When we sat down with musician Kenny Liner to chat about this Saturday’s Believe in Music benefit concert, he explained that “being in a band was a selfish way to appreciate music.”

Given that Liner was in one of Baltimore’s most notable bands – The Bridge – for 10 years, many may disagree with his sentiment. However, when The Bridge decided to part ways in 2011, Liner was at a crossroads.

Moving to Portland, Oregon to “figure out what I wanted to do with my life,” Liner quickly realized how much he missed his hometown of Baltimore and how desperately he wanted to give back to the community that supported him for those 10 years. 

That was when Liner founded Believe in Music, a foundation aimed to uplift underprivileged Baltimore City students through music education. “I have a lot of friends who are city teachers,” Liner explained. “They talk about the lack of funding for music programs and how the current system isn’t connecting with children.” 

In fact, Baltimore City is often cited as the most under-funded school system in Maryland and music programs in over half of the city’s public schools have been cut entirely. 

Partnering with the Living Classrooms Foundation, Liner established music classes for elementary and middle school-aged students at two youth centers in East Baltimore. He examined the Maryland state music education curriculum and rewrote it to be more accommodating to these students, the majority of whom live in public housing. 

“Since instruments aren’t available in city schools, I created programs that involve hip hop, dance, beat boxing, singing, and marching,” he said. “This teaches the same musical concepts, but is way more accessible to these kids.” 

To say that we were blown away by Liner and the Believe in Music program is an understatement. He is a true artist who not only expresses his art through music, but encourages that same expression in others – the embodiment of supporting local creativity.

We’re partnering with Liner on a benefit concert for Believe in Music this Saturday, October 27 at the Maryland Science Center. For one-night only, The Bridge will perform a reunion show, along with a rooftop DJ lounge and craft beer from yours truly.

Tickets are still on sale for our Believe in Music benefit show. You can also get involved with Believe in Music and make a donation on the foundation’s website.

Ralph Steadman “learnt to draw to try to change the world.”

Now, the world has a glimpse into life of one of the most prolific artists of our time…For No Good Reason

Narrated by Ralph’s longtime friend Johnny Depp, “For No Good Reason” is a visually explosive yet intimate portrait of the Gonzo legend. Director Charlie Paul spent over 15 years compiling footage, working with animators to bring the art to life, and meticulously crafting the story of Ralph STEADman. 

“For No Good Reason” is premiering tomorrow night at the BFI London Film Festival. We’ll keep the Republic posted on any screenings stateside.

If there’s one thing we Americans love, it’s freedom. We also love big screen TVs, muscle t-shirts, multi-pound burgers, and free shit. 

Let’s focus on the latter and show those Scots how it’s done during the International Arms Race. 

The first 25 people to cast their vote at our International Arms Race events with BrewDog next week get a free t-shirt:

In the course of 72 hours, most of us go to work, eat, drink, sleep, and (if we’re lucky) have a good poop. 

In the 72 hours between Thursday, October 11 and Sunday, October 14, teams in Frederick’s 72 Hour Film Fest will direct, edit, and score a short film with a script handed to them just before the competition bell tolls.

And YOU can still be a part of the creative, sleep-deprived madness. 

Registration for 72 Film Fest, sponsored by yours truly, is open until Thursday, October 11.

Also new to the fest this year is the Flying Dog Shock and Awe Award. More prestigious than a Razzie and less pretentious than the Grand Prix at the Festival de Cannes, the Flying Dog Shock and Awe Award is a critic’s choice judged by our in-house filmmaker Tim Martin. A graduate of Maryland Institute College of Art, Tim is nationally acclaimed filmmaker and the mastermind behind Flying Dog Productions

All films entered in the 72 Film Fest will be screened at the Weinberg Center for the Arts on Friday, October 19 and Saturday, October 20. To purchase tickets to the screenings or for more information, visit the 72 Film Fest’s website

Day in Bat Country

What do Zappos, Nordstrom, and Amazon all have in common? None of them carry Flying Dog condoms. And they are also notorious for offering an incredible online shopping experience.

We’re pretty passionate about customer satisfaction around here. Running a remarkable brewery starts with the beer, but it also extends to your experience on a tour, your interaction at a Flying Dog event, and (hopefully) filters all the way down to the Bat Wing-emblazoned shirt you wear on your back. We’re deeply proud of Ralph Steadman’s artwork and way he continues to reinvent his unique and indelible mark on our brand. His imagination and creativity is woven into every piece of clothing and accessory that bear our name.

Plus, we’d never expect you to buy anything we wouldn’t buy twelve of ourselves.

In keeping with that standard of excellence, we’ve spent the last six months updating our digital storefront to reflect our passion for creating an exceptional customer experience. We’ve reorganized our navigation, simplified our checkout, improved our backend fulfillment and consolidated our shipping rates. What didn’t change? Our commitment to quality assurance, order accuracy, and our seasonal offering of totally fucking awesome merchandise.

Take, for instance, the shirt celebrating the 75th anniversary of Gonzo and the Good Doctor Hunter S. Thompson. We burned through all our inventory in July because you guys love Dr. Gonzo as much as we do. So we decided to bring back a limited run of our Day in Bat Country T-shirts (men’s and women’s sizes S – XXL). This time, when they’re gone, they’re gone. (Basically, they’re like the Franklin Mint coins, only less expensive, more wearable, and arguably more valuable.)

Take a minute to peruse the site and familiarize yourself with the friendly faces of our Flying Dog staff who were neither starved nor man-handled in the modeling of this merchandise.  Like what you see? Let us know. Want to see us carry something different? Let us know. Want us to produce some custom pajama jeans? We’re one step ahead of you.

Click. Shop. Enjoy.
