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.
In the most epic Super Bantamweight Smackdown on U.S. soil since Freddy vs. Jason, round two of the International Arms Race begins October 15.
In one corner, the brewmaster of Flying Dog and George Clooney look-a-like Matt “LoveFreedom” Brophy. In the other, BrewDog captain and extreme ABBA fan James “One Nut” Watts:
The International Arms Race can be witnessed at the following U.S. Civil War battlegrounds:
- Monday, Oct. 15 at Max’s Taphouse, Baltimore, MD
- Tuesday, Oct. 16 at RFD, Washington, DC
- Wednesday, Oct. 17 at Frisco’s Taphouse, Columbia, MD
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.
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.
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.
