July 2010 Issue: Fond Farewell (for now)
This month begins on a bit of a somber note, as we say goodbye to Flying Dog. (A moment of silence, please.)
Unfortunately, US demand for this fine pack of brews has overtaken its ability to supply Asia until they build up on their capacities.
So... it's been a good (beer) run, but for now, it's farewell. To give the pack a special sendoff, we're offering a limited number of Flying Dog promo packs until supplies last. Grab 'em before they go!

p.s. We do have some new and exciting things brewing over the next couple of months, so be sure to watch out for them in future newsletters!
