Press Release: Flying Dog Brewery Leaps Ever Higher with New Styles, Packages for 2008

Flying Dog looks to be going with a couple of Belgian styles for their next couple of outings. (Okay, the Bière de Garde is more of a French style, but still.) Should be interesting to watch the progress as they shift all their brewing to Maryland.


A new seasonal and 4th new Canis Major style to hit shelves in 2008

Flying Dog Garde DogFlying Dog Brewery has new show-stopping styles and packages for 2008. The brewery continues its tradition of offering award-winning beers in 2008 with the release of a Biere de Garde as their new spring seasonal and a Tripel as the fourth member of its Canis Major Series of high gravity beers.

Flying Dog Cerberus Tripel“Garde Dog” Biere de Garde is unfiltered with a hazy, deep golden to light copper appearance. Brewed with domestically grown French Hops and German Pilsner Malts, it gives craft beer drinkers a very enjoyable, light-bodied, subtlety sweet beer with toasty malt undertones. Garde Dog is the perfect compliment to lighter fare such as seafood, salads, cheese and Middle Eastern and Indian foods.

“Cerberus” Tripel is a bottle-conditioned strong Belgian Ale with slightly hazy appearance and mousse-like head. Brewing with Golding and Saaz hops and Pilsner and Aromatic malts yields a medium body and champagne-like carbonation. Cerberus pairs perfectly with turkey and other poultry, creamy cheeses, fruit pastries, desserts and crème brulee.

Flying Dog will also be launching two new and unique packages to their Canis Major Series in 2008. The first is a Mixed four-pack featuring one 12oz. bottle of each Canis Major style. The second is a Mixed eight-pack of 7oz. bottles, which will include two offerings of each Canis Major style. The Canis Major Series includes Gonzo Imperial Porter, Horn Dog Barley Wine, Double Dog Double Pale Ale and the new Cerberus Tripel.
