Eric Warner has announced that after eight years of record growth during his tenure as CEO at Flying Dog Brewery, he will be leaving in search of a fresh, new challenge, effective September 1, 2008. According to Eric, “Eight years as CEO is a long time in that position in this or any other industry. I could not be prouder of all that’s been accomplished and I want to make a change while I’m at the top of my game.”
Eric added “I would not be comfortable making this move unless there was someone who I felt shared the same passion, enthusiasm, and dedication to Flying Dog that I do and who could seamlessly step in and build on the momentum we’ve created. I am therefore pleased to announce that effective July 1st, Jim Caruso will be General Partner and CEO of Flying Dog Brewery and I will advise and assist him for the next two months.”
Jim has been affiliated with Flying Dog since 1995 and has served as the company’s Chairman since 1999. “There is no greater joy than being part of the wonderful, wacky and irreverent world of Flying Dog,” Jim said. “I love beer, and I have extraordinary respect for the talent and dedication of all the people who are the company, and I could not be prouder of what Flying Dog stands for.”
Flying Dog’s bold, craft beers combined with its purposefully irreverent view of the world are Flying Dog’s defining characteristics. This year, Flying Dog beer drinkers will enjoy more than 14,000,000 bottles of its beers in 46 states and in countries throughout Europe.

After about 6 years of the sun beating down on our old RV wrap it was time to get a new look. Below is the pictures from the makeover. Give us a honk when you see our party wagon on the road. We never drink and drive but that doesn’t mean our passengers can’t drink and ride.

Our QC Assistant, Jake Knill recently competed in the 72 Hour Film Festival with a movie he calls “Humanity vs. Nature and the Agricultural Revolution”. Take a look at his flick. I’m sure you’ll agree that it’s pretty good, especially considering Jake and his partner only had 72 to produce it – start to finish.
If you haven’t tried our Barrel Aged Gonzo, or BAG as we lovingly refer to it as, you might get your chance soon. 35 barrels of this rare Flying Dog release will be packaged for select accounts in the coming weeks.
