Flying Dog Airwaves India Pale Lager Recipe – Straight From The Brewery!

The fine brewers at Flying Dog have released their recipe for India Pale Lager.

From Flying Dog:

Matt Brophy was first introduced to brewing while listening to the smooth sounds of CHARLIE PAPAZIAN, renowned godfather of homebrewing and nuclear physicist, discussing the trials and tribulations of brewing on NPR. A then 17-year-old Matt was so inspired, he ran out to buy Charlie’s penultimate The Complete Joy of Homebrewing. The rest, as they say, is history.

Now some years later, a perfect storm of brewing conditions would cause Matt and Charlie’s paths to cross again. The American Homebrewers Association, whose membership refers to Charlie as Mr. President, held their annual conference in Baltimore earlier this summer, just east of our fair brewery. Matt and Charlie connected and put together the aptly-named Airwaves, an India Pale Lager that showcases Matt and Charlie’s collective love of hops.

To no one’s surprise the commemorative beer was a hit, and while we only brewed enough for the conference we knew we would have homebrewers looking for more. We tucked a little bit away and got the go ahead to share the recipe with you so that is exactly what we plan to do.

On WEDNESDAY, JULY 20 stop by the brewery and enjoy a sample of Airwaves and PICK UP THE RECIPE TO BREW AT HOME OR SHARE WITH FRIENDS. It’s like the old saying goes, give a man a beer and his immediate thirst will be satisfied, teach a man to brew and he will lead a life of passion and purpose.

Worldwide Map Of Homebrewers – connect with others in your area

As of a service to the homebrewing community world wide Home Brew Supply has created a worldwide map of homebrewers and homebrew clubs.

About from Home Brew Supply: “Homebrewing itself is at the very core of Homebrew Supply, and if it weren’t for Homebrew Clubs across the United States people like myself wouldn’t have developed an ambition to homebrew. Because of this dire need for community we decided to establish a physical map of everyone that shares our passion.

The Global Hombrewer Connection™ is an open source for both Homebrewers and Homebrew Clubs. The hope is that through this map we can facilitate the creation of new Homebrew Clubs while also encouraging growth in established Clubs.

Cheers to the prosperity of Homebrewers, Clubs, and a continued love for our craft!”
