The Flying Dog Brewpub opened in 1990 in Aspen, Colorado, followed by a full-fledged Denver brewery soon after. A state-of-the-art brewing facility opened in 1994 in Frederick, Maryland.
Flying Dog often gets recognized for their seasonal offerings, including Kujo Imperial Coffee Stout, Horn Dog Barley Wine, Barrel-Aged Gonzo Imperial Porter, Dead Rise OLD BAY Summer Ale, and The Fear Imperial Pumpkin Ale.
Flying Dog’s winter release is K-9 Winter Ale. The sweet malt base (which changes with each release) offers roasted, nutty, and spicy flavors. Try pairing this beer with buttery cheeses, sweet breads, spice cake, squash, yams, and sweet potatoes, hearty meats and stews. They say K-9 Cruiser is the perfect beer to cozy up with by the fire, with or without a companion.
