The craft beer and “buy local” movements sort of go hand in hand, right? A new partnership between the University of Maryland and Flying Dog Brewery aims to bridge those two crazes, right down to the very hops used to make some of our favorite beers.

Makers of ‘Raging Bitch’ Use Court Winnings to Fund Free Speech Org



Remember that lawsuit Flying Dog Brewery brought against the Michigan Liquor Control Commission for refusing to allow its Raging Bitch IPA in the state from 2009-2011 on the grounds that its name and label artwork were “detrimental to the health, safety, and welfare of the general public?”

First Old Bay Beer. Now Otterbein Cookie Beer?



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.

Everyone Loves Old Bay Beer

So it should come as no surprise to anyone that Old Bay beer — more specifically Flying Dog’s Dead Rise Old Bay Summer Ale — is flying off the shelves.

Frederick Brewery Stands by Offensive Name in Lawsuit with Michigan Liquor Commissioners


If you’d been stalking me for a little while, you would have noticed that as much as I favor local beers I’ve never bought a bottle of Raging Bitch by Flying Dog Brewery of Frederick, Maryland. And it’s not just because I find the overhopped India Pale Ale style too perfumy. It’s the name. The unappetizing Ralph Steadman illustration on the label doesn’t help either.

But if I lived in Michigan from 2009 to 2011 (another charming hypothetical!), I wouldn’t have ever had the opportunity to spot the beer in a liquor store, get turned off, and walk out with something else because until 2011 the Michigan Liquor Control Commission banned the sale of Raging Bitch in that state for its offensive name.
