It may seem like we say this every time we release a Wild Dog beer, but our newest brew really is Flying Dog’s most unique beer to date. Collaborator Doppelbock was created through Flying Dog’s Open Source Beer Project, which gave amateur brewers a chance to give our brewing team recommendations and feedback on everything from the grain, hops and yeast to the brewing process itself.

We combined your feedback and created a unique Doppelbock recipe to brew up and release. Collaborator has a full body with a sweet malt profile and a slight roast character. The complete recipe and printable labels are available for download at www.OpenSourceBeerProject.com. We want to thank everyone who contributed to creating this beer; it truly was a collaboration.

It is once again time for the biggest celebration in beer, The Great American Beer Festival. As beer freaks from around the globe arrive here in Denver, it would be rude for Flying Dog (being Denver’s largest brewery) not to be a good hometown host. Just in case three days packed with 4 drinking sessions of over 1700 beers wasn’t enough for people we have planned a bevy of additional events, including our now infamous, completely unofficial and unsanctioned Great American Beer Festival after-parties. Below is a complete schedule with links to more information.

We’re back from Telluride, and definitely still recovering. The festival was definitely a success, even though some Sunday rain tried to get people down (it’s the BLUES festival, after all). I photoblogged a bunch of events and they’re available in the Telluride Blues and Brews set @ our flickr site (click here for a nice slide show).

We had some cool stuff going, including our very own Flying Dog-branded Plinko Board, which will also be showcased at the Great American Beer Fest next month.

We're on the western slope, people! Tweener set before grace potter Amy from California wins our first Plinko jackpot Grooving to the music Grace Potter and the Nocturnals at the historic Sheridan Opera House, Telluride More mofro

The music was wonderful, my personal favorites were Joe Bonamassa and Grace Potter.

Of course, you can also find our Flying Dog Productions videos on our website or on our YouTube page.

Greetings, fellow members of the Republic of Flying Dog! As most of you know, this weekend is the Telluride Blues & Brews festival, and Flying Dog is a sponsor! In true Gonzo style, we sent all of our staff out there, and I am writing to you from the back of our company winnebago. Around me are a handful of kegs, a bunch of cases, and 9 other brewery laborers. We loaded up some large trucks with kegs and merch yesterday with the remaining 25 or so employees arriving tonight and tomorrow.

For those of you who cant make it to Southwestern Colorado with us, ill be photoblogging the festival, please check out our flickr site for some real-time updates throughout the weekend.

This past weekend, our friends over at the Wild Goose Brewery in Frederick, MD threw a little get together called the “Flock Party”. It been one year since the Flying Dog ownership group purchased the brewery and they thought that was good enough reason to have a good ol’ fashioned BBQ. Rippe and I agreed and made the trek to East Coast to celebrate with them.

How awesome was this party? ADMISSION was FREE. The BEER was FREE. The FOOD was FREE Plus, there was live music and brewery tours. And no, we weren’t scumbags and charged $20 for parking. It was all totally free. SWEET!

Over 1000 people agreed and came out to drink some Flying Dog and Wild Goose.

Here are some pictures from the event:

Fox and Lutz Tapping Barrel

Wild Goose Brewery Manager, Ryan Fox and Sales Manager, Jim Lutz tapped a keg of the Wild Goose Oatmeal Stout that was aged in a Stranahan’s Colorado Whiskey barrel. Who drank that whiskey?

Waiting for Beer

Good day for drinking some good beer.

Rippe doesn’t get out of Colorado much, so don’t blame him for being a cheesy tourist, ok?
