Be Flying Dog for Halloween and we’ll post your photos

Attention slackers:

If you’re looking for costumes the day before Halloween, you’re probably in trouble. Our suggestion is to dress up like your favorite beer from Flying Dog Brewery. Just like the people below, who make themselves into mega-sized Flying Dog bottles, you’ll be the life of the party.

Flying Dog Bottles as a Halloween costume

Take photos of your costume and party and email me at joshm [at] flyingdogales {dot} com, and I’ll post your photos on our blog.


Here are some suggestions on how to take care of this (some easy, some hard):

• If you’ve got some cardboard and some scissors, you can easily make some Flying Dog wings and a propeller. Duct tape them to your back and you’re automatically turned into Doggie Style. As the night wears on, you’ll probably be able to pick up some ladies just by saying that you’re “Doggie Style”.

• A skull mask, cowboy hat, cigarette holder and plastic gun instantly turns you into Gonzo Imperial Porter. Trade out the skull for yellow-tinted sunglasses if you want to go as Hunter S. Thompson.

• A vertical striped shirt, sunglasses and some handcuffs turns you into a pretend Road Dog. To make the shirt out of a solid color shirt, use tape to make the stripes. Take it easy on Friday, because you most likely don’t want to experience the real thing. Trust us on this.

• Remember that time you went to Deutschland and came back with those leiderhosen you bought when you were completely wasted at Oktoberfest? There’s no better time to wear them with a friend and become our GABF gold-winning Dogtoberfest. Pair with a couple of large steins and you’re golden.

• Ooh, another really easy one. Grab some Depends, and 2 beer mugs. You are now Double Dog Double Pale Ale. Drink hoppy beer all night in style. It helps if you are really hairy. Maybe it’s time to bust out the fur coat a little early if you want to look more canine-esque.

• Go to your favorite beer store and ask for their old case carriers of Flying Dog. Cut out the tops and bottoms of each case and stack them together, and you’ve just become a mobile Flying Dog display. This is probably the easiest option if you can get the case carriers. Most liquor stores have these in the back. P.S.: Make sure you can use “the facilities” or it’s going to be a long evening.

• Do you tend to get a lazy eye when you drink? If that’s the case, you’ll be a spitting image of our very own Chris Rippe. Talk dirty to people, quote liberally from The Big Lebowski, and drink lots of Snake Dog and you’re good to go. (he’s the guy on the right)

Hopefully these suggestions will turn you into that person without a costume into someone with one of the best costumes that didn’t take too long to put together.
