius

“Every time we receive label art from Ralph we’re like kids on Christmas morning, and the artwork for Raging Bitch was extra special to us because it was for a beer commemorating Flying Dog’s 20th anniversary. We absolutely loved it from the moment we saw it.”

Our CEO Jim Caruso offered these sentiments in the foreword of a recently published 160-page catalog of Ralph Steadman’s work, including the original art for Raging Bitch Belgian-Style IPA.  Presented by the London Cartoon Museum, STEADman @ 77 is a retrospective of Ralph’s work over the past 50 years and a present day celebration of his wild creativity.

We are honored and forever grateful that Ralph has left his indelible mark on our labels for the past 19 years.

“He is not only an artist, but also a principled genius and possibly the one TRUE artist in the world. Thank you, Ralph, for making a noticeable dent in the universe. And for your friendship.” 

Love,

Jim Caruso and all of us at Flying Dog
