Flying Dog and Jailbreak Collaborate on Beer to Benefit Ellicott City Flood Relief: Watershed Moment Belgian IPA
02 September 2016
From Flying Dog & Jailbreak:
Frederick, MD – The craft beer community is exactly that: A community that takes care
of its own. When flooding in late July devastated Ellicott City – a haven for artisans and
independent businesses – two Maryland breweries knew they could help.
Flying Dog Brewery and Jailbreak Brewing Company will release Watershed Moment
Belgian IPA next week with 100 percent of the profits benefiting flood relief for Ellicott
City. The beer will premiere on Friday, September 9 at both Judge’s Bench and The Wine
Bin in downtown Ellicott City.
“I was born and raised in Ellicott City, so this obviously hit home for me,” Flying Dog
CMO Ben Savage said. “The beauty of craft beer is being able to be creative, nimble and
spring to action for incredible projects like this.”
The beer itself is a hybrid of Jailbreak’s Poor Righteous IPA and Flying Dog’s Raging Bitch
Belgian-Style IPA. The malt bill is from Poor Righteous, the hops are a blend of those
used in both beers and the yeast is the El Diablo Belgian strain used in Raging Bitch.
“It’s been an honor & a blessing to be accepted into the Howard County community,”
said Justin Bonner, CEO and Co-Founder of Jailbreak Brewing Company. “So when
Ellicott City called upon its community for assistance, we felt compelled to help our
neighbors in their time of need.”
Watershed Moment will be available on draft and in cans exclusively in the Howard
County and Baltimore area markets for a limited time. Bond Distributing and Hub Labels
also contributed to the project, and a donation to the Ellicott City Partnership will also
