Flying Dog Sprint for Spat Cancelled

Flying Dog Brewery has made the difficult decision to cancel all events in 2020 including Sprint for Spat.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is asking that employers do everything possible to slow the spread of COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus. We are following all of the procedures recommended by the CDC and OSHA in order to provide a safe, clean, healthy work environment for our employees.

In addition to our ongoing internal health and safety practices, given the recent guidance from the CDC and direction from Governor Hogan about limiting attendance at large gatherings, we have made the decision to close our tasting room as well as an extra precaution to protect the health and safety of our employees and our community. Brewery operations are not affected at this time.

For those already registered, refunds will be issued within the week as we work with our partners at We look forward to drinking beers and running (or…walking, or maybe, just drinking) with all of you in a world where it’s safe to do so again. If you have additional questions, please e-mail Kristin at

The Oyster Recovery Partnership is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that designs and implements sustainable oyster restoration, aquaculture and commercial fishery activities to improve the environment and expand economic opportunities in the Chesapeake Bay. Over the past two decades, ORP has planted nearly 8 billion oysters on 2,460 underwater acres throughout Maryland.

Help them continue this important work by making a donation – $1 plants as many as 100 oysters! If one adult oyster can filter 50 gallons of water per day, imagine the impact of thousands!
