Flying Dog Brewery Gives Dead Rise OLD BAY Beer a New Look & Recipe

Flying Dog Brewery (Frederick, Maryland) has officially announced that it will celebrate the 5th anniversary of Dead Rise, a Summer Seasonal OLD BAY Beer, with the debut of a new look and recipe in June 2020.

Originally released as a Blonde Ale, the new and improved Dead Rise is a Gose featuring lemon, salt, Citra hops and “Maryland’s most iconic seasoning – OLD BAY.” Coming in at 5.7% ABV, the reformulated recipe blends “50% more OLD BAY then Dead Rise’s previous formula . . . with a refreshing lemony tartness for a beer low in bitterness and high in flavor.”

“The team at Flying Dog is excited to celebrate the 5th anniversary of Dead Rise with a new look OLD BAY fans will recognize, and a new recipe everyone will love,” said James Maravetz, VP of Marketing at Flying Dog. “The new refreshing pop of tart combines so deliciously with the beer’s salty and spicy elements; if you’re an OLD BAY fanatic, you’ve got to try it!”

Dead Rise started shipping out to distributors on June 1 and will hang around through the summer months. You can expect to find this Seasonal Release available in 6-packs of 12 oz. bottles at craft beer-friendly establishments located in Maryland, North Carolina, South Carolina and throughout the rest of Flying Dog’s distribution area.  Prost!

Fun Fact – “Born in the heart of crab country, and once called ‘the most Maryland beer ever’ by The Washington Post, Dead Rise pays homage to the history of Maryland’s Chesapeake Bay and summer crab culture while also supporting the local industry. Flying Dog, the largest brewery in Maryland, donates a portion of the proceeds to the Maryland Department of Natural Resources’ True Blue Program, an annual campaign that highlights and rewards those restaurants who make it a point to serve local, Maryland harvested crab. The name Dead Rise is also a nod to the traditional fishing boats used year-round by Chesapeake Bay watermen to gather the shellfish.”
Suggested Food Pairings – “Dead Rise, designed to turbocharge the flavor of whatever seafood is on your plate, is a must-have at every summer meal. This recipe’s new lemony tartness freshens up the beer and helps flavors pop. In addition to seafood, try Dead Rise with salty starches like tater tots and fries, lighter proteins like turkey, chicken and tofu, or rich sauces and creamy condiments like melted cheese, bechamel and avocado and ranch dressings.”
