From Flying Dog – Whether it’s a diet-breaking bag of cookies, dinner rolls in an 80 year old’s purse, money in the mattress, or Willie Nelson’s back pocket, everyone has a secret stash. For us, it’s the locally-sourced ingredients we’re using in our Secret Stash Harvest Ale. A celebration of Maryland’s agricultural roots, each years batch will be a little different. And we’ve found the perfect person to share our stash with. 2012 – American Wheat ale made with 30% wheat malt and 10% rye malt, hopped with Chinook and Cascade from Frederick County.
