Wanna party like a Utopian? If you’re going to be in Denver this Friday (Oct. 10) for the Great American Beer Fest, come hang with us at the Flying Dog Brewery Warehouse (map below) from 4pm to 6pm. Even if you aren’t going to be in Denver, you can still party with us virtually. We will be streaming the entire event live, including a live chat.
The party is called FBAG (Flying Dog, Brats and Gonzo) and 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 4pm-6pm Mountain Time (6pm-8pm Eastern), open to the public and admission is FREE.
Besides the BU crew, you’ll have a chance to meet the cast of characters from Flying Dog, including but not limited to:
- Jim Caruso, CEO
- Matt Brophy, VP of Brewing Operations
- Josh Mishell, Creative Manager and “Visual Viceroy” (he designs the great Flying Dog labels)
- Neal Stewart, Prime Minister of Marketing
- Chris Rippe, Baron von Marketing (you seen him in the FD videos)
Here’s the beer menu:
- Dog Schwarz – Flying Dog’s newest addition to their Wild Dog Series. It’s a Smoked Double Lager and will be available in limited supply.
- Kerberos Tripel – Newest member of Flying Dog’s Canis Major Series
- Double Dog Double Pale Ale
- Gonzo Imperial Porter
- Whiskey Barrel-Aged Gonzo Imperial Porter
- New Canis Major Mixed Packs – 4-pack of 12oz bottles (one of each style) and and 8-pack of 7oz bottles (two of each bottle)
If you’re stuck in some part of the world besides Denver, which sucks for you, grab your favorite Flying Dog brew, fire up the ol’ puter and come to BeerUtopia.com. You’ll be able to see the party and chat with Brant, Eric, and the rest of the Beer Utopia crew while you enjoy some exceptional beer. It’s almost as good as being there, right? Okay, maybe not but it’s the best we can do until Scotty gets the transporter back online. (He’s working as fast as he can, Cap’n!).
