Flying Dog Dead Rise Restaurant Week set for June 19-25

Frederick-based Flying Dog Brewery is celebrating the second year of its wildly popular seasonal release, Dead Rise Old Bay Summer Ale, with a week-long restaurant promotion.

And Dead Rise is very, very popular. "In 25 years, we've never seen more demand for not only one of our beers, but also any craft beer in general," said Flying Dog CEO Ben Savage. "Last year's initial release was such an overwhelming success that we increased this year's distribution to Virginia, Pennsylvania, Delaware, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, West Virginia and North Carolina, along with export to the United Kingdom."

Dead Rise Restaurant Week will be held June 19-25 at a dozen Baltimore restaurants, including Aggio, Cunningham's, Gertrude's, Ouzo Bay and Wit & Wisdom. The participating restaurants are each represented by a recipe in "The Dead Rise Old Bay Cookbook, Volume II."

During Dead Rise Restaurant Week, each restaurant will feature their recipes, alongside the beer, at their venue.

The promotion begins on June 19 with a kickoff party at Alewife, which will feature an a la carte menu of Chesapeake-inspired fare from chef Chad Wells.

The week concludes on June 25 with a patio party at Wit & Wisdom, featuring small bites created for the event by Wit & Wisdom executive chef Zack Mills and visiting chefs Bryan Voltaggio, Mike Correll (Fleet Street Kitchen) and Tim Dyson (Dooby's).

Tickets for the June 25 Dead Rise patio party at Wit & Wisdom are $35 on Missiontix and include one Flying Dog beer and promotional koozie upon arrival, along with live entertainment and the chef's bites.

Dead Rise was developed by Flying Dog brewers in collaboration with McCormick Old Bay spice experts. Proceeds from sales of Dead Rise and the cookbook will benefit Maryland's True Blue program, a seafood-awareness initiative developed by the Maryland Department of Natural Resources.
