There are reasons Flying Dog is located in Denver, CO. Read the full article from Bill Husted’s Denver Post column here. This is also a good time for Flying Dog to remind everyone to drink responsibly during the upcoming holiday season. Cheers.

So you want to be a brewer? Be prepared to spend several hours at 12am on a Saturday night, ankle deep in foam. These are pictures of a midnight clean up after a check valve malfunction on one of your fermenters. The manway door blew straight off as you can see below (door buried in 150bbls worth of foam ). Even President Eric Warner got drafted into the clean up crew and spend some long overdue time in the brew house.

The Red Sox swept the World Series so it is time for Flying Dog to pay its debt to Harpoon Brewery from Boston. Here are some pictures proving we are a brewery of our word. The keg of Harpoon IPA is now tapped in the Flying Dog Tasting Room. We live in shame.

Another Halloween is upon us and as we become adults we trade the candy in for fermented adult beverages from Flying Dog as our treats. There is always an army of Hunter Thompson look-a-likes running around and celebrating as if it were the man himself. We want you to send in your pictures of you in your HST costumes so we can publish them on our website’s photo gallery and blog. Send your Halloween pictures to bullshit@flyingdogales.com and see if you can out do this costume.

Flying Dog Brewery ties together American craft beer flavors with traditional holiday foods




DENVER, CO October, 2007 – Flying Dog Brewery is one of the many craft breweries participating in the national program called Craft Beer and Food for the Holidays This free program organized by the Brewers Association, highlights the ways in which beer styles complement many traditional American holiday foods. The program delves into pairings such as ale with traditional American foods, a pairing frequently mentioned in reference to the Pilgrims and the first Thanksgiving. The website, www.beerandturkey.org, is for beverage and food lovers interested in complementary flavors at the holiday dinner table.

The web site was created in 2006 to encourage those hosting holiday celebrations to include craft beer in their holiday dinner menus. Of the 1,440 breweries in the U.S., just under 1,400 of them are craft brewers and Flying Dog Brewery is one of them. At www.beerandturkey.org is information for beer and food enthusiasts who want to learn “what to drink” and “how to serve” craft beer at their holiday meals. There is also a database of fellow craft breweries who have posted their holiday release beers and information on holiday dinners associated with the breweries.

Caramelized and toasted grain flavors in many beers complement the flavors of roast turkey while herbal hop additions pair nicely with popular holiday seasonings such as sage. Furthermore, the carbonation, fruitiness and balanced bitterness of many craft beers allow them to stand up to creamy, butter-rich preparations like mashed potatoes, creamed corn and similar fare.

Julia Herz, Director of Craft Beer Marketing for the Brewers Association stated, “Our country’s history is rich with stories of beer and food and craft beer picks up where wine leaves off. Many styles of beer both complement and contrast the food they are paired with, whereas wine mostly contrasts. The holiday dinner table is a very appropriate place for beer made from America’s small, independent and traditional brewers.”

Here are some suggestions listed on www.beerandturkey.org for beer styles to pair with various main courses:

Traditional Roast Turkey: The roasted and caramelized skin matches well with a golden ale like Flying Dog’s Tire Bite.

Ham: In-Heat Wheat’s taste profile is often reminds people of banana and clove notes and would be a perfect pairing with ham that is prepared with fruit and seasonings.

Duck: Flying Dog’s Fall Seasonal, Dogtoberfest makes a perfect companion to the darker meat like duck which offers a richer flavor than turkey.

Salmon: An amber lager like Old Scratch can offer a clean toasted malt note to offset the firm flavors of salmon without a lot of bitterness that would overwhelm the fish.

Leg of Lamb: Pale ales like Doggie-style Classic Pale Ale provide a pleasant foil to lamb with a spicy or herbal character to complement the character of the meat along with some toasted malt notes. Or for more harmony with the roasted flavors of the meat, try Road Dog Porter.

Beef Tenderloin: This rich hearty cut of meat deserves a robust beer as a counterpoint but also calls for some contrast to clear the palate between bites. The ideal companion would Double Dog Double Pale Ale.

The only thing we like doing more than making beer here at Flying Dog Brewery is gambling. With our Colorado Rockies being in their first World Series, our friends at Harpoon Brewery in Boston approached us with an intriguing proposition. Should the Red Sox luck out and win the World Series, Flying Dog would have to serve Harpoon in our Tasting Room for one week. Should the Rockies go onto to fulfill their destiny and become World Series Champs, Harpoon will have to serve Flying Dog in their Tap Room. Let the games begin. GO ROCKIES!
