Citing “regulatory and legislative issues” in its home state of Maryland, Flying Dog has halted plans to build a $54 million destination brewery, despite investing more than $2.5 million to purchase land late last year.
Flying Dog Brewery has officially terminated its membership with the Brewers Association (BA), citing changes to the not-for-profit industry trade organization’s Advertising and Marketing Code that are aimed at addressing “sexually explicit, lewd, or demeaning brand names, language, text, graphics, photos, video, or other images.”
Flying Dog Brewery has named Ben Clark as its new brewmaster. The Frederick, Maryland-headquartered brewery announced the move today in a press release touting the promotion alongside the release of Snake Dog IPA.
Anheuser-Busch InBev is making a number of sizable investments to grow its acquired craft beer brands both domestically and abroad, according to recent reports. The world’s largest beer company is planning a large-scale international expansion for its biggest craft offering, Goose Island, and making significant investments to scale production capabilities for its Blue Point and Karbach Brewing brands in their respective home markets of New York and Texas.
Goose Island is migrating to Europe. Anheuser-Busch InBev is planting a series of pubs branded with the Chicago craft brewery’s name, starting with a pilot launch in London before Dec. 25, followed by a second London location and a third in Belgium, according to the Telegraph. The opening of the Goose Island Vintage Ale House marks the first launch by A-B InBev’s “brand experience” division, which reportedly hopes to gain notoriety for its craft brands. The pubs will offer Goose Island’s barrel-aged beers and American smokehouse-style fare.
The craft beer community is exactly that: A community that takes care of its own. When flooding in late July devastated Ellicott City – a haven for artisans and independent businesses – two Maryland breweries knew they could help.
Flying Dog is Maryland’s largest brewery, but when it comes to the development of new beers, they stick to their commitment to creativity and innovation. Introducing two new, small-batch beers: Brewhouse Rarities Mint Julep Ale and Single Hop Imperial IPA with Ella.
With sales at an all time high, the craft beer market has undoubtedly become increasingly competitive. And with everyone and their mother coming out with “the best” craft beer in town, it’s easy to get overwhelmed with options. For the last 25 years, however, one brewery has remained fiercely independent and unwavering in its commitment to innovative, high quality craft beer is Flying Dog Brewery.
Officials in Frederick, Md. approved a piece of legislation last week that would qualify businesses that open secondary locations to receive significant tax credits over 10 years on those additional properties, reports the Frederick News Post. Under the legislation, a company that invests at least $15 million and creates 100 new jobs in the city would be eligible for the highest bracket, tantamount to a 100 percent property tax credit.
Tomorrow, Flying Dog will open its doors in a brand new way. After working with state and county legislators for nearly three years, the brewery is now able to serve beer by the glass in its tasting room.
Three prominent craft brewing executives from across the country will take the stage at next week’s Brewbound Session in Chicago, Ill. to talk portfolio strategy and how they execute behind their brands in the marketplace.
In December, the company detailed its ambition to launch Farmworks — complete with a 15-barrel brewhouse and tasting room — on a 53-acre farm in Lucketts, Va. Located just 17 miles from Flying Dog headquarters in Frederick, Md., the new brewery was planned to be a separately branded craft subsidiary owned and operated by Flying Dog. Farmworks was slated to open this summer.
Flying Dog Brewery’s smash success – Dead Rise OLD BAY® Summer Ale – is back by (extremely) popular demand. The beer will premiere at Oriole Park at Camden Yards for opening day on Friday, April 10 and will be available throughout the East Coast through the end of September. Brewed last year to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the iconic Maryland seasoning, demand for the beer exceeded everyone’s expectations, a benefit for both Flying Dog and the watermen of the Chesapeake Bay.
Maryland’s Flying Dog Brewery has finally won an important free speech case that could impact how beer products from around the country are marketed and advertised.
