Just when we thought beer had gone too far being brewed with brains and beard hair, Old Bay Brand Seasoning has decided they too want in on the beer game. Flying Dog Brewery has created a specialty ale commemmorating the seasoning’s 75th anniversary by brewing up the spice into some spirits.
Dead Rise OLD BAY Summer Ale will highlight the indelible character of OLD BAY through bright and refreshing citrus hop character and a crisp, tart finish.
Brewers perfected the recipe over six months in order to fully incorporate the signature flavors of the seasoning. Though the idea seems odd it’s not unusual to see Old Bay used in drinks, such as Bloody Marys, to get that salty, savory, spicy kick.
Dead Rise OLD BAY Summer Ale will hit store shelves in Maryland, DC, Virginia, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Delaware, New Jersey, New York, and North Carolina starting on Memorial Day. The limited edition brew will only be available through Labor Day.
