This is a clip from a European TV channel featuring Snake Dog in the HORECAVA trade show January 7-10 in Amsterdam. Rick Kempen is Flying Dog’s illustrious foreign dignitary. The only thing we understand from the video is “Snake Dog” and “Flying Dog Brewery” but we trust Rick has the rest under control.

For Immediate Release:
A new seasonal and 4th new Canis Major style to hit shelves in 2008
Denver, CO – Flying Dog Brewery has new show-stopping styles and packages for 2008. The brewery continues its tradition of offering award-winning beers in 2008 with the release of a Biere de Garde as their new spring seasonal and a Tripel as the fourth member of its Canis Major Series of high gravity beers.
“Garde Dog” Biere de Garde is unfiltered with a hazy, deep golden to light copper appearance. Brewed with domestically grown French Hops and German Pilsner Malts, it gives craft beer drinkers a very enjoyable, light-bodied, subtlety sweet beer with toasty malt undertones. Garde Dog is the perfect complement to lighter fare such as seafood, salads, cheese and Middle Eastern and Indian foods.
“Kerberos” Tripel is a bottle-conditioned strong Belgian Ale with slightly hazy appearance and mousse-like head. Brewing with Golding and Saaz hops and Pilsner and Aromatic malts yields a medium body and champagne-like carbonation. Cerberus pairs perfectly with turkey and other poultry, creamy cheeses, fruit pastries, desserts and crème brulee.
Flying Dog will also be launching two new and unique packages to their Canis Major Series in 2008. The first is a Mixed four-pack featuring one 12oz. bottle of each Canis Major style. The second is a Mixed eight-pack of 7oz. bottles, which will include two offerings of each Canis Major style. The Canis Major Series includes Gonzo Imperial Porter, Horn Dog Barley Wine, Double Dog Double Pale Ale and the new Cerberus Tripel.

Another month has passed and it is time for The Session once again. This month’s topic is Doppelbocks and we have a pretty unique one to throw into the discussion. It is rare that home brewer’s get a chance to influence the outcome of a commercial brew but with our Open Source Beer Project that is exactly what Flying Dog did in Fall of 2007.
Wild Dog Collaborator Doppelbock gave amateur brewers a chance to give our brewing team recommendations and feedback on the everything from the grain, hops and yeast to the brewing process itself. We combined their feedback to create a unique Doppelbock recipe.
Collaborator has a full body with a sweet malt profile and a slight roast character. The complete recipe and printable labels are available for download at http://www.opensourcebeerproject.com/.
Alcohol by Volume: 8.3%, Plato: 19.5, IBUs: 24

Alpha Bitch is Flying Dog’s annual award for Employee of The Year. This year we had a tie which is our way of saying, “no one deserved it but if we combined these two we might actually have a decent employee.” Congratulation to Matt Barnes and Chris Rippe, the most special of the special kids. They do get to choose their own prize which is a pretty sweet deal.
