Flying Dog’s Old Bay-flavored beer was a huge success this summer–but it was always intended as a special seasonal offering… and besides, Old Bay just somehow doesn’t taste as good in October. Luckily for fans of Baltimore flavors and seasonal beer, Flying Dog has a plan for this winter, too.
According to Brewbound, Flying Dog is teaming up with Otterbein’s Bakery to make four seasonal beers that are meant to be paired with the locally beloved cookies. “In developing each of these recipes, we didn’t simply want to recreate the flavors of each cookie,” said Flying Dog’s brewmaster Matt Brophy. “Instead, we used ingredients like specialty-roasted malts and new yeast strains to create flavor profiles that enhance and complement each pairing.” The four beers will be sold bundled together in a holiday 12-pack, and they include:
Imperial Hefeweizen, inspired by and meant to be paired with Otterbein’s Sugar Cookies
Oatmeal Raisin Stout, inspired by and meant to be paired with Otterbein’s Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
Oak-Aged Hazelnut Scotch Ale, inspired by and meant to be paired with Otterbein’s Ginger Cookies
Roasted Peanut Brown Ale, inspired by and meant to be paired with Otterbein’s Chocolate Chip Cookies
Beer and cookies don’t quite go together as well as milk and cookies, but we’d be willing to give it a go, anyway. The holiday 12-backs will be on sale starting November 7–mark your calendars.
