Old Bay Beer: The Seafood Companion We Wish We Knew About Before

When thinking about Old Bay, two things that quickly come to mind is some fresh seafood and a glass of ice-cold beer.

I just learned that you can now enjoy two of those elements in a single sip. Yup, turns out Old Bay Beer is a very real thing.

Old Bay partnered up with Flying Dog, Maryland’s largest brewery, to release a beer called Dead Rise five years ago. Because of its exclusivity, Flying Dog is the only brewery in existence to use Old Bay seasoning in their product. The name Dead Rise pay homage to the Chesapeake fishing boats that gather shellfish year-round.

Originally a blonde ale, the beer is now brewed as a gose boasting a lemony tartness with little bitterness and 5.7% ABV.

For those interested in checking it out, you can locate a bottle through their beer finder. Man, now I’m craving seafood.
