Flying Dog and Jailbreak collaborate on beer to benefit Ellicott City flood relief

Flying Dog and Jailbreak have teamed up to create special beer to benefit the flood victims in Ellicott City.

Watershed Moment Belgian IPA will be released Friday, Sept. 9 and 100% of the profits will benefit flood relief for Ellicott City.

The beer will premiere at two Main Street businesses that opened since the flood: Judge's Bench and The Wine Bin. They were at the top of the hill and only had some minor damage from the flooding.

“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 is a hybrid of Jailbreak's Poor Righteous IPA and Flying Dog's Raging Bitch Belgian-Style IPA. 

“It’s been an honor and 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 Moments will be available on draft and in cans exclusively in the Howard County and Baltimore area markets for a limited time.
