Flying Dog Wildeman IPA

25 Jan


Announced with one of the most bizarre release videos for a beer (below), Wildeman IPA by Flying Dog is just one of the twenty (yes twenty) new beers to be released by Flying Dog Brewery in 2012.  Part of the Brewhouse Rarities Series (which will introduce a new experimental beer on the 1st of every month of 2012), the unfiltered IPA begins with notes of citrus and spice on the nose, followed by potent citrus hop flavor. The bitterness is balanced by light malt highlights and finishes dry, crisp, and with a slight hint of acidity.  The latest year-round release was unleashed on January 18 and will be available in the mid-Atlantic by early February.  Wildeman is the first year-round beer by Flying Dog since Raging Bitch in 2009.  The other new brews will include a German, Scottish, and Irish Ale as well as the Imperial Hefeweizen which was released in early January.

Jack's Abby India Pale Lager

Could IPL be the next big craft beer style?  If other breweries start turning out big hoppy, full-flavored lagers like Jack’s Abby of Boston, it may just be a big hit.  This well-reviewed brew is an exciting example of the natural evolution of the craft beer industry and shows what can be accomplished with an imagination and good execution.  If you’re fortunate to live in the Boston area, keep an eye out for Jack’s Abby Kiwi Rising India Pale Lager for a refreshing twist on the most popular style in the craft beer world.


Flying Dog Brewhouse Rarities

24 Nov

A very limited release is coming from Flying Dog

Flying Dog Brewery knows how to make a good beer.  One taste of the Raging Bitch IPA is enough to convince even the most die-hard West Coaster that there are a few brew masters over on the east coast who understand that a heavily hopped beer can and should be well-balanced and full of flavor.  Now the boys from Maryland are releasing a special limited release line in 2012 called the Flying Dog Brewhouse Rarities.  A new beer is scheduled to be released on the 1st of every month and each one is the brain child of an individual brewer at Flying Dog.  Unfortunately, the only way to get a hold of one of these specialties is to find it on tap somewhere in the mid-atlantic.  It seems the word rarity is no understatement.
