Flying Dog is the largest brewery in Maryland, United States. The story of the Flying Dog Brewery began in 1990 with George Stranahan in Aspen, Colorado.
To understand the origin of this wacky name, we must start again in 1983, when the founder had left for a perilous adventure: the climbing of K2 in the Himalayas, also called the wild mountain, considered the most dangerous peak of the world.
After his expedition and back to his hotel, his team and he were dehydrated, and at one point George saw a large painting of a dog that seemed soothed, and that was in the air.
It did not make sense, but it did.
Flying Dog was born.
