Thanks for writing about our Open Source Beer! $12.79 is a great deal, considering we sell it out of our tasting room for $18, as well.
By a strange stroke of luck, your blog entry is very timely. Today is the first Friday of the month, and every first Friday, beer bloggers everywhere write on a common theme (we call it “The Session”). I think it’s a unique thing in the blogger world, and love being a part of it. This month’s theme: Doppelbocks! So if you want to be included in our little deal, leave a comment with a link to your blog entry here:
Flying Dog Brewery
You’ve gotta appreciate an organization whose representative care enough about their products to engage and embrace the blogging community. Josh actually has a great reputation for this kind of customer interaction.
And yes, I did submit for The Session #11 Dopplebock beer carnival.
Josh is a jack-of-all-trades who maintains two blogs (his own Bank Gothic Overload and Flying Dog’s beerdinners.com). In his role as creative manager for the brewery, he recently redesigned all of the Flying Dog’s packaging. In addition, Josh plays guitar for a “not exactly bluegrass” band called The Dust Farmers.
So, if you’re out and about and want to pick up some beer, and good beer at that, from a company that engages with the blogosphere, help yourself to some Flying Dog. My personal favorites are the darker beers, Road Dog and Gonzo Imperial Porter, although they are perhaps best known for their Doggie Style Classic Pale Ale.
And hey, Josh, we here at Terra Sig hope that all is cool after your apartment fire before Christmas.
