(Frederick, MD) – Flying Dog is partnering with All Good Presents on the All Good Music Festival and Camp Out – July 9-11 in Summit Point, West Virginia – and on the brewery’s first Summer Sessions outdoor concert featuring Hurray for the Riff Raff on June 20.
“We strive to enter partnerships with organizations that share our same values and commitment to the arts,” Flying Dog CMO Ben Savage said. “All Good is an established yet progressive force in our regional music scene and was a natural fit for us. We are excited that the festival has moved back so close to home.”
Now in its 18th year, the All Good Music Festival and Camp Out will feature 32 bands with headliners including Primus, moe., Cake, and Thievery Corporation. In addition to serving multiple styles of beer throughout the festival, Flying Dog is developing a new beer exclusively for the event. The All Good Ale promises to be perfect for the heat of summer with refreshing passion fruit and wild berry hop notes.
“We view craft beer as an art form and encourage any opportunity to share our art with artistically-minded partners like All Good,” Savage said.
Want to get the first taste? The first keg of the All Good Ale will be tapped at Flying Dog’s June 20 concert and then at select music venues in the Baltimore and DC-metro areas leading up to the festival.
And since a one-of-a-kind beer deserves a one-of-a-kind experience, Flying Dog is also teaming up with Gibson Guitars to host VIP meet and greets throughout the festival weekend and a raffle for a Gibson Guitar.
Entry to win passes for the meet and greets, which will feature multiple artists and firkin tappings of All Good Ale, will be available online and for all ticket holders. Proceeds from the Gibson Guitar raffle will benefit the Believe in Music Foundation, and any festivalgoer who purchases a Flying Dog beer will be able to enter the raffle.
Last year, All Good brought JJ Grey & Mofro to the Flying Dog brewery concert series, and this year present Hurray for the Riff Raff, whose blend of Americana, folk, bluesy soul and mantra of connecting people through music immediately resonated with everyone involved.
“Their music seamlessly sweeps across a variety of musical genres with depth and creativity,” Savage said. “We’re really excited to have them be part of this series and can’t wait for the show.”
The June 20 show, with Mechanical River opening for Hurray for the Riff Raff, is Flying Dog’s first concert of the series and will feature an array of obscure and limited-release beers alongside the areas best food trucks.
Tickets for Flying Dog’s first Summer Sessions concert for the year are $25 and available via FlyingDogTix.com. And tickets for the All Good Music Festival and Camp Out are on sale and available now on AllGoodFestival.com.
