A few weeks age we started a contest that gives you the chance to win free shit from us just by rating our beer on twitter. Technically the contest ended two hours ago, but we’re going to give everyone more chances to win. We’ve gotten a bunch of entries so far, but why not enter to win more free shit!
We’re going to extend the deadine to rate our beer on Beerdo and get entered in this giveaway (see above link for more if you have no idea what we’re talking about). So you now have until January 1 at 12:00AM (that’s New Year’s for those of you keeping track).
Good luck and enjoy your beers!
Being Flying Dog, we do things a little differently, including season’s greetings.
But we’re not just inundating you with a holiday card with no substance.
Pair Your Holiday Food With Flying Dog Beer
Different beers pair with different foods, so use this guide for picking out the perfect beer to pair with various courses of your holiday feast.

There’s a new beer rating website these days. It’s called Beerdo. The beauty of this wonderful concept is that you can rate beers via twitter. So the next time you’re sampling some beer and not near your computer, you can just send a txt review to twitter (set up your cell phone on twitter here, if you haven’t already).
To sweeten the deal, for the next two weeks any Flying Dog beer reviewed on Beerdo will be entered in a contest to win some Flying Dog shit. We’ll draw a name at random and the lucky winner will receive some awesome Flying Dog merch. We’ll also be giving out prizes to some of the more creative descriptions of our beer. Think of it as our Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanzaa/Festivus present to you.
Contest begins now, and ends at Noon EST on December 19, 2008.
Here’s how to rate a beer via Beero from twitter:
- 1. Create a new tweet.
- 2. Start it with @beerdo
- 3. Next, type the name of the beer you’re rating. For example, Flying Dog Doggie Style Pale Ale
- 4. To rate your beer, use 1-5 exclamation points (1 is low, 5 is awesome)
- 5. You can then use the rest of your message to describe the beer you’re drinking.
So your tweet would look something like this:
- @beerdo Flying Dog Gonzo Imperial Porter !!!!! This beer is as big as Hunter’s reputation, and I love the massive but balanced brew.
We’ll be monitoring all tweets with “@beerdo” and “flying Dog” in them, so make sure your reviews about our beers contain those terms.
We’re really excited about Beerdo for a bunch of reasons. One of those is that it’s a unique and innovative way to rate beers on the fly. So if you’re at a bar and trying Double Dog for the first time, it’s easiest to review the beer as you’re drinking it.
So tweet away, fans of Flying Dog!
We now have a winner of the Flying Dog Label Bag Giveaway contest. Ben from Tempe, Arizona is the lucky winner of the bag – since it went to a man, I suppose it’s actually a European Men’s Carry-All. Whatever you want to call it, it’s a pretty bad-ass bag and we’re sorry we couldn’t just give one to everyone.
We contacted Ben and he told us that he’s part of a non-profit Homebrew club. There’s a chance that Ben’s going to raffle off the bag to help support the club, so you might get a chance to be generous and stylish at the same time (if you win the potential raffle).
Stay tuned to this blog or our twitter feed for more unique contests as they happen! You don’t want to miss getting some of these cool one-of-a-kind-type gifts. Thanks for playing and good luck to the non-winners in the future (another term for non-winner is loser).
If you’ve ever been over to the other side of the pond, you probably know the name Tesco. Tesco is the world’s fourth largest retailer and every year they approve a few new beer brands to be sold in their stores. It’s a heated competition and a pretty big deal to have your beer approved for distribution.
So we were excited to have our Classic Pale Ale approved, but even more excited when Gonzo Imperial Porter was ALSO approved. Of the four spots available, Flying Dog took TWO!

The next time you’re in Singpore, you’ll be able to enjoy a little slice of home in the form of Flying Dog beer. That’s right, Flying Dog is now proudly served in Singapore. Our friends at Beerstyle Distribution kicked off The Dog’s introduction into Southeast Asia this past weekend with a bevy of activities.
Check out the rest of the photos they sent us here.

We’ve been waiting almost a year for this. Back in February when we released our new Kerberos Tripel, we put together a short, informational video with our VP of Brewing Operations, Matt Brophy.
In that video, Eric Warner asked Matt, “What foods would pair well with Kerberos?” His answer: Thanksgiving Dinner.
Later this week, Thanksgiving Dinner will be here and there will be a Kerberos Tripel right along side our plate of Turkey, stuffing and cranberry sauce. We can’t wait.
Watch the video below so you can bring some Kerberos to the family feast and sound all smart and sophisticated when you bust out your beer and food pairing knowledge. (If they ask you something you don’t know, send them to beerdinners.com)
Have a Happy and SAFE Thanksgiving, everyone.
We came across a great piece from BlackBookMag.com on Hunter Thompson’s fashion sense. Ever wondered what deal behind the aviator sunglasses is? What about his choice of shirts?
