Flying Dog Brewery Withdraws from Brewer's Association Due to Lewd Naming Prohibition


Recommended Posts

Earlier this month, Flying Dog Brewery withdrew their membership in the Brewers Association.  This is on the heels of the Brewers Association recent prohibition/suggestions that breweries refrain from issuing marketing that is “sexually explicit, lewd, or demeaning brand names, language, text, graphics, photos, video, or other images.”

It will be interesting to see if anyone else follows suit.  Prior to Flying Dog's withdrawal, I had the opportunity to ask Jim Caruso, FD's CEO what he thought about the change.  He totally went off and became animated.  I certainly struck a cord with my question.  Jim and Flying Dog sued the Michigan Alcohol Board (and ultimately won) when Raging Bitch, their very good Belgian style IPA was banned from sale in the state.
