â€œWOODY CREEK WHITEâ€ SELECTED FROM OVER 1500 ENTRIES AS FLYING DOGâ€™S NEW SUMMER SEASONAL NAME
New Belgian-Style Wit Beer to be Released in June
The Peopleâ€™s Republic of Flying Dog responded in a big way when given the chance to play a role in Flying Dog Breweryâ€™s fascinating, yet irreverent history. Over 1500 names were submitted by consumers from around the country for Flying Dogâ€™s â€œName our Summer Seasonal Contest.â€
The newest addition to Flying Dogâ€™s â€œlitter of alesâ€ will be a â€œBelgian-style Witâ€ (White) beer and will be called â€œWoody Creek White.â€ The winning name was submitted by Tom Havey of Wilsonville, OR. For his efforts, Havey wins a trip to Flying Dogâ€™s hometown of Denver, CO for a VIP Brewery Tour and three-day pass to the 2007 Great American Beer Festival.
â€œWoody Creek White was the perfect name because it reinforces Flying Dogâ€™s remarkable story and the collection of social misfits that created the brand,â€ said Neal Stewart, Flying Dog Breweryâ€™s director of marketing. â€œWoody Creek, CO is a small, yet unconventional mountain community that many people consider to be â€œGonzo Ground Zeroâ€ and it is also home to our founder, George Stranahan.”
White beers get their name from their naturally cloudy or â€œwhiteâ€ appearance due to the suspended wheat proteins and unfiltered yeast. Woody Creek White is brewed with unique ingredients such as orange peel and coriander resulting in a refreshing and slightly citrus flavor that is extremely smooth and makes for a great beer to enjoy during the â€œdog daysâ€ of summer.
Woody Creek White Belgian-style Wit Beer will be available in grocery and liquors stores in 6-packs and on draft in pubs and bars from June through August.
