Beers In This Episode

Flying Dog Brewery Raging Bitch, Snake Dog, Bloodline, and Numero Uno beers drank on episode 10 of the Photo Bar Podcast

Matt’s Beers

Beer 1: Raging Bitch Belgian IPA 8.30%

Brewing Company: Flying Dog Brewery – Maryland US

Our Star Rating: 5 out of 5

Notes: This bitch has a lot going on. Its sweet malt body is contrasted by pine and grapefruit hop flavors and exotic fruit notes from the Belgian yeast. It’s available year round.

Beer 2: Snake Dog IPA 7.10%

Brewing Company: Flying Dog Brewery – Maryland US

Star Rating: 5 out of 5

Notes: IPAs emphasize the heat in spicy foods and smooth out creamy, fatty foods. Snake Dog has crisp, complex hop bitterness with subtle pine and no residual sweetness. Give it a whirl with Mexican, Thai or curry spice; an intense aged Cheddar and exotic fruits like mango and passionfruit.

Dan’s Beers

Beer 1: Bloodline Blood Orange Ale 7%

Brewing Company: Flying Dog Brewery – Maryland, US

Our Star Rating: 5 out of 5

Notes: Bloodline begins with huge grapefruit on the nose. Then, a delicate balance of citrus sweetness and bitterness. Try it with grilled light proteins, salads with fruity vinaigrettes, and fresh salsa.

Beer 2: Numero Uno Summer Cerveza 4.9%

Brewing Company: Flying Dog Brewery – Maryland, US

Our Star Rating: 5 out of 5

Notes: Flaked maize makes up one-third of the malt bill and highlights the distinctive corn and cracker flavor traditionally found in Mexican lagers. Agave is added at the end of the boil and the lime peel post-fermentation to impart a distinct, zesty character and a crisp, clean finish
