The New York Times Likes It Doggie Style

Doggie Style in The New York Times

Yesterday, we got some pretty awesome news.

A panel, put together by The New York Times’ Eric Asimov, reviewed the nation’s best American Pale Ales. Our Doggie Style Classic Pale Ale was rated No. 1, beating out the likes of Samuel Adams, Dogfish Head, Oskar Blues, Lagunitas, and Sierra Nevada.

“Our consensus favorite, the Doggie Style Classic from Flying Dog, was one of the hoppier beers in the tasting, with a clean, crisp, almost bracing bitterness, like a pilsner,” Asimov said. “For a beer that calls itself ‘classic,’ it pushes the boundaries of the pale ale style. Nonetheless, it was fresh, balanced and a pleasure to drink.”

In addition to our individual accolade, Asimov touched on the kinds of things that get us out of bed in the morning.

“Nowadays, American brewers are among the most creative in the world, in the vanguard of pushing and transforming established styles of beer.”

He continued, “all of us were impressed by the consistently high quality of these beers. American brewers seem to have this style down cold, although we found more than a few variations on the theme…What all these beers had in common, however, was balance and harmony. You could drink them over a long afternoon in the sun, whether at a ballgame, a barbecue or the beach, and still feel refreshed and energetic.”

Read the full New York Times article. Obviously, we recommend perusing it with a cold Doggie Style in hand.
