Flying Dog 2nd Annual Gonzofest Announced

Frederick, MD – August 3rd, 2009—Flying Dog Brewery is pleased to announce its 2nd annual GonzoFest taking place on September 12th at the Flying Dog Brewery in Frederick, MD from 3:00 pm to 9:00 pm.

The annual throw down will feature live music and host the Hard Times Chili Cook-Off for the Maryland State Championships. In addition to the four bands playing a wide variety of music and samples from the chili competition, attendees will also be able to enjoy award-winning beers from Flying Dog Brewery. Flying Dog will be hosting a Hunter S. Thompson look–a-like contest. Three winners will be chosen and will receive Gonzo gift baskets, including a signed bottle by label artist Ralph Steadman.

“GonzoFest is a chance for the Mid-Atlantic community to come out and celebrate the life of Hunter S. Thompson, drink locally brewed Flying Dog beer, and listen to live music. It is a true representation of what Flying Dog stands for: purposeful, provocative, irreverence,” explains Stephanie Kerchner, Director of Marketing for Flying Dog. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the United Way of Frederick County to help support local poverty initiatives.

Admission to GonzoFest is $20 in advance or $30 at the door. For more information, visit or call 301-694-7899.
