Flying Dog Brewery recently made a donation to the Rabies In The America’s conference held this year in Guanajuato, Mexico. Some generous soul purchased a Flying Dog t-shirt, hat and 6 pack of beer for over $200.00! If more people had that kind of compassion, we would be able to cure just about any disease. World Rabies Day will be held on Sunday, October 28th.

Thank you to Scott Bender for representing Flying Dog and all the great work you do as the Tribal Veterinarian for the Navajo Nation.





You already know this: Craft Beer continues to grow.

You may not know this: Craft Beer now accounts for over 5% of the Total Beer category share.

The Brewer’s Association’s Julia Herz was on CNBC last Friday (Oct 12, 2007) and talks about our industry’s growth.

As many of you know, we have a variety of things going this week at the Great American Beer Festival.  For those of you that are making the trip to Denver, we encourage you to come by for a Brewery Tour, stop by our booth or come to our Zombie Dance Post-GABF Parties on Friday and Saturday Nights.

But we also want to include those of you that can’t make this year’s festival. 

Starting Wednesday and going thru Saturday Night, we will be posting photos, blog entries and video at various sites online.

But this is where you come in:

We’re looking for suggestions on what you would like to see us take photos of. 

  • Is there a particular brewery booth you would like to see? 
  • Is there a particular person you would like us to take a picture of? 

Let us know by simply emailing your photo ideas to joshm@flyingdogales.com or sending him a text at 303.246.4873 (please include your name in the message).  Josh will be at the festival and your email will go straight to his iPhone while he’s roaming around.  He’ll take your direction and do his best to take the photo you are looking for and then it will automatically post to our Flickr page. 

We encourage you to use these photos for your own blogs as you see fit.  If you have any questions, feel free to email Josh.



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.

Flying Dog’s beers are now available to several European chapters of the People’s Republic of Flying Dog. The current selection includes Gonzo, Snake Dog, Old Scratch and Doggie Style with more styles arriving in ’08. Flying Dog’s distribution now includes Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Austria, Italy, UK and Holland with more to come. We are taking this bitch international! Whoever said America’s foreign policy was screwed up has obviously never tried Flying Dog beer.



Rolling Stone has recently released a gallery featuring all 8 of the Gonzo covers Hunter Thompson and Ralph Steadman teamed up to create for the magazine. Hunter wrote for Rolling Stone as a political and social journalist for over 20 years starting in 1970. Click on the image below to see the gallery.
