Maryland’s Flying Dog Brewing and Evolution Brewing are combining their skills to create Natural Selection – a 3 part beer release series. The first beer will be Genus One, a stock ale, that will release in March. After that each brewery will brew a second batch with Flying Dog’s being dry hopped for Genus Two and Evolution’s barrel aged to create Genus Three.
“We’ve had a lot of fun at Evolution designing beers to pair with different barrel types and this is an opportunity to expand on that experience. Creating a beer that can express barrel character in our release while complementing dry-hopping in the Flying Dog version was a great challenge and I’m looking forward to the results.” -Geoff DeBisschop of Evolution Brewing
Genus One will debut at this year’s Craft Brewers Conference in Washington DC. Genus Two and Genus Three will be ready in October. All three releases will only be available in the Mid-Atlantic market.
