On a camping trip in the Himalayas, George Stranahan and Richard McIntyre beheld a perplexing airborne creature nearing their campsite. As it came closer and closer, they had no choice but to believe what they were seeing: a flying dog. It swooped through their campsite, rustled their belongings, scattered the sherpas and flew off into the distance. The two men were unharmed, but not untouched. The pair believed that the flying dog was a sign that they were to do something big. And so they did. George and Richard founded the now-legendary Flying Dog Brewery.
