“The Orioles continue to innovate when it comes to working with local companies,” Flying Dog CMO Ben Savage said, “and with Maryland beer continuing to grow, we are thrilled to be at the forefront.”
Flying Dog beer will be available throughout Oriole Park at Camden Yards for the 2014 season. The Flying Dog Grill in the lower level is back for another season and the brewery’s beers will be available at The Roof Deck, Free State Pub, Dempsey’s Brew Pub, Stuggy’s, and more.
Flying Dog and the Orioles are also continuing the popular Firkin Friday program, where cask-conditioned beer is sold at both the Flying Dog Grill (lower level, section 27) and The Roof Deck bar above centerfield at every Friday home game.
“Oriole Park was the first ballpark in the country to feature cask-conditioned beer,” Savage said. “It was an honor to forge that path with them and now continue the program for the fans.”
