Flying Dog Brewery Urges You to Stay the F*ck Home with New Variety Pack

Flying Dog Brewery (Frederick, Maryland) has officially announced that it will begin the Limited Release of its Stay the F*ck Home Emergency Pack, a Variety 12-Pack that includes some of the brewery’s “highest-octane brews,” in late June 2020.

Compiled as an act of do-goodery that will hopefully inspire beer lovers to do the right thing during the COVID-19 crisis, Stay the F*ck Home (or STFH) is a Mixed 12-pack filled with the following three high ABV brews (descriptions sourced directly from the brewery’s press release):

  • Gonzo Imperial Porter – A bold and forceful beer, just like the man it was brewed to honor – Dr. Hunter S. Thompson, founder of the Gonzo journalism movement. Complex layers of roasted chocolate, coffee, brown sugar, and vanilla malt flavors are balanced with a one-of-a-kind hop bite that hits you like a homemade firecracker. ABV – 10%
  • The Truth Imperial IPA – Flying Dog developed The Truth Imperial IPA over the course of 3 years, and it was scientifically engineered to be the holy grail for IPA lovers. With big pine notes and stone fruit underpinnings, The Truth comes from a hop blend so aromatic and complex you’ll almost forget you’re drinking an 8.7% Imperial.
  • Double Dog Double IPA – With an ABV over 12%, the wild, untamed Double Dog Double IPA is seductively full-bodied, with a deep red color and subdued malty sweetness. World famous gonzo artist Ralph Steadman put it so succinctly when he declared that Double Dog is, “For that night. That other goddamn night.”

“Over the last few months, we saw that interest in variety packs spiked; people were reaching for beer that would keep their fridges full and their options open,” said James Maravetz, VP of Marketing for Flying Dog Brewery. “We created this limited release variety pack of heavy hitters for all beer lovers to enjoy, but especially for the folks who are still spending extra time at home….or in their concrete-reinforced underground bunker.”

The Stay the F*ck Home Emergency Pack is scheduled to roll out at the tail end of June and will hang around for a limited time. You can expect to find this Variety 12-Pack of 12 oz. bottles at select craft beer-focused retailers located in Maryland, North Carolina, South Carolina and throughout the rest of Flying Dog’s distribution area.  Prost!
