Best Local Beer Denver 2003 - Old Scratch
Flying Dog Brewery
Denver, CO 80210
Readers' Choice: Fat Tire
Flying Dog bottles up a whole line of brews -- from a deep chocolate porter to crisp lagers. But even without the Ralph Steadman label, Old Scratch would come out head and shoulders above the competition. An amber ale with a sharp bite and stinging, peppery aftertaste, Old Scratch has much more punch than the lagers. No doubt about it: This dog can hunt.
