Doggie Style Ale took best of breed at the 10th Annual Great American Beer Festival, taking the Gold Medal in the Classic Pale Ale category. It's an American interpretation of a classic British pale ale that blends approximately 12% caramel malts with 88% two-row pale malts. The dog is hopped once at the initial boil with Chinook hops and also dry hopped in lesser proportions with cascade hops, providing the beer's spicy hop aroma. Notice the subtle pale to amber color with good clarity and head retention. A tasty ale combining caramel malt, floral, spicy hop, and slightly fruity aromas in the nose. That'd be the nose of the beer friends' the nose of the beer. Look for a nice caramel maltiness up front; sophisticated hop flavor, and a medium hop finish in this clean beer. Bone Appetit!
Let's hope that the Valentine's Gift you forgot to send throws you in the doghouse this month, as you will savor the selections we have in store for you! [Incidently, if you did forget, we can help! See page 4] February's lineup brings you two tasty breweries from hearty regions that are generally known for their award winning brewing skills. For your first sampling, our panel was gracious enough to toss you a few satiating brews bred from an award winning brewery. The Flying Dog Brewpub has been serving its handcrafted ales in the heart of historic downtown Aspen, Colorado since 1990. The brewery currently has the ability to brew over 35,000 barrels of beer per year… Now that's something to bark about!

In 2000, Broadway Brewing closed and The Flying Dog Brewery & Pub took over, opening its newly renovated pad thus ensuring its ability to service a slew of thirsty patrons. The new location allowed Flying Dog a 50% expansion over the course of three years. Chief brewmaster Dennis Miller (no, not that one, although he may be looking for a job after his less than warm reception on Monday Night Football!) alternates more than 20 styles of beer brewed from a 7-barrel mash system. A big hat's off to Ralph Steadman who adds his whimsical touch to each bottle.

Some of the tasty treats that are regularly featured at the brewpub include: Hair of the Dog, a medium-bodied porter, Ol Yeller, a refreshing Golden Ale, and Rin Tin Tan, a full-bodied brown Ale. Let's not forget the most recent additions to the litter: Old Scratch, a medium-bodied lager with the snappy slogan, "For the itch that ales you", and In Heat Wheat, an American Wheat Ale. Our sophisticated panel of beer hounds selected two pure breds that we know you'll howl at the moon over.
