Dead Rise Ale, Flying Dog Brewery, Frederick MD


Back in high school Utz introduced the Crab Chip, a potato chip with Old Bay seasoning (Herr’s now has the partnership).  Naturally this Baltimoron had to try.  On my first taste I didn’t know what to make of it, now I can’t get enough.  I had a flashback to that sensation when I first tasted Dead Rise.  While I’m a huge fan of Flying Dog, I really don’t know what to make of this beer.

In case you are wondering, yes, you can detect the Old Bay in the finish.  A neighbor suggested I could get the same by sprinkling Old Bay into Natty Boh.  I disagree.  National Premium, in its pale dry glory, is a better comparison.  All I know is I live north of Philly and after drinking Dead Rise I am craving a dozen Maryland #1’s.

Cudos to Flying Dog for supporting the Bay’s Watermen, I’m hoping this beer will grow on me like the potato chips did.
