Flying Dog Brewery Releases “Dog Chow”

For Immediate Release



Frederick, MD – “This is a book about food and beer.” And so begins Dog Chow, Flying Dog Brewery’s recently released cookbook.

Described as “the everyman’s (or woman’s) guide to navigating the kitchen with beer in hand,” each of the eight recipes in Dog Chow features a different Flying Dog beer as a main ingredient. From Macaroni and Cheese with Doggie Style Classic Pale Ale to Gonzo Imperial Porter Chocolate Ice Cream, Dog Chow will make the mouths of beer geeks and foodies water.

“This first volume of Dog Chow is all about our brewers,” Ben Savage, Flying Dog VP of marketing, said. “All of the recipes were developed by them, most of whom have culinary backgrounds.”

Dog Chow also offers beginners tips on how to cook with beer. For example, beer can be heated, but not boiled. Boiling beer makes its innate hoppiness a Hell of a lot more hoppy… and not in a good way.

To close Dog Chow, Flying Dog also offers pointers on pairing beer with food, along with flavor profiles on each of Flying Dog’s beers. While there are no finite rules to beer pairings, guidelines like “no beer is created equal,” “beware of the big O,” and “throw caution to the wind,” makes pairing beer approachable and removes the intimidation factor often associated with wine.

Dog Chow will be promoted in concert with Flying Dog beer dinners throughout the mid-Atlantic. It’s also available for purchase alone or with a limited edition “Beer: It’s What’s for Dinner” apron on Flying Dog’s website.

Flying Dog is already planning the next volume of Dog Chow, which will feature recipes from chefs in the brewery’s hometown of Frederick, Maryland.
