New Blog Flying Dog Cherry Sour Ale

While in DC for Savor, this is my last beer I had outside of Savor.  It was in basement of this bar where I had DC Brau Hell’s Bottom Stout.  I cannot remember the bar name.  Flying Dog had tap take over which is where a brewery switches all tap handles to their own beers.  The brewery puts some special beers on tap.  I had two beers at Savor from this brewery and I am a huge fan of this brewery.  Let us get to know the back story of this brewery.  Flying Dog Brewery was founded in 1990 by George Stranahan and Lydia McIntyre in Aspen, Colorado but they later moved to Denver, Colorado.  They moved to Maryland after they brought the Wild Goose beers and then sold it to the Logan Shaw Brewing Company.

This beer is a cloudy reddish color to it.  It does not really have a smell to the beer.  The taste is sweet carbonation cherry going on in it.  It was not drinkable and really bad. The marriage between the cherry and the sour was not happening in this beer.

Here is a website and twitter addresses:

Closing out my trip to DC for Savor, I really hate to say this about this brewery.  I have to say this beer was a huge disappointed from this brewery.  I love this brewery and I follow them for everything they do in the craft beer world.  I have to call it the way it is on this beer.  However, with that all said, I know there will be a group of beer drinkers out there that will love this beer.  Just because I said I do not like it that does not mean you will not like it.  I am really looking forward to seeing Cholocate IPA to hit the market and I trying their Oyster Stout.  This brewery is not afraid to push the limits in the beer world and I respect them for what they are doing in the craft beer world. Slayer the person wanted to see my thoughts on this beer. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
