Firestone Walker Flying Dog Hydra Cuvee Collaboration
Firestone Walker and Flying Dog Brewery have teamed up and created Hydra Cuvee.
Hydra Cuvee is a robust porter that has been blended with 2 barrel aged beers and weighs in at 10% ABV.
The barrel-aged beers were selected from Firestone Walker’s Barrelworks program Monday by brewmasters Matt Brophy (ours) and Matt Brynildson (theirs). They chose Bravo, a bourbon barrel-aged Imperial Brown Ale, and DDBA, a bourbon barrel-aged Special English Bitter. These two beers will be blended with the Imperial Porter, inspired by our Gonzo, and Wookey Jack Black Rye IPA to create the Hydra Cuvée.
Combining elements of both coasts, new world bold meets old world sensibility in our collaboration with Firestone Walker for this year’s exclusive SAVOR commemorative beer.
This beer will only be available at SAVOR Craft Beer in Washington DC on May 9th and 10th. For more information check out event listing here.
The Hydra represents three beasts – The Lion, the Bear, and the Flying Dog – coming together as one. The Cuvée? A robust porter blended with two barrel-aged beers.
