Maryland Blogger: Beer Tasting at Flying Dog Brewery, Frederick, Maryland

Beer Tasting at Flying Dog Brewery, Frederick, Maryland

Beer Tasting at Flying Dog Brewery, Frederick, Maryland

 

The weather was beautiful on Saturday and Chef Dolores and I decided to visit the Flying Dog Brewery in Frederick, Maryland to sample some of their new beers. They recently released three new beers as part their East Coast Hop Project and several beers are on their Limited Release list.

If you live in the area or plan to visit the area, you may wish to include the Tasting Room at  Flying Dog as one of your stops. It is a very nice facility with plenty of free parking. The Tasting Room prices are $8 for a flight of four beers or $6 for a glass of beer. We usually end up with two flights that we share and that provides an oppotunity to sample eight beers without having too much to drink. Click on the above link to reach the website for more information on the available craft beers and to plan your visit.

For our first tasting flight, we selected the Pale Ale, 5.6% Alc. by Vol., Rye Pale Ale, 6.8% Alc. by Vol., India Pale Ale, 7.1% Alc. by Vol. (These three are the beers in the East Coast Hop Project), and the Alpha Initiative Pilot #02, 7.4% Alc. by Vol. The last selection was our favorite in this flight.

Our second flight included their Tropical Bitch Belgian IPA, 8.0% Alc. by Vol., a seasonal selection, Mimosa Beer, 5.2% Alc. by Vol., a Brewhouse Rarity, the Double Dog Double IPA, 11.5% Alc. by Vol. and the On Cask selection, Alpha Initiative #2, 7.4% IPA. The last two were our favorites.

This would be my pick for a day out. We are beginning to see many brewerys starting up in Florida and I love giving my business to them. Cheers
