Brewery Hosts Flying Dog, Brats and Gonzo Party on October 10

Denver, CO – September 9, 2008 – Flying Dog Brewery announces the Flying Dog, Brats and Gonzo, or “FBAG” Party to occur on October 10 at the Flying Dog Brewery Warehouse in Denver, Colorado from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.

The FBAG event will be the first opportunity for beer connoisseurs to sample some of Flying Dog’s latest releases including “Dog Schwarz,” a Smoked Double Lager.  Flying Dog’s highly anticipated, new Canis Major Mixed 8-Pack of seven ounce bottles will also be unveiled.  The event is open to the public and admission is FREE.

“Although the brewing operations for Flying Dog have moved to Maryland, our corporate offices are still in the heart of Denver and we see the Great American Beer Festival as a hometown event,” said Neal Stewart, director of marketing for Flying Dog. “To support the event and its attendees, we are inviting all of our friends and those interested in Flying Dog and craft beer to come by our warehouse and sample some of our new and experimental beers.”

The FBAG Party at Flying Dog’s warehouse will be a meeting point for the Beer Advocate’s Pub Crawl on Friday during the beer festival. Beer Advocate founders Jason and Todd Alstrom will be at the event to meet with attendees and enjoy the famous “Gonzo Brats” and live music. Party goers will also have the opportunity to meet the Beer Utopia crew who will be onsite conducting interviews for their emerging beer enthusiast web show and streaming event news through a live Twitter feed.

“The Flying Dog team is really excited to partner with Beer Advocate and Beer Utopia for the inaugural FBAG party,” said Neal Stewart. “The online beer conversation is growing with tremendous intensity and we are happy to give our followers an open forum to discuss Flying Dog’s new beers, the FBAG event and the Great American Beer Festival as they experience it.”
