GonzoFest joins forces with Hard Times Café Chili Cook-Off on September 13


Frederick, MD – August 19, 2008 – Flying Dog Brewery announces GonzoFest 2008 to occur on September 13 at the Flying Dog Brewery in Frederick, Maryland from 3:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

The annual throwdown will feature live music and host the Hard Times Café Chili Cook-Off for the Maryland State Chili Cook-Off Championship. 

In addition to the eclectic sounds of four different bands and the taste of competition caliber chili, attendees can enjoy a variety of Flying Dog beer and tours of the Flying Dog brewery.

A complementary souvenir mug and beer samples are included in the price of admission. 

“GonzoFest is really a representation of Flying Dog’s core values which are “purposeful, provocative irreverence,” explains Neal Stewart, director of marketing for Flying Dog.”  This year’s event will definitely be provocatively irreverent with tons of live music and samples of our award-winning beers. But it will also be purposeful with a portion of the proceeds going to the Heartly House which serves Frederick County residents who have been impacted by domestic violence, sexual assault, and child abuse.”

Admission to GonzoFest is $12 in advance and $15 at the door. For more information, visit or call 301-694-7899.
