Flying Dog Snake Dog NV

Winemaker's Notes:

The Flying Dog Legend begins in 1983, and like every good legend there are several versions of this tale. The villains of the peace in this story are two non-conformist, 'not likely to take it lying down' ranchers named George Stranahan and Richard McIntyre. George's story begins with him embarking on an “amateur mountaineering expedition” to climb K2 in the Himalayas with some friends and family. Though they were under-qualified and inexperienced, luckily, everyone managed to make it off the mountain alive and like any good beer drinker would at the end of an experience like that, George and his group found a local hotel bar to have a drink in. There he noticed a painting in the Flashman Hotel of a Flying Dog hanging on the wall that had been drawn by a local artist. Now, we all know dogs don’t fly, but nobody told this particular dog it couldn’t fly, just like no one had told George and his friends they couldn’t make this extraordinary journey. The Flying Dog became a symbol to George to describe what had happened to them with the mantra, “it is amazing what you can achieve if nobody tells you that you can't. Whether you believe this weird story or not, George and Richard opened the Flying Dog Brewpub in Aspen, Colorado in 1990. The venture was an immediate success, though they are now in a state-of-the-art facility in Frederick, Maryland. A Colorado-style India Pale Ale, power hopped with speciality hops from the Pacific Northwest. This is the brewery's hop monster and the citrus fruit aroma will hypnotize the senses!
