Flying Dog The Fear, Gourd Standard, Dogtoberfest

This Fall we have a triple-threat from Flying dog – the classic Dogtoberfest, The Fear and the brand new Gourd Standard. You can’t go wrong with any of these!

First up, the classic Dogtoberfest Marzen has been a big NJ favorite in the Autumn months. It’s won a bronze and 2 gold medals at the Great American Beer Festival and it’s no question why… it’s brewed with 100% imported German ingredients. It is rich and malty with a sweet aroma and deep mahogany color. Pair it with spicy cheeses, sweet Asian sauces; spiced desserts; or your favorite German dish. 5.6%ABV

Next, The Fear Imperial Pumpkin Ale. Why is there only one time of year – as goblins, ghouls, and ghosts frolic on front lawns – when we embrace THE FEAR? Flying Dog brewed The Fear with a local pumpkin puree and secret blend of spices. But once you take a sniff and a sip, those spices become quite apparent. (Hint: Think pumpkin pie.) Anything seasonally spicy or sweet will beautifully complement this rich and complex brew. 9%ABV and rated a 93 on RateBeer.

Finally, the newest addition to this Fall lineup is The Gourd Standard- a Pumpkin IPA. Rather than using bold, citrus-forward Pacific Northwest hops, the brewers at Flying Dog chose German Noble hops for their subtle, yet complex, earthiness and spiciness. It’s 6.7% ABV and a great balance between hops and pumpkin!
