Flying Dog Brewery
George Stranahan, adventurer, astrophysicist and beer enthusiast founded Flying Dog with his friend Richard McIntyre. The name occurred to him during a climb on the K2, when he saw in a hotel a painting of what he thought was a flying dog. George had a long friendship with his famous neighbor Hunter S. Thompson. The legendary author in turn introduced him to his friend and illustrator Ralph Steadman, who still designs the labels for the brewery.
