Flying Dog Brewery Making Big Changes in 2012

18 Dec

Flying Dog Brewery

Flying Dog is a great example for gauging the craft beer industry’s success and potential in its relative infancy.  An announcement in June by the brewery to shrink distribution costs left 13 states without Flying Dog’s beer and seemed to be a sign that the company was struggling to remain profitable.  The change paid off however and Flying Dog is up 25% in 2011 with a majority of that increase coming from areas local to the brewery (Washington D.C. and mid-Atlantic territories).  Now, for 2012, Flying Dog will be distributing new metal packaging for its beers; that’s right, cans.  The first brew to be canned will be the Underdog Pale Ale but Flying Dog has plans to can their other brews, including some of their 12 new releases scheduled for next year.  It’s exciting to see the craft beer industry thriving and evolving.  Cheers Flying Dog!  Follow the link below to see the full article on BrewBound.
